1. Measure First

Before you go on a shopping spree, grab that trusty measuring tape. It’s time to become a measuring pro! Taking accurate measurements of your space ensures that you find the right storage solution that fits like a glove. Measure the height, width, and depth of your closets, cabinets, shelves—basically any spot where you want to add some organising magic!

2. Be Creative and Search the Entire Store

Who said you have to stick to the same old aisles? It’s time to get adventurous and explore every nook and cranny of the shop. You never know what amazing goodies you might stumble upon in unexpected places. Need something for your kitchen? Check out the bathroom or laundry section. Let your imagination run wild!

3. Buy a Variety of Sizes and Types

When it comes to storage products, let’s talk variety! It’s like having a box of chocolates—different sizes for different needs. Smaller storage containers are perfect for those itty-bitty items, while medium-sized ones are your go-to for everyday essentials. And don’t forget about the big guns! Large containers are your heroes for bulkier items or stuff you need quick access to. Mix and match like a pro!

We love buying in bulk and then we return those that are not used or needed. This makes organisation process easy, quicker, and smooth as you have a collection of different types and sizes of storage products that you can quickly mix and match to organise your space efficiently.

4. Consider Your Preferences and Routine

Containers or Open Tubs, You Decide! Think of your personal preferences and organisational habits when choosing between options for maximum functionality. For example, if you enjoy compartmentalising and categorising items, then containers with dividers and lids may be your best bet. But hey, if you’re more about easy access and a relaxed approach, open tubs or baskets offer convenience and a more relaxed approach.

5. Create a Budget

We totally get it, there are so many options and great items to choose from, but organising your home doesn’t have to break the bank! Before you let loose on that shopping spree, set a budget that fits your financial game plan. It’ll keep you on track and help you make savvy choices. Remember, it’s not just about finding the best deals—it’s about investing in quality items that’ll stand the test of time.
