Make a Code
The first thing to do is to make a code for everything. You can use a variety of ways to do that. Codes can be plainly numeric, alphabetical or alphanumeric. You can also use the name of the category that you are placing the things under and add the count on the boxes. Make sure that the categories are clear and all the objects are in the right categories.

It is easy to put the boxes in the first spot available but it will give you a massive headache once you are removing them. Make areas for each category and make sure that you put the boxes in the right areas. By designating areas, you will make sure that you can find the particular products in the given area and will not be going through boxes all over and disturbing the whole setting. This will also help in making maximum use of minimum space.

Make Inventory List
This is very important. Make a list of which things have been placed according to box. It’s a bit of extra work and will certainly slow the process down but it will give you the satisfaction later on when you can very easily find out which products are placed in which box. If you have say five boxes of clothing, you can know exactly which box contains your t-shirts and can access that box only instead of going through all five boxes.
