Over time, your stuff piles up. Things in the junk drawer become harder to sift through, and things in the spare room become more difficult to keep track of. It’s called clutter, and the same thing can happen in storage units if you don’t keep a good inventory. Storage Choice in Cedar Hill, TX doesn’t want you to deal with the frustration of a cluttered unit. We’re here with tips on how to keep track of your items.

How to Create a Self Storage Inventory List

Start with categorizing everything.

If you’re new to self storage, it pays to write down your items as soon as you place them in the unit. As a long-term renter, you’ll need to go through everything and write down your items by type, room, or another category. Creating a map of the storage unit’s layout will also help you find things easier later.

Take a visual snapshot.

While you’re categorizing everything, compile important information such as receipts and financial documents. You should also take pictures of various items to keep track of their condition. Store all the important information in one place to make it easier to find just in case you ever need to file an insurance claim.

Manage everything in a spreadsheet.

Writing down and categorizing every item on paper is a time-consuming process. In addition, a paper list is susceptible to physical harm. By creating everything digitally in a spreadsheet, you can store it online or as a file on your computer. It’ll always be there when you need it, and you won’t have to worry about damage to the list.
