Organization Matters

Are you always searching for your keys? Stop the endless search with help from the professionals at Stored Away Self Storage because we understand organization matters. When life gets too hectic organization is key. Use the strategies below to keep every room in your home as efficient as possible.

Organization Matters

Living Room:

  • Tidy up as you move. If you’re passing from room-to-room pick up articles as you go. Don’t leave toys laying around if you are passing the toy chest on your way out of the family room.
  • A coat rack, key bin, and mail organizer will keep clutter to a minimum as soon as you walk in the door.
  • Furniture with hidden storage is perfect for games, blankets, and movies.
  • Keep things clean. Run a dust rag once a week or vacuum those odd areas every now and then. Tackling one task a week will help keep your living room in tip top shape.

Bedroom:

  • Adding storage under the bed is a great spot for out of season clothes. Add wheels to the bottom of the drawers to create an east access storage area.
  • Your clothes can take over your room very fast. Make edits to your wardrobe of items you have not worn in an extended period of time.
  • If your drawers are a problem area, focus on drawer organizers. Make sure you measure your space before committing to your favorite.
  • Pick an organization plan to follow when hanging your clothes, color coded, by style or by occasion. Whichever system you choose stick to it.

Playroom:

  • Asking family members to buy tickets to the zoo or museums for special holidays rather than toys will help cut down on an overabundance of toys.
  • Use clear bins so kids can see exactly what is inside and can easily find the right toy.
  • Keep shelves and bins clearly labeled for easy clean up.
  • Turn clean up time into a game or add a song to make transitions from one activity to another smooth.

Office:

  • Think vertical! Add as many shelves to the wall as you can to make the most of your wall space.
  • Go through your files at least once a month to cycle out old bills and junk files.
  • Use a drawer divider to keep notepads readily available instead of being buried by other office supplies.
  • Make a command center for yourself with bulletin boards and a calendar. This will make staying on top of bills much easier.

Don’t let life take over your organization system. Stay on top of the clutter with Stored Away Self Storage.
