Organizing plastic containers can be a daunting task, but it doesn't have to be. With the right systems and tools, you can easily store and organize your plastic containers in a way that maximizes space and keeps your home neat and tidy. A wall-mounted file cabinet is a great way to store plastic containers outside the office. Hang one inside a cabinet door and fill it with various food storage container lids that are often difficult to find.
This will ensure that there is always a lid within reach and that small lids never disappear into the depths of a disorganized closet. As a general rule, it is best to keep the lids with their corresponding containers. Organize the containers to fit your space, placing the larger ones first and arranging the smaller ones around them. Group and stack related containers as much as possible. Small cabinet shelves are great for maximizing vertical space, while baskets that hold containers and cabinet lids are especially easy for children to move.
Transparent containers with lockable lids are ideal for storing clothes, and you can store them in the attic, basement, or garage until it's time to switch up your closet when the seasons change. Make sure not to keep the plastic near objects that are too hot, such as an oven or stove. Stack the corresponding food storage containers and lids together in ready-made compartments. You can use accessory boxes to store scarves, gloves, hats, thick jewelry and hosiery, but these boxes can also hold other small items. Sets that are stacked or grouped together, collections with lids that can be mixed and containers that can be stored flat help you maximize your space. Plastic containers are great for storing and organizing special or off-season garments, such as Halloween costumes or fluffy winter sweaters.
Because these items tend to be heavy, use sturdy plastic containers to store garden tools, sports equipment, or cleaning supplies. The deep plastic storage boxes ensure that you don't have to pile sweaters or coats on top of each other to fit them all in, and the plastic construction will protect the fabric from dust and moisture.
