Storage Storage
  • Plan ahead: Keep your frequently used items at the front of your unit where you can get them easily.

  • Map it: As you move into your storage space, make a simple drawing that shows where the items are placed.

  • Cover up: Protect your furniture, including mattresses and box springs, with covers designed for each item.

  • Think vertical: Make the best use of your storage area by stacking to the ceiling and working from the heaviest items on the bottom to the lightest items on top.

  • Don't overreach: Use a stool to stack and reach items stored above your head.

  • Optimize your space: Break down any furniture that has removable legs, leaves, or other parts and stack chairs seat-to-seat with towels or blankets between them.

  • Multitask: Use your refrigerator or other appliances to store things like linens, books, or CDs and wedge the door of any appliance open so air can circulate inside them.

  • Take a breath: Leave a little space between the walls of your unit and your stored items to allow for ventilation.

  • Tool up: Shovels, hoes, rakes, and hoses can be stored together in empty trash cans; stack extra cans inside one another to make more room.

  • Clear the air: If you're storing a gas-powered lawn mower or leaf blower, prevent unpleasant odors by draining the tank before you put it in your unit.

  • Be prepared: Keep an extra emergency preparedness kit in your storage unit; if your home is inaccessible, you will have a second supply resource.
