Storage Tips

  1. Plan your storage space; place those items that you may need to access often in front. Allow for walkways.
  2. Make up an inventory of your stored items and keep in safe place at home.
  3. Place your stored items on 2x4 boards or pallets to guard against dampness.
  4. Stack lighter boxes on top and use bubble wrap for dishes, glasses and mirrors.
  5. Furniture with drawers can be utilized as storage places for pictures, nick knacks, china and small items.
  6. Tables having removable legs should be broken down to save space.
