Take advantage of all available space. Furniture with drawers can be used to store smaller items, while larger appliances make excellent storage for blankets, towels, and clothes.
Empty trash cans make excellent storage for shovels, hoes, rakes, etc. Stack extra cans inside each other.
Disassemble tables with removable legs to save space.
Sofas and love seats can be placed on end to help save floor space. Make sure to place a sofa on a protective cover first. Also, we recommend wrapping the cushions in plastic and placing them on top.
Cover stuffed furniture with cardboard or blankets to protect against dust.
Mattresses stored on their side need to be stood in a way so that they are kept straight. Over time they may tend to bend out of shape and become lumpy.
Do not store heavy or sharp objects on top of upholstered furniture.
No food or food items should be stored. If absolutely necessary, food should be sealed in a plastic zip lock bag and then placed within another plastic bag.
Lastly, always place a good quality lock, such as a cylinder lock, on your unit door.
