My husband and I are complete opposites. While I’m extremely organized, my spouse isn’t. He regularly scatters important documents such as credit card statements, car insurance bills, and pay stubs around our home. Because I worry about losing important papers, I’m constantly developing smart storage solutions for our documents. I keep some of our papers in a safe. I keep other items in a handy storage folder complete with tabs. I’ve labeled some of the tabs with the types of mail my husband and I receive regularly such as bills, retirement information, healthcare documentation, and sales papers. Another great option for storing mountains of paperwork is a rented storage unit. By housing important documentation in this type of storage facility, you can keep it out of your home. On this blog, I hope you will discover some ingenious ways to store your pertinent documents.
If you own a stylish boutique and have decided to move into a larger building, due to the fact that you are running out of space in the current location that you lease, the following storage tips will help you organize and keep track of inventory that is temporarily stored in a rental unit at a facility like Park Lanes Storage.
Group Items By Size And Use Garment Bags That Are Hung From Racks
Separate all of the clothing items by size that will be stored in the unit. Group items together that are worn during a particular season, as well. Place all of the items on hangers before sealing them inside of garment bags. Hang the bags from portable clothing racks that have casters secured to the bottom of them. Clothing will remain protected from humidity and won't become wrinkled while it is stored. When you are ready to move items to the new location, push the carts across the floor and up a ramp that is attached to a moving van.
Place Accessories In Bins With Compartments
Place accessories, such as hand bags, belts, and jewelry in large bins that have built-in compartments. Place a lid on each bin to prevent the items from spilling out while they are being transported. Label the outside of the bin with a brief list of what is stored inside of it, including the quantity of each item.
If you need to locate a specific piece of merchandise prior to moving to the new building, you will be able to put your hands on it quickly. Once you transport the items to the new building, setting up your boutique won't be difficult because all of the small items that you are selling will already be separated by type.
Use A Master List And Labeling System
Write down a list of all of the items that are stored in bags and bins, including a detailed description of each type of merchandise. Use color-coded labels to identify specific items inside of the storage bags and containers. Create a key on the bottom of the list that corresponds to the labels.
The labeling system will make it easy for you to find items without needing to open up bags or read the original labels that are placed on the outside of the bins. It will also help you stay on top of what has been placed in storage when you are unable to stop by the rental unit in order to view its contents.
