Sterilite Snap Lid Storage Container

One of the best ways to organize and de-clutter your home is to utilize stackable plastic storage containers, like the one pictured to the right. These containers are inexpensive, and can hole a bunch of stuff, ranging from old baby clothes to Christmas ornaments. Below, we will discuss ways to incorporate these storage bins into your home organization plan to eliminate clutter and messes.

Storage Containers 'Contain' Clutter

Bringing organization home from the store is literally as easy as finding and purchasing the right storage option. If you are like many people out there, clutter dominates your life. It can be difficult to juggle kids, jobs, hobbies, and home making. Keeping your home clean with all the other daily tasks most likely gets left to the end of the list, and more often than not, there just aren't enough hours in a day to accomplish them all.

This is where a storage option can really add organization to your life. Storage boxes are one such option. Plastic storage boxes can be purchased at almost any store. Even grocery stores will probably have an isle with them (albeit more expensive). Walmart has a large selection, and it is hard to beat their prices. These boxes are large, durable, and are stackable. The removable lids allow you to store empty bins without taking up a lot of space.

Different Colors And Sizes

Plastic storage containers come in many different colors and sizes, and can be found to fit any extra space you may have in your home. The beauty of the plastic storage box is that it allows you to customize how you organize your things. You can color code your boxes, with a certain color applying to a certain item or category of items. This works great in kids rooms and play rooms. They are easy to move and stack, yet durable and sturdy enough to fill with heavy objects. Clear boxes allow you to see what has been stored inside, saving you time.

The also come in several different sizes, ranging from small bins that fit in kitchen drawers all the way up to 50-60 gallon sizes. I find that it is important to stay within the same brand even when getting different sizes, and this will help stacking and storing of un-used boxes. But the sky is truly the limit on what you decide to do with your organization plan.


With all of your belongings stored away in plastic storage boxes, it will make it easier for you to run your household. This easy and almost fun way to organize your things will save you time, money, and frustration as you de-clutter your home.

      LOL! Without plastic totes, I'd have our home qualified for one of those Hoarders reality TV shows!
