Organization tips

Living Room:

  • Add storage under a coffee table for magazines, remotes, and coaster and keep the top of your coffee table clutter free.
  • Through magazines away as soon as you are finished reading them. Like an article? Take a picture and store it electronically.
  • Make a habit out of coming home and immediately putting your items in their homes.


  • Night stands and dressers should only have the items needed for your morning rituals.
  • Add cubbies, boxes, or a storage ottoman at the foot of the bed for a creative way to store belongings out of sight.
  • This is the time to make edits to your wardrobe. Donate anything not worn in 3-6 months.
  • Whether you store your belongings in the basement, attic, or under your bed make sure to clearly label everything.


  • Get rid of old papers at least once a month to cycle out old bills and junk files.
  • Searching for important paperwork? Color code your documents for easy finding.
  • At the end of everyday reorganize your space. Put items back in their homes and start the next day refreshed and ready to go!

Remember our self storage units in Wilmington NC can be the ideal answer to getting and keeping your home clean.
