Three additional Home Storage options were added in the Free Version 2.0 Update coming November 5th, for a total maximum storage capacity of 5,000.

After updating your game to Version 1.6, go to Resident Services then approach and talk to Tom Nook.
If you already upgraded your house to its maximum size and paid off all your loans, Tom Nook will tell you that he's now offering an Expanded Home Storage upgrade.
Talk to Tom Nook and select "About My Home". A new option called "Expand my storage" will be available to discuss.
Pay 500,000 Bells to expand the storage. Unlike other home upgrades, Tom Nook can't offer a loan for the expansion. You need to pay for the storage upgrade upfront!
As with all house upgrades, Tom Nook requires the whole day to work on the expansion. The next day, your house's maximum storage capacity will increase to 2,400!
The only requirement to use the Storage feature is to upgrade your tent to a house. You'll need to pay the initial loan of 5,000 Miles to upgrade to a House, so be sure to get started on paying off your loan right away.
How to Get Nook Miles Fast
Select an item from your pockets and choose
Put in Storage.
You can put almost any item in storage, excluding whole trees and flower plants.
Press the Right Arrow button on the D-Pad to open up the storage. The items are sorted by categories which you can cycle through using the L and R buttons.
Selecting the item allows you to put it back in your pockets, or placing the item inside your home when using Decorating Mode.
You can also view the number of items you have, and the max storage size on the lower left part of the strorage screen.
The Storage Shed is a piece of furniture which can be redeemed for Nook Miles, and serves the purpose of allowing players to access their storage from outside of their home.
The Storage Shed can be placed almost anywhere on the player's island, and connects directly to the player's storage. This allows players to both put objects in storage and take out objects from storage anywhere on the island where a Storage Shed is placed.
As dropping items on the ground decreases your island rating, a Storage Shed is a great investment to easily store and retrieve items without damaging your island.
Create a second character to use their house as secondary storage. Usie Party Play to switch between players to access each players' storage!
If there are items that you cannot put in your storage like trees and flower plants, you can use trash cans to throw out items.
Several items can't be put in storage, and you'll need to use other ways to get them out of your pockets like dropping them on the ground or throwing them out in a trash can.
