I just love the fact that my husband and I can be in our den or the kitchen at the same time and both have access to our home-goods storage. It’s so convenient.
Unfortunately, many home-goods storage systems are not set up to work with multi-function shelving. That means we have to haul everything out to the garage to hang it up in the right spot. Not only that but the price of storage is generally a lot higher than it is in the home.
For me, the biggest problem with this is the fact that I am not a professional organizer. If I had the time and money to store my home-goods in a proper storage unit, I would. However, I’m a realist, and I know that I can’t afford to hire someone to do it for me and I would prefer to do it myself, just so I could have more storage space.
I am also a realist in that I can see the value in home goods storage, but I also have an issue with all the things that are not really worth more than a few bucks.
Storage units are a very expensive way to store your home-goods. The big advantage they have over your typical open shelving is that they come with a built-in door. The downside is that they only come with a single door, and they are not as organized as a proper storage unit. I also worry that they might get stolen, and if you are not careful with them, they can easily be damaged or knocked over.
I think it’s true that “storage units” have a very high cost. But the good news is that the good things about them make them almost ideal for everyday use. They are cheap, and they come in sets. You could even use the same set of shelves for a closet, and then stack some of the clothes on top of each other (like you would with a cabinet).
This is so true. I was talking to my girlfriend last week about just how much she loved having her room organized. And she said something about how she liked to organize her books by color. I told her that I liked to organize my book collection by color as well, and while I don’t have a closet with shelves, I was glad to hear that she liked to organize her books by color.
The shelves are like a wall of books. So we can put books on shelves like we would with a cabinet or cupboard. This allows the books to be arranged in a way that is a bit more interesting.
You can put books on shelves that are not as tall as a cabinet (or cupboard), but you can still organize them by color. I think this is one of the best uses of shelves I’ve ever seen.
The shelves we have are not that tall, but they do make the books more interesting by giving them a bit more dimension.
