Step Into Our Container

We can hardly contain ourselves!

Cheryl recently moved into a tiny space sans storage.  It made us realize just how important storage solutions and containers are! There are thousands of options to streamline any space.  Here’s a few of our favorites:


Shelves and shelving units, including hanging desks and tables, are a must for small spaces.


As are baskets. Don’t be afraid to be a basket case! They’re always in style, blend with most décor, and can be vacuumed easily!  Store them on top of cupboards,under sinks, by couches (for magazines or miscellanea), in bathrooms, and on top of the fridge.    



See through/clear containers are great for storing food (choose glass containers for food – if possible), gift wrapping paraphernalia,crafts, shoes, bags, winter/summer clothing, and seasonal items. Visibility leads to use and diminishes the need to shop frequently). If transparent storage isn’t an option, label containers instead.  We like using photographs as labels (especially for shoes and hats).  



They’re especially helpful when storing items in a separate locker, attic, or basement. Cut back unnecessary and wasted time sifting through piles of stuff!!

Stackable storage boxes (of any material) work well for holding pictures, papers, books, and CDs (for those who still own them!)


Cubby storage is perfect for children and adults alike. It’s a great way to conserve space and stay organized by keeping things easily accessible.


Armoires, dressers, and other furniture style storage units work well for lack of closet/cupboard space.

Look at all those baskets!

Where to get ’em:

Large retail hardware/home/furniture stores

Ikea (of course)



IQ Living


Even Dollar Stores sell useful containers!

Contain yourself until next week…
