You put things in storage because you want to be able to retrieve them again when you need them, so why not make the process easier? The way you organize your storage space will help you find what you are looking for faster.
Prioritize frequently used items. Think ahead before you start loading anything into your space. Put the items you’re going to need soonest and most often up in front so they stay in plain sight, and will be easy to retrieve.
Use smaller boxes. If you’re like most people, you’ll probably wind up with stacks of boxes in your unit. Even if you are careful to put the heavier boxes on the bottom, you may still be shifting things around occasionally. The more adjustments you make, the more thankful you will be that you kept the boxes as light as possible.
Store like things together. Advance planning will also help you to create zones for sports equipment or musical instruments. That way you won’t have to search the entire unit to locate one item.
Level up your labeling. As time goes by, you may forget what exactly is in that box you labeled “kitchen stuff” or “Grandpa.” Details are your friend. List the contents, and put a copy of the label on each side of the box. You may want to add photos too.
Create a center aisle. Aim to keep an open space down the middle of your unit. Leave yourself enough room to walk safely and comfortably.
