Is your stockpile taking over your home? Are you running out of places to store it and as a result, it is becoming quite the mess? If so, you need a stockpile intervention, or at least some helpful organizing ideas for your stockpile. Below, you will find five organizing ideas to help you with your stockpile. Take a look and see how easy it is!
5 Organizing Ideas for Your Stockpile:
1. Buy Totes.
Buy the large plastic totes with lids from your local retail store. They are just a few bucks and are great because they are water proof. They are also great at keeping critters out since they have the tight lids. Store your dry goods and toiletries in these bins for easy and safe storage.
2. Gather baskets.
Baskets are decorative and a great way to keep your items organized. Keep toiletries in a basket and tucked away in your bathroom. Or, keep your spices all in one place.
3. Make labels.
Labels can make all of the difference when keeping your stockpile in check. Makes super simple labels on index cards or masking tape. Then, just apply the labels so you know where to place new items as they come in the door.
4. Get the family in on the action.
Show your organization methods to your family so they can help put items away and keep them organized. When you make it a team effort, it is sure to be easier.
5. Use every spare inch.
Got an empty hallway closet? Use it! Got an empty kitchen drawer? Use it! Got a little space under your bed? Use it! Use every inch you have, keep it labeled and properly stored, and you will have a collection of product your friends will envy!
Give these tips a try and see how you too can get your stockpile organized in a way that is functional and frugal for you!
