I’m kind of a plastic storage container addict. I usually buy them a dozen at a time and, believe it or not, there is not one empty container to be found in this house. I’m going to have to buy some more. My brand of choice is Sterilite. I also found that some of Target’s containers are made by Sterilite. They are the same thing, and have the name on the container. They come in all sizes. I have two, three and four-drawer units. These are great for office and sewing supplies. I also have many 6-quart, 16-quart and 66-quart sizes. They are clear and most of them have white lids and the larger ones have latches. The small ones have lids that snap closed. One thing I love about these containers is that they have indented tops so that they stack nicely on top of another.
My son must have at least 20 of them with his Legos, Star Wars, Picachu cards, clay, you name it, whatever he collects he puts in these storage containers. They are stacked in the garage, his closet and also under his bed. He’s almost 20 now and still has most of them. He’s a pack rat, too, what can I say. Wonder who he takes after. 🙂
Then, for my office I have containers for paper, file folders, envelopes, office supplies, etc. I use them to store batteries, light bulbs, hooks and picture hangers. Everything is so much easier to manage when I keep things in containers.
I use them for everything. They’re great for seasonal items. I buy the see-through containers so they’re easy to find. I take advantage of sales during the holidays because I could always find containers with green or red lids for Christmas, orange lids for Halloween. My husband has rearranged the garage so many times, so it helps when searching for things. I use them for Christmas, Easter, Fourth of July, and Halloween decorations. They’re great for linen napkins, placemats and table cloths. I store our Winter clothing, such as sweaters, hats and gloves. There are so many storage containers, we don’t even have enough room in our garage to park the car!
These are great for Halloween decorations, costumes, and other Fall accessories.
It measures 25.5″L x 17.5″W x 15.5″H.
I have several of these. They are great for holiday lights, decorations and ornaments. It measures 24-1/2″L x 17-3/4″W x 13-3/8″H.
This is also a good size for storing larger items.
It measures 24-1/2″L x 17-3/4″W x 13-1/4″H.
This is the perfect size to store your Winter sweaters, and a whole lote more. I also use these containers for my household files, such as bank statements, tax returns, bills, mortgage information, automobile records, user manuals, etc.
It measures 16-5/8″ x 11-3/4″ x 7″.
This is a perfect size for shoes and other smaller household items. This is the size my son uses for his card collections, lego pieces, school supplies, etc.
It measures 13-1/2″ x 8-1/4″ x 4-3/4″.
This is a great under-the-bed organizer. However, make sure you have enough clearance under your bed frame. My king-size bed has a very low frame and this doesn’t fit. It does fit under my other beds with higher frames.
This is great for storing clothes, shoes, decorations, and rolls of gift wrapping paper.
It measures 39-5/8″L x 20-1/4″W x 7″H.
I use these for printer paper and stationery. It’s a perfect size for letter size paper (8-1/2″ x 11″).
It measures 13.2 x 11 x 9.5 inches.
This one is perfect for legal size paper (8-1/2″ x 14″).
It measures 14.5″W x 14.25″L x 10.25″H.
The multi-drawer towers are great for office, craft and hobby areas, as they provide a combination of smaller and larger drawers ideal for sorting different sized items. Casters are included with all drawer carts to create rolling storage options.
It measures 14-1/2″L x 12-5/8″W x 39-1/2″H. The 4 small drawers are 3-1/8″H the 3 large drawers are 7″H.
This is great for pens and pencils or small craft items. The drawers are small and not big enough to fit letter size paper. I don’t think casters are included with this one.
The drawers measure 6-1/2″W x 7-1/2″L x 2″H.
I have two of these. I keep office supplies in one and sewing supplies in the other. I especially like the fact that it has two small drawers and two deeper drawers for storing different sized items. These drawers will fit 8-1/2″ x 11″ letter size paper.
It measures 12-5/8″W x 14-1/2″L x 24″H. With the casters it is 25 1/2″H. The top two drawers are: 13″L x 10 1/4″W x 3″H. The bottom two drawers are: 13″L x 10-1/4″W x 7″H.
This doesn’t even touch on kitchen or closet organizers. That’s another story. 🙂
