One of the most important things to consider when you find, or build, your dream home, is that you have enough storage space for all your treasures.
I've never understood why people buy a home suitable for a large family - well, a three or four bedroom house or something, and once kids are gone, just sell it and move into something smaller. No, no. Think of all that space! Turn one room into an office, another into your own private library, and one into a game room with a model train set set up permanently or something of that nature.
If there's a garage, garages more often than not are always messy, with things stacked higgedly piggedly. But there are ways to solve this problem, by purchasing appropriate types of storage containers.
Storage tubes are great if you've got lots of metal rods - for example from past window curtains, that one day you'll use again, or if you've got lots of posters that you want to put up once every couple of years, for example.
Pac Rite Inc. offers shipping tubes and storage tubes of all sizes, for those awkward things that you don't know where to put, and don't want to lose!
