Use this spring to clean and re-organize your storage
Also, spring cleaning can be easy and fun when you have the right guide to follow. Where to start, how to start, what supplies and equipment you will need? DOn’t panic, the winter and cold days are over, now it is time for a new beginning and new choices in life.
Take everything out and declutter
The first step is to take everything out of your storage and declutter. You will need a “clear canvas” so you will know exactly how to organize your self-storage unit and how much space you have to work with. Clean plastic bins you already have and shelves too. If you have food in your storage, check the expiration date and throw food away if you cannot use it anymore. Also, throw away all the items you don’t use or need anymore.
After deciding what to keep and what to toss (or donate), it is time to sort items into categories. Snacks, food in cans, winter clothing, summer clothing, etc. You will find an item you need fast when the storage is organized.
Create more shelves
If you see that you don’t have enough shelves in your storage, then create more shelves. It is easy to install them and if you are creating storage space in your home, shelves can be everywhere. In your closet, kitchen, under the stairs, etc. This will help to keep your items off the ground.
Invest in plastic bins
Use clear boxes and you will know what is inside of the box without opening it. It is a smart idea to invest in plastic bins. Make a trip to the store and buy different size containers. Most people have clear boxes in a storage unit where they keep food. They are not that expensive, but they are helping a lot.
Even if you have clear boxes, it is a good option to label each box. You can also use different colors for different categories, so everything will be more organized. Use this spring to clean and re-organize your storage and your life will be easier. Try to keep it simple and not to make clutter.
