Clear Storage Bins Model Karolina Kurkova has stated that she uses clear bins to organize her shoe collection. This technique allows her to see exactly what’s inside each bin instead of hiding the pair of shoes away in an opaque box, leaving them less likely to ever be used. Using bins also allows her to stack and sort her collection by season and label the exterior of each bin. You can find similar bins at the Container Store that allow you to access your shoes from the front so you don’t have to unstack boxes to get to the pair you want.

The best first step to take is decluttering your home of unwanted items that are not being used.If you realize that you can’t part with some of the excess, you may need to consider moving any non-essential furniture, toys, and holiday decorations to a storage unit instead. This frees up space for more frequently used items to be stored in your limited household storage space. Also, you should consider updating how you keep these areas organized, which will help maximize how much you can store at home. Create a Pantry that Maximizes Storage Space and Efficiency One area that many households struggle to keep organized during the school year is the pantry.

If you don’t have a centralized location to store food, consider creating one in a closet or garage corner nearest your kitchen. Utilize a Variety of Sortable Storage Options Students, whether in college or grade school, need a variety of portable storage options for these items collected from their classes and extracurriculars. This can be a real challenge if your home has limited closet space and creates disorganized heaps of belongings all over your home. To contain this situation, the use of bookshelves with smaller basket containers to separate supplies into more manageable categories can prevent school clutter from invading every room of your home.Another organizational idea is to use pegboards on a wall to make mounting of pocket shelving and similar hanging storage containers easier to use.
