Is getting your home more organized one of your goals for the New Year? Storage boxes and bins are a great way to get organized. No dobut you’ve heard of Rubbermaid, Sterlite, and Space Saver but they aren’t your only options, check online for other storage options. Storage boxes come in just about any shape and size you could possibly imagine or need. Most storage units come with lids but not all your needs will require lids so decide what your needs are before you shop for storage.
Organize your music collection in wall hanging storage units especially made for holding CDs. Organize your CDs by music genre or alphabetically by artist so it will be easy to locate whichever CD you are looking for.
If you will be storing small items, try clear plastic bins with lids thus providing a means for keeping them all together especially if the bin happens to get knocked over. Perhaps you have a beading hobby, storing and stacking all of your beads and small items in similar style bins will keep your items organized and look neat and tidy. Storage can be found for all hobby type items such as scrapbooking, knitting, art supplies and craft items.
Organize out of season items. For items you won’t be using again till say winter comes around or perhaps spring or summer, storage bins or bags are a great way to keep these items out of your way yet organized until you need them again. Labeling the bins “winter clothes”, “summer clothes”, etc. will make locating the items you are looking for much easier. You can make your labels as general or as specific as you like as to its contents.
For storing items in a basement or attic, bins with lids are your best option as they will keep water and bugs away from your stored items.
Large storage boxes and bin can be used as a toy box or boxes for your child’s toys. Labeling them by color or writing the names of the items such as “stuffed toys”, “cars”, or “blocks” can help your child help keep their rooms neat, tidy and organized.
Containers can also be helpful in organizing your kitchen pantry, or spice cabinet. I like to keep our cereals in clear containers the kids can open easily and they can also see at a glace which cereal they want and which ones we are running low on. You can use them to store all sorts of foods such as flour, sugar or a variety of noodles. Not only will it make your pantry more organized it will also help keep your food items fresh.
