Could it be I have too much "stuff".
Since we downsized last year it has been a challenge to find spots for everything.
Closets at a premium.
I have collections and seasonal items to store.
We do have a big basement.
Some time ago off I went on a search for storage ideas.
Found at Walmart some inexpensive stands , 5 shelves high.
Bought 6, they fill one long wall in the basement.
But the organizing just never quite got done properly.
The past wintry Sunday was spent organizing these shelves.
Room for my Dickens Collection
Christmas items , some of the fabric items are in plastic bags with a Clingfree dryer cloth to keep dust off and smelling fresh.
Glass ornaments in plastic bins to protect them.
Christmas lights,hanging over old wire hangers, twist ties keep them together and I put 2 strings on each hanger.
Great hint from Cityline , their home day show ,
take freshly washed Christmas linens put into a plastic bag, pack a febreeze candle in , insert the candle into a smaller open plastic bag to keep fabrics fresh until next Christmas season.
Linens ready to encase in plastic
Sealed and on shelff
Plastic covered wreaths
Appliances and baking pans
Some shelves still need plastic sheets to help keep dust of everything.
No,the basement still does not look like a Martha Stewart basement but it is better than it was.
What do you do with your basement space?
