There’s nothing like the feeling of decluttering your space, but while sorting things out gives its own sense of achievement, finding the perfect storage solutions for all your closets and cabinets is a part of the process that's also fulfilling.

We connected with Rachel Lim, owner of storage boutique KIT – Keeping It Together, to ask for a few organizing tips, as well as for the best storage solutions for all your abubot and kutkutin.

Real Living: What does one have to consider first before decluttering?

Rachelle Lim: Before decluttering, you need to consider the space and the categories [of your items to keep]. Be more intentional where should things go. Keep storage space in mind before starting your decluttering project. 

RL: How does one decide which things to keep, repurpose, donate or let go off?

Rachelle: Group [your things] into categories and you will see that storing them will be much more efficient. You may group them by importance, value, usability, theme, colors, and so forth. Find the most efficient system that works for you.

Personally, for organizing closets, we separate the old and unfitted ones, those that are currently being used, and [those] for future use. Then we subcategorize and sort according by size, colors, formal, pambahay, and sports. For items that we don’t use anymore, we check if [they can be handed down to] siblings or cousins. If not, we give them to charity.

RL: What makes a good storage solution?

Rachelle: First, the price has to reasonable because in organizing, you will need to buy a minimum of six  pieces to a dozen storage items. Next, the quality should last for years to come. Storage solutions don’t have to be complicated. It's better to go for a transparent type of material for visibility and clean aesthetics.

RL: How does one mix and match containers while still blending with the overall look of a space?

Rachelle: We can mix and match clear or white containers [to keep things neutral]. Make sure that all space is clear of clutter and all containers be arranged either for piling up or side by side. Put labels on your containers as much as possible.
