When beginning an organizing project it is important to think outside of the box. Don't be afraid to give new life to storage items you might not typically choose for projects. Here are a few examples:
-Fishing tackle boxes are great for craft supplies and batteries. They are lightweight and durable.
-Plastic dish pans are the perfect size for most standard bookshelves and can hold a variety of items. Plus, they are extremely inexpensive. These also can function as a drawer in a pantry.
-Dresser drawers often fit well under beds and stairwells to take advantage of awkward or unused storage space.
-The durable plastic bags in which comforters and blankets are sold make great soft-sided storage for anything from holiday décor to seasonal clothes.
Remember, pause before you buy a new storage box. Instead, try to bring new life to your current household items.
