With the holidays in full swing, you have more food and more stuff to organize. If you want to ensure that the top shelf is available for hidden gifts, you need to be sure everything has a place. To help you out this season, here are five tips for maximizing your closet space for the holidays.
Tip #1: Use Hanging Storage
Whether you are storing pairs of shoes or cans of soup, hanging storage turns your door space into somewhere to put things. As your pantry fills up with extra people you are feeding, you’ll thank yourself for using every wall.
Hanging storage has several over-the-counter purchase options you can find online. Just be sure you measure out the space you need before making any purchase.
Tip #2: Use The Space Under Your Bed
Shoes and clothes that typically see less use have a great opportunity under your bed. While it isn’t ideal for hiding presents (because of snoopy children), it is excellent for putting a bit of a red herring.
If your kids look under the bed, some sticky notes might ward them off going forward. Regardless of how you fool your kids, the space under your bed is great for items you don’t need immediate access to.
This strategy will also prevent you from kicking unwanted stuff under your bed. The bd is a great infinite hole to lose all of your belongings in if left unchecked. If you stuff it full of other belongings, it is challenging to lose stuff there.
Tip #3: Establish an Organization System
Organization systems are great for knowing where things need to go. If you don’t have one yet, the holidays are a perfect time to test your organizational skills while the closets are highly likely to be stuffed.
The right system will make you feel like you are underutilizing it during the summer months. The extra space will be a nice change (assuming you don’t live in a small area).
Don’t be afraid to establish seasonal systems that change depending on what’s going on. For example, you might not need regular access to coats and scarves during summer.
Tip #4: Invest In Some Wall Organizers
Wall organizers are large, flat surfaces you can place between essential areas. These organizers can be helpful if you want to separate pantries into different food types.
Being able to access your food easily will help you save time and money. This strategy will also prevent the grocery trip where you need to buy a fifth bottle of soy sauce, even though you have six others stored in the back.
You can also insert them into closets for storing small items. You can easily separate Socks and underwear if you have a closet (or dresser) with a divider.
