Organization & Storage: Get Organized

Garage

Shelving units that click together can be a real asset; Rubbermaid® units are inexpensive and can hold up to 500lbs. They can be set-up in a series to accommodate all sorts of large heavy storage items. Also, bicycle racks can be used to pull bikes from the ground up to the ceiling, which keeps them out of the way but allows easy access when you need them.

Laundry Room

Add shelving to your walls using simple wall brackets and white laminate shelving to hold all of you cleaners, garbage bags, paper products and more. Hooks and hanging devices are also a great way to keep brooms and mops organized.

Closets

Consider installing a few closet organizers. These cost as little as $50.00 and can help you get up to 20% more storage space out of your closets. They install in as little as 30 minutes.

Bathroom

Here is a tight space! Start by installing a shelf kit in the vanity to double what you can keep under the sink. A couple of shelves over the toilet can also help keep needed items close by. And, if you only have a mirror, consider replacing it with a medicine cabinet or surface mount one on an adjacent wall.

Change of Clothes

Make sure that you have at least one change of clothes for your move in case your belongings are delayed.
