It’s time to start organizing and getting your home cleaned up for Spring!
There are lots of ways to hold the items you plan to keep – dressers, boxes, and bins, to name a few. But what’s the best bin for the job when you’re storing items until they’re needed again?
Small Plastic Bins
If what you need to organize is small, look for clear plastic bins with lids on them. For example, these Sterlite Small Flip-Top Storage Boxes are perfect for this. They’re a great size for storing first-aid supplies, craft items, CDs, Legos, etc.
Not only will your items be organized, the lids will keep them from coming out if the box falls and will stop them from becoming dusty, as well.
Wall-Mounted Storage Bins
Wall-mounted storage bins like this storage cubbie is perfect for getting all those odds and ends off the floor. These are great the entryway, kitchen or mud room. You can store items in a cute basket or color-coded bins.
Multiple Storage Bins
Multiple storage bins come in handy for organizing craft materials. Scrapbooking, kids arts & crafts supplies, beading supplies, and other crafts can all be kept in bins. You can buy a bins specifically made for crafts, but these tend to be expensive. Instead, you can opt for cheaper bins that work just as well.
Larger Bins and Totes
Large storage bins and totes are a life saver for storing out-of-season clothes and unused toys. You may want to label the bins so you have an idea of what is in each one. Get a storage shelf with open areas to organize and store smaller toys such as building blocks, cars, or doll’s clothes.
Kitchen Storage Containers
You can also use these kitchen plastic storage containers with lids to store different varieties of noodles so you can quickly find the right type for cooking. Use open storage bins like these silver mesh cabinet baskets to help organize the shelves in your kitchen cabinets to keep smaller boxes, spices, and flavorings together.
Storage Drawer Organizers
Storage drawer organizers can be used in virtually every area of your home for organizing. These organizers can used in the office or in your bathroom to keep your medicine chest in order. They can even be used in the garage to help keep small items like nuts, bolts, screws, and nails handy and organized.
If you want to get your home organized, bins can be a great way to accomplish this. With spring cleaning season almost underway, you are sure to find a variety of storage bins at discount stores, dollar stores, as well as in home improvement stores and on the internet.
