  • Get clean boxes from the grocery stores and use them to organize and label things.Put what is not being used away in closets, the attic or basement or under beds. Better still donate or sell what your not going to need or use again to save on storage space.

  • I have a ton of stuff in bags and labeled for when my DD grows into them. I also have some space bags they work very well.

  • I really love these boxes from IKEA- they are pretty and functional, and CHEAP! They come in all sizes so you dont have to have a ton of "big" boxes but whats nice about them is they are attractive to look at so even if you do have a few big ones they wont bother you.

  • oh- I also really love space bags but they are expensive... Walmart has ones that dont use the vacuum, you actually put the clothes in and then roll them to squeeze the air out, and they are MUCH cheaper, much much much cheaper. lol . They are in the laundry basket/hanger section of walmart.. kinda by the kitchen stuff.. and I use those any time we are traveling or storing off-season clothing.
