    Command hooks and their various products work great. A lot of things can be hung on the wall in the bathroom and free up cabinet space. Hats and necklaces work well on these hooks and can be put in other unusable spaces and add to your decor. At first they may appear expensive, but will prove to be worth it when you need to move them. Cube cabinets are great and can also be placed on their sides to act as room dividers and shelves. The collapsible cubes come in a large variety of colors nowadays and hold a lot yet are easy to move. Depending on your home, the shelves may sit well behind a couch and at the entry. Utilize the space under your bed. Don't hold on to any furniture that is bulky yet doesn't store anything. End tables aren't needed if you use floor lamps. There are a lot of organizing items that will fit over a room door or cupboard such as towel racks, belt racks, hat racks, spice racks, and narrow shelving. An expanding pole can be placed high over the shower area and used to hang items to dry. Baskets are very decorative, can be placed almost anywhere, and will hold a large variety of items. Also, decorated boxes will work well. Get rid of uni-taskers (anything that does only one thing). Rethink the machines in your kitchen. How often do you use them? Do you REALLY need an electric can opener on your counter or will a good hand can opener do the trick as well. Don't bring anything into your home that you don't already have a place for. Get rid of your "abundance." Nobody needs 12 blankets.

    there are storage benches used for out side patios....less expensive than foot lockers, and hold a lot. If you would have come to this house a month or so a go...you would have needed 12 blankets to sleep comfortably......

    I always loved trunks for extra storage. They function as coffee tables but you can pack stuff inside. Under the bed strorage is easy.

    Clear plastic bins.
