Don’t Mix and Match
Whether you’re organizing your garage, attic, basement or storage shed,
this one piece of advice will go a long way in getting that area organized in a way that you will be able to maintain it:
– use the same containers –
This could mean the same bins throughout the entire space, or specific bins for each category (Christmas, keepsake, kids clothes, etc).
However you choose to organize them, having the same bins in the same area will make organizing, stacking, and locating
easier than trying to shove a bunch of mismatched bins together in one place.
Also, I typically recommend bins with locking lids when working in these areas, because they last longer and
do a better job keeping dirt, insects and who knows what else out of your bins.
