TIPS FOR ORGANIZING YOUR ATTIC
As you go through your attic clearing out the clutter, have three
at hand -- "keep," "get rid of," and "not sure."
Ask yourself if each item you pick up is "beautiful, useful, or loved" -- if not,
are you hanging onto it it?
As you clean out, separate out items that need to be
or returned -- or are missing a vital piece to be operable again.
If you have given away, repaired, recycled, or sold everything that is salvageable, donít feel guilty about
Use clear, square (or rectangular),
storage containers when you can -- they stack easier and you can easily see what is stored in a box with just a glance.
Itís better to divide your space up by installing additional
or using old furniture for storage rather than stack too many containers on top of each other.
Be careful about storing
, bulky, or hard-to-handle items on high shelves -- unless you are looking for a concussion!
in mind -- donít store things where they will be damaged by heat, cold, moisture, or insects -- or take precautions to protect your belongings.
