At the moment, no we don't. We have moved from a large house to a medium size house and so have packed out the garage with surplus furniture and "stuff" and still have some in storage elsewhere! We are hoping to buy a bigger house in the spring and then we will have enough storage space in the home again. It is very frustrating!
The only tip I have is to be very organised and to make the most of the height of rooms, so put things in baskets on top of cupboards and wardrobes. Also be ruthless with weeding out stuff you don't need or haven't used in a long time....
I try to be ruthless with stuff like that, I really do, but there's some stuff with which I just can't bear to part with because I think it'll come in handy one day. Of course that day never comes around unless I've thrown it out!
No I don't.
I have only ever had one house that did.
It had a wonderful floor to ceiling built-in wardrobe in the hallway.It was along one wall, but because they chose really really nice wooden sliding doors, it looked just fab!
Oh yes, I just moved into this new apartment and there is not even enough space to keep my daily wear clothes. I purchased the hanging closet organizer from Ikea to help with it. Not to mention, I am still running out of space and I keep trying to find new ideas to use the space efficiently. I also plan to use small organizing baskets or shelf divider for the same. I am yet to figure out my kitchen though. Guess I will just not stock up a lot.
Technically there's probably enough space but we aren't using it as efficiently as possible. We could use a few more shelves and some boxes to divide up the top of wardrobes better so things aren't just shoved in there in a big pile.
And sometimes the shelves are too high making them useless. They are so small in my case, that my suitcases won't fit there as well. But I agree with you, using boxes and dividers does help. And for a short person like me, I definitely need to keep a step ladder handy !
Yes I probably could have VEE but as am in the last stages of life, I thought I would spare my children a lot of work -they do not seem to care that the ones I have left are worth a lot! I can see a big blue bin outside my place when I die and I will turn in my grave!!!!
I don't know if this is planning too far in advance, but why don't you find somebody who would appreciate some of the stuff you've got in terms of collector's items and leave it to them when you die. Saves you 'rolling in your grave'.
Oh! Vee, thank you, yes, mid year I'll look around for a place, more suitable to my needs.
If I can't find exactly what I want, I'll stay as is, due security grilles on ALL openings, top to ground, so I feel very safe.
Have an excellent 'watch-cat' in my rescued Siamese, who howls like a banshee if there's the slightest 'oddity' in the house surrounds! Lol!
