Categorise Your Items Before Choosing Storage Containers1. Identify belongings for deep storageThese are items that you likely won’t use but can’t part with, such as sentimental clothes, old books or photos, wedding mementos or childhood memorabilia. Because these items won’t be accessed regularly and may be of great sentimental value to you, store them in containers that will keep them safe. Sometimes a plastic lidded tub will do, and at other times an acid-free box is called for. Do some research to find out the proper way to store the pieces that mean a lot to you.

How to get rid of clothes moths1. Identify your insectsIn addition to clothes moths, carpet beetles also feed on fabric, so your first step should be confirming what type of infestation you have. It’s a good idea to get a specimen from your home identified if you can – make sure you don’t squash your moth as that will make it hard to identify. Try to catch it in a container and put it in the freezer, then call a local pest control professional.Things We Can Learn From These Dream Wardrobes
Most of us have several different types of footwear to store, including everyday shoes we might wear to the shops or office, sneakers or running shoes for workouts, boots for cold weather and heels or special-occasional footwear.The most common mistake people make is to squash all these different types of shoes together at the bottom of the wardrobe or jumbled inside a large box. Not only does this create an unwelcoming pile of clutter, but it can scuff footwear and make it lose its shape. Plus it can make finding a matching pair tricky.Store shoes well and they’ll last longer (and be much easier to find). If you’re short on wardrobe space, it’s better to cull your collection and store only your most valued shoes properly here. You can then leave less expensive, everyday pairs in a box near the hallway or somewhere that’s easily accessible.

Folding vs hanging Decide what to hang and what to fold, West says: “Hang bulky coats and jackets, as well as dresses, skirts, dress pants and shirts so they don’t crease.” T-shirts and jumpers are best folded and placed on shelves and inside drawers, she says. “This will help them keep their shape as they’re likely to stretch if hung. You can also fold thick pants such as jeans as they won’t crease.”
