The One Organization Tool I Use in Every Room of My Home

8 Jul

My favorite and most-used organization tool around my home is a clear plastic shoe box. They are available at big box stores and dollar stores. The ones I purchase are branded by the Container Store.  You can find them here.

Here’s why I like this particular line-up:

  • BPA free (important for food storage)
  • Relatively inexpensive (especially by the case and during sales)
  • Consistent sizing
  • Readily available in-store and on-line
  • Seem to fit spaces exactly!
  • Easily stackable
  • Especially handy to prevent liquids from spilling where they shouldn’t
  • Easy to clean by hand or in the dishwasher
  • And most importantly, I can see what’s inside!

The 3 sizes I probably use the most are: men’s shoe box, small accessory box, and the regular sweater box. I keep a small stash of these on-hand for quick access when I get a sudden urge to re-organize a closet or pantry (insert Hubby’s deep sigh and shoulder shrug here).

Here are some action pics Around My Home –
