    Downsizing several times Ive learned to maximize all available storage options. In the kitchen maximize cupboard storage utilizing various storage bins baskets and elevating wire racks in all cabinets above and below countertops. You might consider using the backside of the cabinet door too. Purge the things you dont need or store other things that you don’t use often in another area of the house....like under the bed, garage or basement closet. Put you beds on risers and use low profile totes and spacebags under the beds. Switch out summer and winter wardrobes. Some people use storage Ottomans or trunks as coffetables to hide extra items as well. Lastly the beds with drawers below the mattress are options too.

    Start by making piles. Need constantly, need sometimes, need once a year, donate, and really should just be trashed.
    Are you in a house or apartment? Have a garage or basement?

    Place your desired items in rubbermaid type storage so that they can stack easily. Then filter your items by category into the bins and place them in your attic, crawl space, garage, etc.

    Most often the problem isn't having enough storage, it's having too much stuff to store! Declutter first. If you're storing stuff you never see or never use, you don't really need it.

    Use sturdy cardboard boxes. Measure and cut them so they will fit in various unused spaces such as under your bed. Place items you don't use often or off season clothing or shoes in them and slide beneath your bed. Even though their is sometimes even though there is only 3-5 inches between the floor and bottom of bed you can store a lot of items. I roll things up and place in the boxes and its amazing how much can be stored that way. Use cardboard boxes as "pull-out" drawers in your kitchen cabinets so you can access items usually stored in the back of the cabinets.
    Place like items in storage bins and label well. If you don't use or need to retrieve the items in the next 3-4 months, you likely could either sell them or give them to someone who will use them. Main thing is to place like items with like items so you know what you have. This prevents you from buying more of the same thing just because you can't find the item. Maybe even write an inventory list and reference where they items are stored. Good Luck! Once you get started, it can be rather fun and addictive.

    Beds are space hogs. Lots of room under them.
