In real estate, location is everything. True too in organizing.
Prime real estate is your next level of valuable space: You need access to these items on a weekly basis so if you have to stack, put primary use items on top. Make sure you can easily see, grab, use these books, tools and clothes. Think:
• eye-level shelving
• top desk drawers
• easy-to-reach sections of your closet
Out of sight or remote locations may require effort. These categories are less frequently or even rarely accessed and might include previous years’ taxes in basement file cabinets and off-season clothing in attic bins or guest room closets. Camp duffles and holiday decorations fit this category.
