How do I get the most out of storage in my small bedroom?
According to Andrea Gary, the professional organizer and original "Queen of Kerfuffle," it's all about little tools that lighten the load. "If using a dresser, the best way to organize the drawers is to implement dividers and to file and fold," she says. "Dividers can be purchased in bamboo, clear, or white plastic."
As for footwear, Gary takes a similar approach: "Off-season shoes can be stored in clear containers on a high shelf in your closet," she explains. "This way they are not taking up primary space, but are easy to see and can be retrieved if need be off-season."
Elsewhere, tinier items need a home, too. "Taking jewelry items out of the small boxes and bags they come in and organizing them in a drawer insert makes it all accessible and easy to find," says Gary. Her recommendation? The Container Store, naturally.
Of course, these are smaller steps and should be combined with considered furniture options, like those listed in the article — especially if closets or drawer chests are out of your price bracket or already bursting at the seams.
