If you ever want to learn how to maximize space, watch the movers load a moving truck. They stack everything up to the top and leave no space unused. The most unproductive use of space is to place everything on the floor or on a table. You can end up coving a large area with stuff, wasting all the space above it. These shelves are functional, well-built, strong, and easy to assemble. And the more you place them along the walls and fill to the top, the less floorspace you will use, and the easier it will be to locate what you need.
In order to even better utilize your space, we strongly recommend purchasing clear plastic storage totes. It’s a good practice to label what is inside your totes, but clear totes are one step up. You can see what’s inside without even opening it.
