Storage Tips

Spring cleaning is almost in full affect and you might be wondering how to store items more efficiently. Here’s a small list that might help you get started:

  • Instead of cardboard boxes, use plastic containers so you can see the items inside.
  • Label boxes or containers on all sides and the top; or print a list of all items and tape it on the outside of the box.
  • Pads, sheets and blankets are a great way to protect fragile items.
  • Boxes should be stored with the heavier boxes and items on the bottom.
  • To save space, take apart items like your table, bed frame or bookcases.
  • When storage appliances such as a microwave or a refrigerator, leave the doors slightly open to avoid mildew.
  • Instead of folding clothing items, use wardrobe boxes so items can remain hanging.
  • Create a master list of all the items you are storing.
