As the weather is starting to heat up and the idea of Summer is getting closer, it’s time to put away the wooly jumpers and puffer jackets in preparation for some warmer weather.
However, that means you need somewhere to put your excess clothes! With the spare room already full and the number of boxes in your garage adding up, you need to be savvier about how you store your items.
So, to help, we’ve detailed a few handy hints and tips to make the most out of your storage and maximise your space.
• Use empty suitcases.
Chances are you probably have a few empty suitcases and luggage bags that are kicking around your house in preparation for your next holiday- as that may not be for a while, fill your empty suitcases with excess clothing and accessories and store them in an attic or garage.
This is a great tip to make use of existing space.
• Vacuum-pack big bulky Items.
If you’re storing items like puffer jackets and padded coats, then it’s best to use vacuum-sealed storage bags as they take up less storage space and will protect your coats in preparation for another Winter.
• Hang scarves instead of folding them.
Using a cheap towel rack will act as a great scarf organiser. You can either secure this to the back of your door or hang it in your wardrobe for a great space saving hack!
• Turn wine boxes into shoe storage.
The cardboard sleeves inside of wine boxes make them perfect for shoe and boot storage. If you have particularly wide shoes, you can bend or remove the cardboard slots for more room.
