There are many things to consider when deciding the best way to organize your storage unit. The first, and most important thing to consider, is how often you will be visiting your storage unit. If frequent access is important to you, you may want to consider leaving a walkway in between things to make for easy and more efficient access. Storing items that you will access more frequently towards the front of the unit also makes for a more effective and organized system.
Remembering what’s in your storage unit will also help maintain an organized space. Numbering/labeling your boxes is a good way know what items are in each box and will help you store them in the most effective way, while being able to easily access the ones you need most. Many people choose to use the same size boxes when storing their items. Using the same-size boxes will help with stacking and convenience. When stacking your boxes, it’s important to keep in mind a couple of things. The least needed items should be stacked in the back, while the most frequently needed boxes should be towards the front. It’s also important to places heavier boxes on the bottom and lighter boxes stacked on top. Stacking boxes is efficient, but make sure not to stack them higher than your head – being that it’s more susceptible to falling. Making sure the labels are facing out will also help when trying to locate certain items. Stacking is easy and convenient, but if your storage unit is more of a long-term solution, you may want to consider adding shelves. Adding shelving in your storage unit is an efficient way to save on space and makes reaching the items you need easier and safer.
