5 Best Ways to Organize Your Self-Storage, Lexington, South Carolina

Organizing your self-storage makes it easy to get what you need when you need it. The last thing you want to do is sift through identical boxes to find the one thing you need. Being unorganized leads you to spending excess time on less important matters. Get in and out of your storage easily by incorporating these organization tips.

How to Organize Your Self-Storage

1. Categorize Your Items by Necessity

Decide which items you might need more access to. For example, seasonal clothing and holiday decorations are needed at specific times of the year. Knowing you will be coming back for specific items will help you organize your storage more efficiently.

2. Label Your Boxes

self-storageAfter categorizing your items, label the boxes accordingly. Include the category of items that are stored in a specific box — Camping Supplies, for example. You may even note the exact items that are stored inside of the box. The more details you add, the easier it will be to retrieve your items.

3. Plan Your Layout

How you fit your items into your self-storage unit will give you an advantage — or disadvantage — to getting to your items efficiently. Storage items you can’t foresee using should be placed into the unit first so they’re further away from items you will frequently use. Items you need to retrieve regularly should be packed in last so it’s up front with easy access.

4. Create & Post a Map

You don’t have to be an artist to create a map of how you stored your belongings. A simple outline of where things are can be a great help when you need those less-sought-out items. Post your map on the inside of your self-storage so you can see it when you need it.

5. Upgrade to a Larger Unit

No matter how much you organize and layout the floor plan in your unit, you might just need a bigger space. If you pack your items like a puzzle, it’ll fit, but will your belongings be accessible? Not only do you need enough space for your items, but you’ll also need enough space to get around them. Don’t hesitate to purchase a bigger unit if you need it.
