I don’t know about you, but there is something so nice about having your home organized. Finding solutions for your clutter situation can be tricky and costly, however, today I am sharing 5 different “real-life” organization tips I use these awesome Protect and Store Storage boxes to get my home in order. These boxes are sturdy, clear for easy viewing of contents, and they come in a few sizes which work great for a variety of different needs.
#1. The first way I used these boxes was for my craft storage. They come in several different sizes (12 x 12, 5 x 7, 8.5 x 11, and even offer a 12 x 12 tray insert). These are great to house all those craft gadgets and supplies that seem to hide in my craft room. Plus, I love that they are clear because I can see exactly what is in them, no need for labeling (unless you want to.) These boxes also stack which works great with the bookshelves I use in my craft area. I am finally conquering all that craft clutter!
#2. The second way, and perhaps one of my favorite organization tips for using these boxes is for toy storage. I’ve finally found a functional and inexpensive way to conquer all those LEGO sets! Not only are these great for LEGO’s, but they really work well for any of those toys that come with tons of pieces, clothes, or accessories that need to be kept together and intact.
#3. Did you know these work great for organizing and keeping track of your make-up and brushes? I found myself always digging through a basket of make-up and could never quite find what I was looking for. These easily stackable boxes are clear and I know exactly where to find different eyeshadows, lipsticks, and liners. Plus, I like using the 5 x 7 box for my brushes so they aren’t getting dirty or bent.
#4. This is kind of a random tip but these boxes work great for diaper bags or travel storage. If you have ever had a punctured fruit cup or pudding snack in your bag then you know exactly why I love these! These boxes are not intended for food storage, so use them for prepackaged items only. No more punctured fruit cups, smashed crackers, or scattered fruit snacks! I simply grab these on the way out the door, throw in the snacks, put it in my bag and am good to go. The food is protected, my bag is protected, and I am not hunting for a lid because the lids to these storage boxes are attached.
#5. Kid’s art supplies can be corralled into these great boxes too. While we keep a lot of the crafting supplies in the craft room, we like to keep a few things handy in the kitchen for when I’m cooking and the kids want to color or paint. These boxes were great to house those coloring books, markers, crayons, and more!
