Storing stuff efficiently

  • Print


Life Desk :
While storing items in your home, always remember to minimise the amount of space while maximizing how much use you get out of your storage unit.
Keep all small items in a drawer in your cupboard and mark it so that you remember what you have stored in it.
You can place metal sheets inside the cabinets in your kitchen area to clip recipes, instead of placing them on the fridge.
For your jewellery, consider using hangers to store junk jewellery like necklaces or earrings. For expensive ones, wrap them in a muslin cloth and place it inside a shoe box in your cupboard.
Use a filing cabinet to store laundry supplies and a shoe organiser to store kitchen cleaning supplies in your store room or kitchen area.
The space under your bed can be used to store coats or winter wear or off-season bedding like blankets etc.
Make way for hangers to be placed on walls near the washroom so that you can hang your clothes in there.
Instead of storing stuff on top of cupboards and under the bed, you can create a wardrobe where you can store all your belongings. This way your house will not look untidy.
Keep utensils in cabinets and not on the platform table in the kitchen. This will make your kitchen look spacious.
