Organizing Techniques for Your Storage Unit


October 28th, 2019

It can be tempting to start throwing everything in random boxes during the moving process. Depending on how long it takes you to pack, it can be both physically and emotionally draining. However, if you take the time to organize your items thoroughly, you will thank yourself later. Your new home is just waiting to be decorated and personalized to your family’s style, and the sooner everything is unpacked, the better. In today’s blog, Marina View Storage gives you some options on how you should organize items to make the whole process easier.

Label Everything

Individual moving boxes, whether they are cardboard or plastic, can easily be misplaced in the move. As you pack, it may seem easier to have a hodgepodge of items in each box. However, if you only keep specific things in each box, it will make for a simple transition from place to place. You can label boxes accordingly when you keep similar items each box. It is up to you how you label them! Sometimes it is easier to label them by which room they belong in. Sometimes it is easier to label them by the person they belong to. No matter how you decide to label your storage boxes, just make sure you do it!

Color Coordination

Organizing anything by color is one of the easiest ways to remember the importance of each box. This organizational technique could include different colored paper taped to boxes, markers to write on the outside, or even different colored plastic containers. No matter which way you decide to incorporate colors into your packing, it will help keep everything neatly organized.

Storage Box Sizes

An easy, visual indicator to help with organization is organizing by box size. While you are packing, load things you will not need for a while into larger boxes. Save the smaller boxes for items that will be accessed more frequently. The smaller storage boxes make it easier for you to find items rather than digging through a large bin.
