Organizing My Storage Unit

I have always been one of those people who is obsessed with organization, which is probably why I set out to create a completely organized and easy to use storage unit. I wanted the entire space to be simple to go through and a breeze to move out of, so I started boxing, labeling, and stacking things accordingly. It took a little bit of time, but before I knew it, my entire storage space was gleaming and beautiful. This blog is completely dedicated to creating a storage space that will work well for your lifestyle and streamline your next move.

How To Keep Your Self Storage Unit Organized

Planning on freeing up some space at home by renting a self storage unit? This is an excellent way to temporarily get things out of sight that you do not need all year round. Instead of haphazardly putting things into the storage unit, it helps to know how to keep the space organized. These simple tips will help you do it.

Use Clear Bins

It could be months before you need to take something out of storage, and your memory will not be that great when it comes to what is in each box. It helps to use clear bins that will let you see what is stored inside them. Instead of taking the contents out of each box to confirm what is inside, you'll easily be able to easily see what is inside.

Use Rolling Racks

Storage spaces can be quite tight, and if you end up leaving an aisle in the middle of the space to access everything, you'll lose valuable square footage that you are paying for. It will help to use rolling racks that you can easily move around to get to items in the storage unit. Your back will thank you when you do not have to move stacks of boxes in order to get to the row of boxes behind them.

Create a Simple Inventory

You should take the time to create a simple inventory of your items before they go into storage, that way you know exactly where they are. The extent of the inventory depends on how much work you want to put into it.

For example, if you are using rolling racks, you can make a list of what rack the item is on. Assign each rack a letter, and this will give you an idea of where to find it when it's time to get it out of storage.

If you want a more in-depth inventory, take it one step further and label your boxes with numbers. As you put items away, make note of the rack letter and box number that it is in, and write it down on a spreadsheet. It will help you quickly find where it is.

These are just a few tips that will help keep that storage unit nice and organized. If you are looking for more ideas, reach out to your local self storage facility. They can let you know what renters typically do for organization in their facility. For more information, contact companies like Discount Storage.
