Professional organizers expound the virtues of finding a place for everything. It seems that the clutter that takes over our lives is caused by items that really don’t belong somewhere. Hence, they are simply left anywhere.
So when you’re attempting to find suitable storage for belongings, your first step will be to get organized. Begin by purging yourself of the things you don’t need or don’t want.
Although many people won’t place things they don’t want on display in their home many will tuck these very same items into drawers or closets, just in case. However, since storage space in many apartments is limited it’s important to stay focused and store away only items you know you will need at some point.
In addition, there are many things we must hold onto, even though we’d rather not. Receipts, tax returns, and other personal papers are examples. You may not need these items often, but you will probably need them sooner or later. But not all items that require storage are seldom used. There are many often-used things in our homes that need a place to “live” so when we need them we know just where to look.
