Since I know that many of you share my love of storage containers, I thought I would share a list of my favorite types and how I use them in case you have any upcoming organization projects in the works! In no particular order, here are the types of storage bins I use most often:


1. Baskets


I love baskets because they come in so many different shapes and sizes and can add warmth and texture to a room while keeping things neat and tidy. We use baskets in several places in our home, including in my office to store craft supplies…

2. Fabric Bins


I use fabric bins all the time, particularly in our “cubed” storage units. I love that they come in tons of different colors and are big enough to hold a lot of small items, but small enough to keep an area from getting cluttered. I often will add an adhesive bookplate to the front of my fabric bins so I can insert a label and clearly see what is in each one.

3. Plastic Drawers


I once saw plastic drawers on a list of “items you should never use to organize,” and I totally disagree! I love them! Unlike plastic tubs that you have to unstack every time you want to use their contents, drawers are easily accessible when stacked and are perfect for organizing hand-me-downs or items under the sink. Since they often have a clear front, they are also easy to label, which is always a plus!

4. Pantry Bins


When we were first married, Donnie and I bought a bunch of inexpensive pantry bins from Wal-Mart, and they have been used for many, many purposes in the 10 years since (and they’re still going strong after a decade)! They’re white, so they can fit in just about anywhere, and they’re also stackable, so we can easily organize vertically. We’ve used these bins to hold shoes, toys in the garage, workout equipment, supplies under the bathroom sink, and we’ve even actually used them for pantry storage!

5. Fabric Totes


I love fabric totes because they’re so pretty and come in tons of patterns and colors! They’re also open at the top, making them easily accessible without having to mess with taking lids off and putting them back on. We currently use large fabric totes to hold sweaters and purses in our master bedroom closet.

6. Plastic Tubs


I know I just sang the praises of plastic drawers over tubs, but we certainly use our fair share of the tubs around here too! When we need to store larger items or have long term storage needs (like holiday decor, for example), I almost always reach for plastic tubs. These containers are great because they are super sturdy and the lid helps keep out unwanted dust and bugs when storing in areas like a garage or basement. I always attach a label when possible!

7. File Boxes


We are mostly paperless in our house, so we don’t file much paperwork, but there are a few instances when file boxes really come in handy for organization. I use them to keep a small selection of the Cs’ original artwork from each year of school, and I also use one in my office to organize extra binder separators, plastic sleeves, and other binder supplies.

8. Small Plastic Bins


Small plastic bins are inexpensive (find them at The Dollar Tree and Target Dollar Spot!) and are perfect for corralling all of those teeny tiny items that always seem to be floating around (especially when you have kids)! We use them for everything from toy organization to kitchen storage– they are super versatile!

9. Lidded Cardboard Bins


I have only started using these more recently, and I really like them because they are inexpensive and perfect for holding large, lighter items like textiles, paper, and craft supplies. I filled my craft closet with these boxes in all different sizes, and they were the perfect solution to keep everything organized and separated by type. These particular boxes had spots for a label, and I added my own vinyl lettering on the sides as well.

10. Shoe Boxes


Finally, I couldn’t end this list without including shoe boxes! Shoe boxes are FREE and oh-so-versatile! I like to use wrapping paper to pretty them up, and I have used them to organize under the sink and as drawer separators to keep everything neat and tidy. They could also work for storing small toys, collections, or office supplies.

Who knew I could use so many different types of bins in one small house?! A lot of times, I think the key is finding the perfect container for the job, one that helps keep things neat and tidy without taking up a lot of space and being more of a hindrance than a help. Being able to separate items by category is huge when maintaining organizational systems, and if the organizers just happen to be pretty, that’s a bonus!
