Creative ideas for organizing your self-storage

Having a messy storage unit is a big no if you ask us. Why store your belongings if you are not going to take out the time to organize them well? This means that in reality, you don’t really need these things as you are not doing what it takes to protect them and keep them as they were even after they were stored away. Your storage unit needs to be organized for plenty of other reasons. One of them would be this – protecting your belongings from damage. And another one would be just the pure fact that your storage has to be organized in case you need to grab something from it. You won’t be able to do so if your self-storage unit is a complete mess. That is why we decided to give you a couple of our creative ideas for organizing your self-storage unit.

Get colored boxes

Getting colored boxes isn’t an expense. This is an investment. This is going to make organizing so much easier. Color-coordination was proven to work best when it comes to storing things. This is because, after some time, you simply forget what’s inside of which box. And if you haven’t labeled your boxes or color-coordinated them, you will have to open every single one of them to find what you are looking for.

Having multiple color boxes also makes your self-storage unit look much nicer. Especially if you are someone who pays attention to matching colors. Your storage unit can end up looking very nice all while being very organized. If you are an artist renting a self-storage unit, use colored wrapping paper and bags for covering your art.

Use as much of the space as possible

If you want to use as much of the space inside of your self-storage unit, you’ll love these few tips for organizing your self-storage. Use your walls as much as possible for hanging things. Not everything has to be on shelves or on the floor. Buying hooks is a great way to make some more storing space in your unit. Hang baskets or something similar and you’ve got yourself new storing space. This is the best way to save money when hiring storage – to use as much of it as possible.

You don’t have to use only shelves. Use hooks too.

Divide your storage unit into sectors

This is just a couple of square feet we are talking about but that doesn’t mean you can’t divide your self-storage unit into a couple of sectors. For example, if you have some furniture that needs to be stored away, make sure you put all of it in one corner of the unit and just keep on adding other furniture that you want to store. It is as simple as that. Do this with clothing, kids’ toys, books, and other things that you might be storing away.
