Here's a simple system of shelving:
- Put the least used or seasonal items on the topmost shelves (Christmas lights and decors, woolen blankets, etc.) nearest to the ceiling.
- Locate the most frequently used items on the shelves at torso level for easy physical and visual access.
- Place the heaviest items on the bottom shelves or on the floor.
- For heavy items that can be stored flat (like folding tables and chairs), stash them in the floor space under your shelves or sandwich them upright in the little gap between your shelving system and the wall.
