Simple Storage Container Solutions

Welcome to 'Day 25' in the month long series of articles cataloging
 Simple Organizing Solutions!  

If you've been reading from the beginning, you've hopefully already, 1) Gotten the right mindset and motivation needed to get organized.  2) Zeroed in on one small area to focus your efforts.  3) Have begun narrowing down your belongings to what what you love, use and actually have the room to store. and 4) Considered how to cut clutter at the source by giving each item a specific 'home' stored in groups of like items (5) & set a maintenance plan in motion. 

Once you've narrowed down your possessions, you will likely need to contain some of it before placing it in it's assigned home on a shelf, or in a cabinet/closet. 
Take care to not purchase containers before the purging & identification of what you actually have room to store!  In fact, I would encourage you to use what you have around the house for clever containment solutions before spending any money. 

If you do choose to purchase containers, you can find many affordable options at reasonably priced retailers like wal-mart, target, home improvement stores, and even dollar stores like pictured below:

Don't let lack of funds for purchasing products halt your organizing products...

Don't just throw items into containers mindlessly, either.  Store like items with like items for ease in locating things when you need/want them.


Consider purchasing containers in one uniform size if they will be stored in one space together or on one shelving unit to maximize storage space and enable ability to stack if needed:
