The start of the New Year is the perfect time to get your house in order so you can begin 2019 as you mean to go on! Get to grips with the clutter in your home with our space-saving tips.

Trawl through the toys

If you’ve got kids, chances are they’ll have received a mountain of new gifts this Christmas that are now strewn all over the living room floor. Now’s the perfect time to have a good sift through all their old toys and get rid of ones they don’t use any more. Donate any unwanted toys to your local charity shop so you know they’ll go to a good home.

If the kids simply can’t bear to get rid of their toys, we’ve got plenty of clever child-friendly, stylish and practical storage solutions to keep them tidy.

Forgotten storage spaces

Have a good scout around the home for any unused spaces that you could use for storage. Maybe you could make use of the space under the stairs by adding a few shelves? Or could you put the space under your bed to good use? We sell a fantastic range of stackable storage  as well as underbed storage boxes designed to fit perfectly under your bed – out of sight out of mind!

Make use of that empty corner where the Christmas tree once was by investing in some space-saving storage. We love these stylish ladder shelves for instant organisation of everything from books and games to DVDs and photo frames.

Organise your wardrobe

Vacuum storage is a great solution for saving on space. Bulky items such as duvets, pillows and bedding take up loads of space in cupboards but will shrink down to a quarter of their size with these clever storage bags, leaving you with more room to store your essentials.

When the guests finally leave after the festivities, get all your extra bedding stored away to bring back some normality. It’s also the best time of year to get organising your own wardrobe space. Have a good sort out and promise to recycle anything you’ve not worn at least once in the last year. Local charity shops will certainly be grateful for your donations and are often sending out bin bags to be filled at this time of year.

To get your wardrobe shipshape once you’ve had a clear out, we love this shoe organiser and outfit organiser to keep everything in its proper place! And if you don’t have much wardrobe space, our secondary rail will come in handy with fully adjustable cords for doubling up your space.
