Storage Bins — one of my favorite topics when it comes to organizing. Why? Because there is ONE, yes one, answer when it comes to storage bins — Iris Weathertight Totes.
Gone are the days of buying red and green bins at Christmas, and orange and black bins during Halloween. We are aiming for cohesiveness, consistency – all the same color and ideally all the same size.
Weathertight totes have it all —
- Super strong latches (not just two, think four or six)
- Air and watertight seal
- Made of quality ultra-clear polypropylene
- Multiple sizes, ranging from 6.5 qt to 103 qt (our go-to is the 74 qt)
- Available in clear or black
As always, measure twice, buy once. Do not purchase blindly – measure the width, height and depth of your shelves first and then invest in the storage bins of your dreams.
Pro Tip: Buy more bins than what you currently need. When organizing any area of the home, think long-term. While you will realistically discard some items over time, it is more likely you will accumulate more than you discard. Give yourself room to grow into.
