Optimize Storage in Your Own Home

Before you spend hundreds of dollars a year on a storage space tap into the unused space in your own home. For the cost of a few months or even less of what you would spend on a rental unit you can maximize your own home’s possibilities.

Beginning with the most obvious places for storing, the garage, thinking vertical can get you out of clutter fast. Install shelving around the circumference a few feet from the ceiling-perhaps even two sets of shelves. Reserve this space for things that you use don't have to retrieve often. Out of season sports gear, holiday décor, or rarely used luggage can be put in this new overhead shelving and even out of season clothes can find a home if they are properly housed inside protective plastic tubs or shrink bags.
The rest of the wall space in the garage can be used for hanging. Special hooks for hanging bicycles, tools, and yard tools, such a rakes, hoes, and garden hoses, can be purchased at home improvement warehouse stores and careful consideration of their placement can have your car back in the garage in no time. You may even free up enough space to allow you to keep your boat on your own property saving you a hefty dock fee.
Moving on up to the attic, applying the same shelving technique can be applied. This space is great for storing heirlooms that currently have no place in your home but have a place in your heart. Hope chests, school memorabilia, keepsakes, and spare materials from home improvement projects also keep well in this space.
Perhaps the least optimized space in a house is unused cabinet space. Often cabinets are incredibly deep, and it just isn't convenient to put often used cookware and china so far back and in the dark. Putting pictures, tax paperwork from previous years, owner's manuals, or anything you can think of in plastic containers at the back kitchen cabinets not only is a great storage optimizer, but correctly placed, it can also creates a barrier so that cookware does not slide back into the depths of the cabinet and become lost. To create even more space create decorative visible storage for your cookware and dishes by installing a pot rack, under cabinet hooks, and a utensil caddy leaving your cabinet totally empty and useful for concealing anything from a tool box to extra linens.
Choosing and completing a few of these weekend projects is likely to cost less than a few month's rental fee for a storage unit, it will make the most of the money you are already paying for your homeFree Reprint Articles, and it will save time as you can access your things at your own leisure.
