Depending on your organizational style, it might help to keep a running list of all the items youâ€™re packing â€“ that way you know whatâ€™s in your storage unit when you come back to it later. Or if youâ€™re more visual, draw yourself a rough map of where you place certain boxes in storage. However you do it â€“labeling is important. Making your life easier post-storing is key for stress free storage retrieval.
Store your mattresses in an upright position wrapped in a large plastic bag or a sheet of plastic sealed with duct tape. Itâ€™s very important that it be sealed completely to prevent any moisture or dirt getting in. Also, itâ€™s best to avoid stacking stuff on top of your mattress so you donâ€™t end up with a lumpy, unusable one that needs replacing.
Clear plastic containers can be used for easy viewing retrieval. Clean, unused suitcases work great as well to save money on storage containers. For apparel that needs to maintain its original shape put it on hangers in wardrobe boxes. Storing clothes in plastic or vinyl bags is not recommended as they promote mildew growth, discoloration, and odors. If space permits, lie clothes flat when possible. Otherwise, rolling clothes maximizes space and helps prevent wrinkles.
