How to Properly Store All Your Clothes and Shoes

Having a lot of clothes can be a challenge with the limited space that you have, and if you have a knack for buying clothes, it can be an even bigger challenge that can leave your closet bursting full if you’re not careful.

However, sorting your clothes and shoes and staying organized doesn’t have to be difficult – in fact, there are only a few guidelines that you need to follow at all times when deciding where to put clothes:

  • Use all available space – Even if you think you’re already using every inch in your closet, there’s a good chance that there’s still room for more. For instance, hanger beams and spaces in between columns of folded clothes can still be utilized to take on more items better.
  • Keep clothes where you can see them – The biggest reason for this is that the more you see your clothes, the more likely you’re going to wear them. In fact, there’s a good chance that many items that you end up having to get rid of because they’re pushed to the back.

Hanging vs. Folding Clothes

When it comes to the question of which clothes to hang and which clothes to fold, keep in mind that there are certain clothes that are better off folded rather than hung, such as knitted clothes and sweaters, which would only develop hanger bumps.

Otherwise, most clothes can be folded and stored in neat piles that you can assign in different shelves in your cabinet.

Shoes and Bags

Shoes and bags are another category that needs paying attention to, but they’re actually much simpler to organize.

With shoes, you can easily store them at the bottom of your closet, but make sure not to store them in their original shoeboxes to keep them from attracting mold, dust, and even unwanted pests.

Bags can be stored in the upper storage shelf of your closet. If you’re worried about them being flattened over time, simply stuff them with tissue or newspaper and they will stay in shape.

Keeping vs. Donating

Knowing which clothes to keep and which ones to donate can be difficult if you have sentimental value for your things, but you might notice that this is usually reserved for the things you really enjoy and use often.

If you find that a particular clothing item no longer fits you and is something you don’t wear anymore, but is still in good condition, then you should donate them.

Now that you know the steps to sort your closet, organizing doesn’t have to be so difficult, so go ahead and start doing it right now!

Choosing the Best Paper Shredder for Home Use

 

Having kids and working from home is a recipe for disaster. You can expect disorganized clutter to be the house’s main theme and design. Most of the time you can expect to find some paper here, there and everywhere. A piece of colored drawing by the kids, some scratch papers lying on the floor, a draft misplaced paper on the couch, and maybe some stacks of paper you planned to organize last week.

Choose the Type of Shredder for Your Desired Level of Security

There are different types of shredder that provide different levels of security so you should know which one is just right for you and your family. The three most common types of shredders are Stripped-Cut Shredders, Cross-Cut Shredders, and Micro-cut Shredders. They offer security levels from the least to the highest accordingly. Micro-cut Shredders are used in many Singaporean government offices and in big companies due to its high level of security. However, the mid-level Cross-Cut Shredder may already be good enough for you and your family.

Choose the Home Shredder with the Right Capacity

Check how much capacity the shredding machine claims. Most of the time the purported capacity is exaggerated – the real capacity is often only half as much! Is the home shredder good for only one person or is it good for up to five people? How much volume will you be shredding on a regular basis?

Choose the Home Shredder with Safety Measures

This should probably be your number one priority if you’re living with kids or when you have pets at home. Kids can be so curious you’ll never know what they can think of doing next. On the other hand, pets can also be unfortunate victims of accidents as they move around unknowingly. So better get a home shredder with just the right safety measures – you never know!

Choose the Home Shredder with the Right Waste Removal

You’ll find that there are two styles of waste removal in home shredders. The first style is called the “drawer” style because, as the name suggests, you have to pull a drawer when you want to throw your paper waste into the trash bin. The second style is called “lift-off” because you’ll have to lift off the shredder which is on top of the trash bin if you want to throw your paper waste or empty the basket. The first style is what’s most recommended as it’s more convenient to use. You need only use one hand in pulling the drawer, throwing the waste, and even in emptying the trash bin. It’s also the one that causes the least mess while doing the work.
