Storage Idea

If you are like me, you always have a bunch on Huggies diaper wipe containers lying around. I hate to throw away anything that could be used for storage (since being organized sometimes costs a small fortune)! My hubby started using them for his "shop" in the garage, for nuts and bolts (so really the credit goes to him!) and odds and ends that you don't want to get rid of, but no place to put it.

One of Bob's storage containers.

Perfectly stores nail and screws...just pop them through the slot on top.

One of my storage containers...labeled on the outside.

It holds large glue bottles as well as glue sticks.

The slot on top makes it easy for the children to put them away...even the little ones.
If you are a stickler for a uniformed look...using all one color, such as white, will help it look more together and not so miss matched. I used this container for the children's school closet. It can get VERY messy and putting the little things away just helps that much more with keeping a somewhat organized school closet.



  1. Love it! I use these for small toy "sets", etc. and also have one for used batteries to be turned in to hazardous waste collection later. We use the slot on top for the batteries too! :)

    1. Great minds think alike! Hadn't thought of the batteries....good idea!


Would love to hear from you!
