Collect, Sort and Store Household Items

By Sonia Presotto

Do you ever have the feeling that your house is just one big storage facility? And items that should be together are stored in multiple places? Like that time your daughter asked you for a paint mixing pallete. You were pretty certain one existed but couldn’t find it, and then ended up buying another. A couple of days later, you find two in another part of the house. Now you have three! Follow these helpful steps that will save you time and money in the long run so you can buy the items you actually need.

COLLECT

Take the time to identify what is in all your drawers and cupboards, closets and storage rooms. Collect like items from various sources in your household and gather them together in one spot. Discard any broken items and donate any items you no longer use.

SORT

If you can sort like items together it will help when it comes to finding storage options for them later. For example, all art supplies could be gathered together. Other piles can be made for stationary, games, recipes, batteries, first aid supplies, elastic bands, hair accessories, shoe care items, sewing tools and so much more. If you have more then one of these items, you need to group them together. It will amaze you how many pens you actually have! Or the number of used sun screen bottles kicking around that either have expired or haven’t expired so you can save money by not having to buy more for this summer or that trip you were planning.

STORE

Once you have collected and identify unique piles for all your items, you will have a better understanding of the type of storage options that are available to you. For example, storing art supplies may need a multiple shelf unit or cube system to set up in a designated closet or room. Shoe care items can easily be stored in a plastic container with lid and tucked nicely in the laundry room for easy access. If you have collected a variety of sun screen throughout the year, conveniently store them in a plastic container in the bathroom. I like to sort my stationary in a plastic storage tower with multiple drawers. You could put envelopes in one drawer, labels in another … pens, paperclips and other stationary items stored away nicely and conveniently in accessible drawers. Batteries can be stored all in one spot and be sure to designate a container for used batteries so you can dispose of them properly. The environment will thank you.
