Harold Taylor’s, Taylor Time Newsletter June 2015 gave this great advise on storage space. I hope you enjoy it.
If you have more drawer space in your dressers and cabinets then you need, the number of items stored there will increase to fill the space available (Parkinson’s Law).
When you sort through your belongings and donate or scrap the sweaters, blouses, scarves and other clothing items you never use, re-purpose the drawer for those non-clothing items that are causing your closets and other storage areas to overflow. You are re-purposing when you use closet hangar space to hang a shoe holder to free up floor space, or when you remove bottom shelves of a linen closet to store your golf clubs, or use a kitchen drawer to house your toolkit. Don’t feel that you have to use all storage areas for the purpose they were originally intended.
