Vacuum Bags Are Your Best Friend
As the seasons change, so does our wardrobe. We regularly buy new clothes, but our wardrobes don’t get any bigger. How can we buy the new without getting rid of the old? Let me introduce to you the vacuum bag. Bulky items such as blankets and winter jackets take up the most space in our wardrobe, but when strategically placed inside vacuum bags, a thick winter jacket can suddenly becomes a thin plastic mat. You can easily place these items into storage units, or even under you bed!
Stacking is Good, but Only Up to a Certain Point
In Hong Kong, everything is arranged vertically to save space, from high-rise buildings, to the tall shelves inside residential homes. Sure this strategy is an efficient use of space, but it’s always good to keep in mind that stacking your belongings too high may be dangerous. It’s best to leave some space on the top of shelving for both safety and aesthetic reasons.
Sometimes You Just Need to Let Go
Everyone is guilty of being a hoarder sometimes. Remember that soymilk machine and waffle maker you bought ages ago? How about those golf clubs and tennis rackets you’ve only used once? Or let’s go way back, to your collection of McDonald’s Happy Meal toys from when you were younger. Although it may be hard to say goodbye to things from your past, sometimes we just have to let go. Keep your memories in mini storage units rather than scattered around your home to create more space and a more comfortable living environment.
