Tips for Storing Everything
Put baskets under furniture
Use up the valuable space under beds, tables, and other furniture. You can roll or slide storage units into space and out of sight.
Fit shelves wherever you can
Don’t leave your walls empty when you are short of storage space elsewhere. Choose shelves that are both functional and act as decoration.
Label all your storage boxes
Mark your storage containers so that you know exactly what they contain. This is even more important for those things you don’t need often.
Color coordinate your storage
Color coordinate storage units to make them more attractive and practical. Color coding logically will make it easy to find things.
Use awkward spaces wisely
Create storage spaces behind doors or under stairs. Every home has these awkward spots that need a creative approach.

Tissue Box Turned Storage Bins

If you are anything like me you don't just have one junk drawer... you have one too many! I know there are a lot of solutions out there to help you get organized, but why not repurpose something you have on hand to help clean the clutter. If you have some empty tissue boxes lying around this quick and easy storage solution is perfect for you! Just a little glue and fabric and these aren't simply helpful, but cute too!

Crate Storage With a New Spin

I am always looking for inexpensive ways to create storage in my kids' rooms. I originally made this storage unit for my daughter but used boy-friendly colors, on the off chance that she doesn't want it. Turns out she wants it, but wants it painted fuchsia. One of the comments below from Snuttall1947 was brilliant! She is making one of these for her bathroom. Imagine what a great space to store towels and bath products vertically. Just wanted to share, in case you miss this in the comments. So many great comments on where to use this: craft rooms, closets, pantries, pool areas, garages, laundry rooms and mudrooms... I hope I didn't forget any... Possibilities are endless...
