Choosing the Right Storage Container
Choosing the right storage container can make all the difference in your ability to organize your home. Here are some of our favorite options.
Plastic Storage Bins
Plastic storage bins can be useful for bigger items like clothes for a different season, household goods, and holiday decorations. The best part about plastic storage bins is that they come in a lot of sizes and keep out dirt and critters, but the shapes are limited. There are a lot of different options, but finding the right plastic storage bin or tub can help you start getting things back on track.
Baskets and Fabric Bins
For the home and office, baskets and fabric bins can handle two jobs with one container. Not only can they help keep smaller items, such as office supplies, small kitchen gadgets, or snacks organized, they can also add some decor touches to the space. Fabric bins come in a variety of colors and prints, and baskets can also come in different sizes, shapes, and designs.
Acrylic Storage Drawers
Acrylic storage drawers are great for organizing and labeling things – because you can see right into the containers! Whether you are organizing bathroom supplies, file folders with important mail and paperwork, or any kind of art/craft supply, acrylic bins and drawers are a great choice. The number of drawers is flexible, they’re often stackable, and can not only help organize but similar to fabric bins and baskets, add an element of decor to a room.
Small Organization Solutions
If you have things inside drawers that need organizing, consider a pre-made drawer organizer or something like a SKUBB box. There tools can take a drawer from a complete mess where you have no idea what’s in the drawer, to an easy to glance and see drawer! For larger drawers with different writing utensils you can also consider a silverware organizer to keep pens, pencils, paint brushes, and more organized.
When it comes to organizing paper, there can be a lot of options depending on your goal. We talked about photo boxes to help organize your memories. Similarly, shoe boxes make for great holders of like items such as a year’s worth of financial information or bills that need to be kept together. You may also consider a wall mounted paper organizer, or a desk top organizer that allows you to label and hold different sized paper. They also make smaller plastic and acrylic drawers that can be used on a desk or bookshelf to hold important paperwork.
When it comes to choosing the right storage container, it all depends on what you are storing. There are so many different options to explore.
