Luggage, carry-ons and duffle bags…
Whether you are a frequent traveller or a once in a blue moon vacationer, over the years you will surely have more luggage and bags at your home than you actually need. While the old ones could be disposed of, most hard luggage stays sturdy and useful for long when maintained properly.
However, with a houseful of stuff from basic furniture to that ornate bedside table you found in the thrift shop, storing your big luggage is going to be a bit of trouble in the long run. So in this blog, we offer you some useful luggage storage tips that will help keep them out of your way till you need them.
Storage Under Your Bed
This is easily one of the best places to stow away your luggage. If your bed is high enough, it will have a one to two feet of dead space which will be more than perfect to slide in your carry on or duffle bag. By storing your bags within a larger trash bag, they will also stay dust free and clean under the bed.
Play Russian Nesting Dolls
As the name suggests, think about storing your smaller bags within the larger suitcase for easy storage. However, if you are a frequent traveller, this might not be a good idea. If you need to retrieve a smaller bag that you tucked away into the heart of the suitcase, it will be quite a task to unpack the bags to find the one you are looking for.
Convert To Self Storage
Are you someone who vacations once in a year? Do you have an awful lot of beach dresses or leather parkas that would not see the daylight for another 365 days? In that case, convert your big suitcases into self-storage units within your home to store away those dresses and accessories you don’t need till the next vacay.
You can also store away things like your college textbooks and other things that lie around the house like the old letters, toys, photo albums and tool kits. Explore all your options.
Hide Away In High Shelves
Most wardrobes and closets will have some dead space at the top which can be utilized for storage. Install a sturdy shelf in this space with enough space to store your luggage. If the shelf is strong enough to take some weight, pack your suitcases like Russian dolls or self-storage. You get the idea.
Store Away From Home
If your home lacks enough space to fit in all your suitcases, carry-ons and duffles, or if you are not a frequent traveller, then the perfect solution to your predicament is to store your luggage away from home.
