Creating More Household Storage

If you don't have a lot of spare storage in your house, then you may need to make your own extra storage. Luckily, there are some crafty ways that you can go about creating more storage around your house so you don't even realize that your house is lacking in this department. Follow the tips in this article to add more storage space to your household.

Add shelves in your closets

If you have closets in the bedrooms that simply have shelf space along the top and a rod for hangers, you can add more shelves so you can have a lot more room for things like boxes and other containers or items. You can purchase shelving units you can simply install with the use of screws and an electric drill, or you can purchase your own wood and build your own if you are mechanically inclined.

Use baby food jars to keep small items out of the way and together

Baby food jars can be great with regards to storing small items such as paper clips, nails, spare change, tacks, or anything else that can fit in them. You can poke a hole in the lids of the jars and then screw the lids to the bottom of any one of your kitchen cabinets. Now, you will be able to put whatever you want in the jars and twist them on to the lids to close the jars and put them in place. These jars can fit nicely in that extra left over space you tend to have in some of your kitchen cabinets.

Use file holders to create extra space throughout your home

You can take file holders (the ones that are about 4 inches wide) and use them to create a lot of storage in your house. You can put a couple of them in your freezer to create extra shelving to help separate more of your frozen goods. You can set one of these file holders next to your toilet and use it to hold your toilet paper rolls so you don't have to fit them in your bathroom cabinets. You can also use a drill and a couple of screws to attach one of these file holders sideways next to your favorite easy chair to create a small shelf for your drink, your remote control, your book, and anything else small that you want to keep beside you.
