    • 1. Plan your storage space. Place items you need to access often near the front and allow for walkways.

    • 2. Make an inventory of your stored items and keep it in a safe place.

    • 9. Use furniture with drawers to store small items such as photos, nick- knacks, and china. Wrap breakable items in towels, or blankets.
