A suggestion from Real Simple is to use clear boxes for storing children's art and craft supplies. Real Coake suggests upgrading plastic storage cases with designs and markers to create colorful pet food containers that keep the food safe from pests and keep food bags off your floors.
Use plastic storage containers in your refrigerator to organize snacks, individual juice and milk boxes, or fresh fruits and vegetables. Plastic storage cases hold reusable containers and lids to keep them separate, and they are easy to use for meal planning or storing leftovers. They can also store plastic wrap, foil, and parchment paper or keep knives and other kitchen tools picked up and away from small children.
Use plastic containers in linen closets to organize sheets, pillowcases, towels and bath clothes. This allows the items to be sorted by bed size, theme or holiday if you have special towels and sheet sets. Children's rooms benefit from plastic storage box organization by keeping building blocks and smaller toy parts off the floor and away from feet and vacuum cleaners.
The Family Handyman suggests using a combination of storage containers and shelving to organize tools, rope, power cables and outdoor supplies. You can also build overhead storage bin holders to use the ceiling of your garage as well.
