I like to get boxes and put everything in categorized boxes. Then, I'd put the boxes in the closet (all about .5 inches away from each other; never touching) and label them with a THICK BLACK SHARPIE. Nothing else can label them. Make sure all the boxes are straight, or else it'll just be a feeble attempt. If you don't have enough room, go ahead and store some of those boxes under your bed too. Make sure they are also labeled nicely and have a conservative distance between them. But if you plan on using the items in those boxes often, you might want to find an easier accessed area to put them in. BUT ALWAYS. HAVE. THE. .5 INCH. SPACE.
