To quote the late-great George Carlin, ‘A house is just a place to keep your stuff – while you go out and get more stuff.’ We at My Local Broker think a home is a bit more than that, but at its core, that is what we use a house for. So what do we do when we have too much stuff and not enough space, but we aren’t quite ready for a bigger home? These storage ideas will help.
Use a pipe or a rod as a rack in a small corner. This is a great way to use the space you have without taking up valuable floor space with excess furniture.

Bonus tip: you can do the same thing with heeled shoes in your closet.
