With our ideas, you can learn how to eliminate paper clutter, maintain an organized closet and more. Round up some of our storage must-haves (like baskets, labels, bins, file folders) and start organizing your home.


Some spaces are obvious choices for our storage and display needs. Closets, attics and garages typically handle our storage needs, while wall units, bookshelves and media centers provide great solutions for organizing and displaying our media, artworks, and collectibles.


Self-storage is a convenient solution for companies and homeowners who want to hold on to various categories of products without depositing them on their premises. After renting indoor space to organize and protect valuables, tenants should strive to create and implement their own storage system to prevent clutter inside their units. Storage containers are the central element of any onsite and offsite organizing solution, which can make or break a renter’s self-storage experience. Here are just a few examples that can help in storing some items around the house:


1.      Under the stairs. This is an area with a lot of potential. If the space is near an entryway, you could set it up to serve as a functional landing strip. A stairwell that folds into an odd nook could make an interesting place for a bold display of collectibles, oversized books or artworks.

2.      Attics and angled ceilings.  Rooms with angled ceilings can be challenging to decorate, but they also provide unique spaces for inspiring creative arrangements. Alternatively, shelving or storage can be arranged to fill odd spaces.

3.      Unused garage space. Many of us use our garages for much more than just parking our vehicles. You might use your garage to store sports equipment, tools, extra clothes, or holiday decorations. Using wall shelving is a great way to maximize garage storage, neatly keeping all your items vertically organized and off the floor. However, an often overlooked area for storage in the garage is overhead. You don’t need soaring ceilings to utilize overhead storage in your garage. Whether you have room for a full loft or just a simple ceiling mounted shelf, overhead space can provide some welcome extra storage possibilities.

4.      Storing your belongings by category. This is crucial to being able to find what you need. Start by storing your items in clear boxes and labelling everything, no matter how small or seemingly insignificant.
