7 Storage Tricks You've Probably Never Thought Of

Photographed by Erica Gannett.
If it were up to Marie Kondo, we would probably get rid of most of our things. But since we plan to keep at least some stuff, we decided to get smart about how we organize them. Whether you live in a tiny house, a city apartment, or even a home with a boatload of space, we’re betting you could use some pointers, too.
We spoke with four organization experts and asked them to share their favorite storage hacks with us. The results were creative and fun — and the best part is that these improvements are all either inexpensive, or totally free.
Check out all their tips ahead, and start dreaming about all the new things you can buy once you've made more space. (Sorry, Marie!)
