Ingenious ideas for storage
In this day and age, space can be at a premium. The downturn has seen many people downsize
but whether this is the case with you or not, chances are that storage is a valuable commodity in
your home. Whether you are looking for the perfect spot to store your child’s school record or
you need more wardrobe space, you don’t need to use credit cards to create the extra space. You can just do it yourself.
One of the biggest selling snacks in the whole world, and all the tubes that you go through can
be put to good use. The package in itself is perfect for hiding away; and once they are emptied,
consider these options:
- Storage bin – A simple and effective way to use the can is for holding pens, hairclips,
cleaning equipment, seeds, paint brushes and toys. This gets things off the floor and tables and into
a cabinet. You could also think about having a first-aid kit in there, cover it with a red cross to
distinguish it from the rest!
- Saving box – Saving the cents or dollars is important, so having a box for your coins is a
great way for your children to save their pocket money.
- Sound amplifier – A little quirky this one, but if you can fit your alarm clock inside a
Pringles can it will amplify the sound when it does go off.
It may seem obvious but use your wall space to good effect by purchasing some cheap shelves as
storage. You can usually buy shelves ready-made and if you install them around 15 or 20 inches from
the ceiling you can use it to display plants and collectibles or to store photos and books. Not only
does this help to make your home more presentable but also more aesthetically pleasing to boot. p>
You can get these in all different shapes and sizes, and once you have finished with them they
can be used for numerous different things. Desk organization for receipts or pens and pencils,
kitchen storage for things like spices, nuts or even homemade jam and general house storage for
chargers, dish towels and obscure things like paper clips can also help. Don’t forget to paint them as
well to make them look the part.
