1. One box size for all items (if possible)

Place heavier items and infrequent access boxes on the bottom or at the back so that you won’t have to rearrange or pull off a bunch of boxes to access the ones you need.

2. Label, label, label

Instead of playing a gigantic guessing game of “what’s in this box”. As much as you think you’ll know what what’s inside each box – life gets in the way and your brain fills with other more important things. Be as detailed as possible or better yet use a QR sticker and app system like this one from Inabox Solutions.

3. Don’t be afraid to repack

If you just kind of threw in the last items at the end to get the job done then revisit your storage unit again to reorganise those boxes. Your future self will thank you!
