Floor area may, and should, be dedicated to items you require access to frequently; trash cans, your washer and drier (with shelves overhead!) Along with your extra freezer or fridge. (Can you really need that extra freezer?
Make the programs become reality. Put the shelving upsystem, the pegboard, the storage items which can make it feasible to have neat organization for those things that you have opted to keep. Strategy to utilize plastic bins, that come in all sizes, to keep perishables (like items like cloth, or crafts) or harmful substances out of reach.

After a year, then go through the bins, and in case you haven’t obtained them for a calendar year, now is the time to drop!
Define each region, in order that like matters are saved with like! Keep tools collectively, pet supplies, sports gear etc., in one accessible location.
