Closet Cleanup!

Closet looking overloaded and tacky? Maybe it’s time to do a little cleaning! We’re sure you’ve got clothes (and a whole lot of other stuff) there that you barely even use. It’s time to pack ‘em up and ship ‘em out.
We’ll show you how!

You can start by preparing yourself. Get 8 containers or boxes and label them for the following:
• In-season things to keep
• Out-of-season things to keep
• Things to donate
• Things to sell
• Things to recycle/throw away
• Things for another room
• Shoes
• Accessories

Next, you need to sort through EVERYTHING as you go. Empty it completely, by designating them to the various containers or boxes that you labeled.

Now, it’s time to clean. Dust, vacuum, and wipe down shelves, baseboards, switch plates and even doorknobs. Give the place a thorough shine! You’ll see the difference soon.

Let’s organize! You placed all your stuff in the boxes and containers, so now it’s time to organize them. Throw away the trash items. Pack “out-of-season” items away, in another designated storage unit, put things to sell in your garage and put things to donate in your car.

Now, back to your closet! Hang similar items closer together – like long sleeve shirts in one area, pants in another and short sleeve shirts in another. Fold things like sweaters to help conserve closet space.

We hope these pointers were helpful! Your closet will look more clean, refreshed and spacious. You can even think about putting all your other extra stuff in a mini storage unit and away from the comfort of your bedroom. We’ve got what you are looking for concerning self-storage in Ottawa.
