I like to have lots of baskets and shelves so that’s what I mostly added to my closet as that helped me coral my shoes, bags and dozens of pairs of jeans.

As “custom” closet solutions go, these IKEA systems are pretty cheap too. You can add as much or as little as you need and completely tailor whether you have a small or large bedroom closet, or small or large budget!

Organize your drawers with dividers

Fold your clothes vertically to maximize drawer space

Think outside of the box for nightstands and bedside lighting

Utilize the space under your bed

Utilize the space behind your door

Add shelves to the walls – when you don’t have floor space, think vertical!

Use baskets

Install a closet organization System

DIY additional closet shelving

Use felt hangers

If you don’t have a closet, make one

Think outside the box

I’ve never had the luxury of having a huge bedroom and even now, despite the 2,800 sq. ft home we live in, our master bedroom is on the small side and definitely lacking in the organizational department.

Of course, just because your Storage room is small, doesn’t mean there isn’t plenty of space to utilize in order to get organized. Sometimes you have to get a little creative and even more so when you need to do it on a budget. If you’re starting from scratch with a bedroom makeover, definitely take all of these storage ideas into consideration, too!

1. You cannot enter any units or touch anything until you pay for it.

2. We charge a cash cleanout deposit (so come prepared) – refundable once the unit is empty.

Self Storage is synonyms with Storage Wars

Storage Wars on A&E
Big money can be made if you are willing to take the risk!

You’re not going to believe some of the biggest payouts in Storage Wars history. There have been some tremendous hits on what seemed like junk but turned out to be an incredible find! Storage Wars always seemed like a gamble but when you find out the value of some of these collections all locked up, you’ll understand why people take such chances on what often looks like junk. And before you go screaming Storage Wars is fake, or Storage Wars is staged, or Nobody watches Storage Wars, when you see the values here you might just become a believer.

Darrell Sheets was known as the gambler on Storage Wars – always taking a shot at something for a big payday. Sheets hit the bigtime when he discovered original paintings by surrealist Frank Gutierrez in a storage container that he picked up for $3600. That might have seemed steep at the time, but it turned out that the Gutierrez originals were worth a whopping $300,000. Good thing Darrell found it and not Barry Weiss – Barry never sells anything!

Darrell also scored a major hit when in season 5 he came across what seemed to be a storage unit full of toys. But it turned out that they weren’t just any toys – it was vintage toys still in their containers and a load of comic books. All told, the unit contained over 3000 comic books and enough collectible classics to be worth over $60,000. That’s a lot of loot for some toys!

Options for Storage + Solutions

when and If you need to store some, or all of your belongings when moving, consider the following when choosing the best storage situation.

You will first need to determine whether you need short term or long term storage and which items will be stored. This will help figure out which size storage unit to rent. Before making any final decisions, research all your storage options and find out about:

Access – What are the hours of operation?

Price – What are the fees? Will the fee change if you store your items for longer than originally planned? Are there any additional, or hidden fees?

Cleanliness – Are the storage units and premises clean? If your items will be stored for a long period of time, you want to ensure your items leave the storage in the same condition they went into storage.

Security – Does the storage facility provide onsite security? Is there a fire system? Is it protected from flooding?

Storage options

Many moving companies can also provide storage when moving your belongings. They are not like a self-storage facility, so if regular access to your belongings is important, renting a self-storage unit is a better option. For long-term storage, containers are convenient.

Insurance is advised when items are being stored, and is often required. Check what you will need to make sure your items are insured!
