I'd add shelves, cupboards and stuff to the storage spaces which already exist, because stuff is on the floor and stacked a little bit, but the full 3D space isn't fully utilised in a lot of places. This would mean the societies who already have storage space would still be able to store all their stuff, but would store it more efficiently. Once term ends and I start my roll, I'd like to have a look at the storage spaces of societies which already exist and just check if any of the objects have gathered dust. This implies that the society probably doesn't use the item and I'd offer to donate it to a charity shop or something. EG:in one of my society's storage spaces, I found a box of used coffee cups which had been gathered and used in an anti-plastic demonstration before I'd joined, which definitely didn't need to be stored. Possibly continued once-a-month check to see if things haven't moved to suggest those too. I'd make moving things a voluntary choice
If we wanted to create more storage space, the SUSU meeting rooms are underutilised, so we could potentially convert one of those into more storage space. However, I'm hesitant to take radical action and convert somewhere into more storage because that would permanently mean that space couldn't be used any more and would only help several of our 300+ societies.
