Seen something like this before? I have.
Organizing your storage unit can be tricky. In an effort to declutter your home, you might have gotten a storage unit. You certainly don’t want your storage unit to become the new mess. So we found a few tips to help you organize. This way, when you go rummaging around in your unit, technically, it should be easier to find what you’re looking for.
Take a Picture
Taking a picture of your stuff before you put it away in storage can help you remember what you actually put in your storage. Sometimes we just grab a whole bunch of stuff without thinking when we are decluttering our homes and we don’t stop to think whether or not we might need it within the next little while. So having a picture can make it easier to do a little investigative work when you go looking for that “thing” you need.
I mean it. Every box. And every box inside that box. Use tape and a black sharpie. I like the painters tape. The green stuff and the blue stuff. You can see the marker really well on it . And then make sure the labels are facing toward you so when you open your unit, you can see all of the labels easily.
Draw a map
I know what you’re thinking. But I’m not really talking about a detailed treasure map. Just a basic floor plan. If you group all your boxes and items according to its contents, you’re basic floor plan will help you find the stuff you need that much quicker.
