I’m Not Sure Where To Put This”: Space Saving Tips For People Moving To Brooklyn

You found a trusted moving and storage company to help you move to Brooklyn. Nice work. Now it’s time to get packing and get everything moved into your apartment. Simply Moving is a company that believes in making the moving process less stressful for you. We also know that during the move, some problems may arise. One prime example is the old “where should this go” problem. Sometimes, you’ll need to determine if something is worth moving into the house or if it needs to go into storage.

Saving space is important. You want a home that is a lot less cluttered and easy to move around in. Of course, Simply Moving is no ordinary moving company. We offer storage solutions so you can store those things that take up too much room. But if you’re really smart, you can find creative ways to find a home for all your items.

Here are a few space saving tips you can take to heart while moving everything you can into your new Brooklyn home:

  • Add Shelves Above The Doorway: Shelves don’t always have to touch the ground. If you have small shelves that you can attach to the wall, consider the space above your doorway. Just be sure to keep them dust free every now and then.
  • Glass Jars…Not Just For Food: You’ve used the last of the strawberry jelly. Now to throw it away in the trash, right? Well, not so fast. Think about it for a moment: you have pens and pencils laying around. Why not use a glass jar as a designated pen or pencil holder? Should you put it to good use, make sure to thoroughly clean it both inside and out. You don’t want things to get a little sticky, do you?
  • Use Extra Drawers: This might be a little TMI…but are you a bathroom reader? You don’t have to answer that question out loud. But you can answer it by storing books in empty or unused bathroom counter drawers. If you have extra drawer space, use it however you want as long as you keep it organized.
  • Wall Attachments: Need a creative way to store your bike? Need a place to know where your dog’s leash is? Install some sturdy hooks so you can hang them with the greatest of ease. It’s not unusual for people to hang their bikes on a wall.
  • Put It Into Storage: Sometimes, there’s just no way to store it anywhere in your home. But not to worry, Simply Moving has safe, affordable storage spaces that you can use anytime you wish.


It’s never easy to figure out where some things go while moving to Brooklyn. That’s why Simply Moving helps you make the moving process to reduce the guesswork of “where do I put this”. If it comes down to not finding a good place for something, you can always store it in one of our storage units. For more information on what our storage services, contact Simply Moving today.

    We couldn’t be happier with our recent move with Simply Moving.

    Their prices were affordable, in fact, a lot cheaper than the quotes we got from the other movers we had called in the NYC area.

    On the day of the move, the crew arrived early, and were fast, diligent, organized, and professional. All our furniture …

    I had a truly 5 star experience – they were on time, gave me a call an hour before arriving, packed everything neatly and efficiently and placed all items in my new place perfectly. Did the job as promised!

    “Simply Moving- It was our pleasure to move you, the crew said you were well prepared and did a good job with the destination layout and instructions”

    Great group of MOVERS.

    The movers arrived 15 minutes ahead of schedule, when it was cold and rainy. I wasn’t able to pack everything since my mother had passed away a few days before my move. They made me feel safe and helped pack things gently and quickly. They were patient and very positive and compassionate. They were too notch. Highly recommend their services.

    Dear Stefan, I want to tell the public how wonderful your company has treated me. Has stored my possessions and has delivered everything with the utmost of care. Thank you will all my heart for the service you gave me and the protection you provided for all my things these years. If I had to rate your company I would give you a ten…!

    P.S. when I got the delivery we thought there was an antique shelf missing but I found that behind some boxes after the truck left…So I have it all and am filled with joy…
