  • Creating an Organized Inventory: While going through your things it’s helpful to create an inventory based on functionality and frequency of use. Group your possessions into categories like essentials, seasonal items, sentimental belongings, and those you plan to donate or dispose of. This inventory will be useful, in optimizing space efficiency during the home improvement process.
