Organizing and Home Storage Hacks
Since we all are spending more time at home, many of us are decluttering our closets. Some may even be using the Marie Kondo method of decluttering their homes by category and not location. Using this method of decluttering makes it easier for one to clean out the items they cannot use or do not want anymore.
Organizing your belongings with repurposed retail packaging items like reusable tote bags, pouches, or custom gift boxes can keep your things arranged by style, color, or however you like without worry. This will also give your packaging items a second life.
Organizing Your Belongings
First, using gift boxes for home storage can easily organize cosmetics, brushes, and even pieces of jewelry or accessories. These types of gift boxes can fit perfectly in drawers, closets, desks, or cabinets while giving your cosmetics or jewelry collections a safe, dry and trendy home.
Next, large size boxes are also great to organize all of your gift wrap and crafting supplies. Easy to put together and store, these boxes can hold any assortment of ribbons, giftwrap or miscellaneous supplies; whether they are a rigid folding box or a two piece box. When it comes time to wrap a gift, you can easily sort through your supplies and find what you need.
Considering two piece boxes are always handy to have around the house; no matter the branding, they can also be used to organize paperwork or a junk drawer. Simply set up the two piece box in a common area and put all your essential items in the box. To keep it organized, occasionally sort through the box, and when guests arrive, pop on the lid for easy home storage. The custom graphics and unique treatment on the boxes will add a nice touch to your space while consolidating your belongings.
Similar to boxes, pouches are also a great item to have when storing jewelry or cosmetics. Although, the construction and materials may be different, pouches can come in any size or construction to accommodate the product inside. Pouches can also have different closures like fold over, or zipper to ensure your stored items are safe and secure.
Home Storage With Tote Bags
No matter the size, boxes and pouches are great to have to store your items and paperwork, cosmetics, or jewelry. On the other hand, tote bags can help you store and organize larger items like seasonal clothing, hats or larger accessories.
One popular type of storage bag is the Ikea style shopping bag. Many companies are creating their reusable shopping bags out of the same material and construction inspired by Ikea because of its versatility. The popular style of tote bag can be reused multiple times as a shopping bag, retail warehouse bag, and finally, a bag for home storage.
Most importantly, the bag’s construction lets you comfortably hold any amount of product for home storage. The extra large storage capacity as well as the strong shoulder straps and carrying handles make the bag easy to move and increase the tote bag’s durability. With these two types of handles, you can fill the bag to capacity without the worry of the material tearing. Considering the bag is so durable, this makes it the perfect item to safely store your belongings. You can even turn your reusable bags into a DIY storage bin by cutting off the handles and folding the top portion of the bag down.
Now is such a great time to declutter and clean out unwanted things. Imagining your ideal clutter-free lifestyle is easy when you organize with reusable shopping bags, boxes of any shape or size or pouches. When cleaning out the clutter, it’s best to recognize what you need most during this time.
