An important aspect of using a self-storage unit productively is knowing exactly what you have in it. Many would shudder at the idea of taking an inventory of the items in your storage unit, but these days it’s a snap. Smartphones make it easy to take pictures of your stored items, and apps like Evernote help you keep everything nice and organized.
- Take a picture of each item or group of items.
- Give the photo an easily identifiable name.
- Include tags to help easily find the item when you need it, such as: storage, holiday, furniture, dining, etc.
- Add notes to remind you of more details such as where the item is located within your storage unit, when you put the item into storage, when you pulled it out of storage, etc.
That’s it! Now you have all the items in your storage rental at your fingertips at any given time. Happy organizing!
