Keep these tips in mind:

Create an inventory.

Keep track of your things by creating an inventory of items that you will store in the attic. This will help you sort the items as well as locate pieces that you might need in the future. 

RL Tip: Create categories such as: family keepsakes, Christmas ornaments, old furniture, and so on.

Utilize storage bins.

Don’t just dump your unused stuff in your attic. Utilize storage boxes to segregate your materials by its usage.

RL Tip: Use clear plastic containers so that you can easily see what’s inside the boxes.

Add open shelves.

Maximize your attic’s space by adding open shelves. By doing this, you get to store objects in different sizes, which won’t make your space look cluttered.

Schedule a time for cleaning.

It’s advisable to have a fixed time for decluttering your attic. Schedule a once-a-month spring cleaning so you won’t feel overwhelmed.

Don’t be a hoarder! Ask yourself, “Do I really need this?” If you can reuse your old items in the near future then keep it. But if not, don’t waste your space by filling it with unnecessary items.

RL Tip: Hold a garage sale in your home! Who knows? Maybe your trash can be someone’s treasure.
