More shelf space
Three problem areas.
1 Linen cabinet
Gently folded in stacks of linen over time turns into a complete mess.
-Put clean blankets, blankets and bedspreads that you don’t use on the top shelf. Just do not store them in plastic packaging that does not leak moisture. Better put folded in a cotton cloth bag or in a grid for washing clothes.
-Try to use metal shelf dividers, baskets, sections and modules for storage. To save more space, learn to pack.
-Towels folded three times, fit the size of standard shelves, look neater and crumple less. Fold small terry cloths in a separate basket or put on top, so as not to lose them in a pile.
- Sheets: You can put pillowcases inside to make room on the shelf. If you are afraid to mix sizes, place the kits on different shelves or use colored stickers for labeling. Keep order in the closet as you remove items from the wash.
2 Utility cabinet
The place where it is most difficult to maintain order.
-Brushes and mops with a long handle can be stored in a suspended state on special hardware or mounted inside the cabinet with simple hooks. Another option is to use a tall, narrow basket or garbage bin for storage.
-Household chemistry it is more convenient to store in metal boxes-nets.
-For hammer and screwdrivers Use inexpensive tool boxes or regular shoe boxes. Put light bulbs and wires in transparent containers.
-Vacuum cleaner: Make sure there is enough space in the cabinet for it. But remove the vacuum cleaner at the very end, so that later it is easier to get out.
There is always not enough free space in it.
- Hang the clothes correctly. Buy thin hangers with a rubberized surface that prevents clothes from constantly slipping to the floor.
-Use the door. Place on it a hanging section for shoes or hooks for hats and scarves. It is also convenient to hang the clothes of your guests on them.
Dressing Room Rule No. 1. Favorite and frequently used things should be stored in an accessible place.
What is stopping you?
Towels and sheets: In your free time, review the bedding.
Old and shed - use instead of rags for dust and floor, in the car or as a dog bedding.
Household assets: Remove hazardous chemicals, solvents, or paints. They should not be in the house. If you have devices that you never use, or several that perform the same function, get rid of unnecessary ones.
Coat: Create a new order: no more than two outerwear of each family member should be hanging in the hallway.
AFTER WINTER In the spring, remove down jackets, first washing them in cardboard boxes.
