Whew. You're on the home stretch and have sorted, purged and decided where all your items will finally land. What's next is the easy part--storing and stowing. We took some pictures of containers we use at home for ideas to check out after the jump.
As you processed all of your belongings, some containers probably came out of the woodwork. When we organize clients, they initially believe two things. The first is that they don't have enough storage space and the second is that they don't have enough containers to store their items. But honestly, once you start going through your items you'll notice that you end up with empty containers (lots of them). It's also important to think outside of the box and use everyday items and re-purpose them for storage needs. A unique mug from your travels might be a fun way to spruce up your office (and remind you of good times). Most of the pictures below are taken from our space to give you ideas and starting points. Not all containers and storage systems work the same for everyone. That's why we love organizing--it's definitely not one size fits all.
