Creative Ways To Use Plastic Drawers For Storage
Patricia Lynn

If you’re at all like me, then you love collecting all sorts of things but often have no room for it. That’s why when I came across plastic storage drawers at a local store, I knew I could use them for all sorts of purposes.

After a few hours of organizing things around the house, I was left with so much more space. I was so impressed at how versatile they can be actually, that I put together a list for you to start using them as well!

Continue below to see different ways that plastic storage boxes can make your life easier and your items accessible!

Store your makeup in one place


Your bathroom can start looking like a tornado rolled through when you forget to organize makeup items. Using plastic drawers can make it much easier to keep everything in one place. You’ll be surprised at how little things will go missing!

Never lose your jewelry again!


You’ve probably come across a time where an earring or a necklace went missing for a long period of time, and then randomly turned up somewhere like under your bed. Using small plastic cabinets isn’t only great for keeping your makeup tidy, but it also helps for jewelry too!

Organize all your cords!


With so much new technology these days, you probably have all different kinds of cords lying around the house. Some gadgets require a USB cord. Others require an Apple Lightning Cable. It can get pretty confusing and hectic. Fortunately, you can use a plastic drawer to organize all these cables in one convenient location.

Store your desk items


Having a tidy workstation always helps me get my work done easier. Using small plastic cabinets can be a great way to keep all your markers, pens, and paper clips all in one location so they won’t end up all over the place!

Keep track of your important documents


If you’ve ever misplaced an important document for taxes or for work perhaps, you know how stressful it can be to search around through your house to find it. Using a storage drawer to keep all of your documents in one location can help to make sure you don’t lose important items!

Keep your closet from overflowing


When my closet started overflowing, these little plastic storage boxes were amazing in helping me keep my room organized. You’ll be amazed at just how much space you can save in your closet!

And your socks from going missing!


If you have kids, you probably fully understand the struggle of trying to keep pairs of socks together, and random socks away from being littered all over the floor. Using these little plastic drawers to keep them all together will go a long way.

Pet food storage


If you have both a cat and a dog, use a plastic drawer to organize and store their food.

Store all of your emergency items


It’s always good to be prepared for times where you need emergency items like batteries, flashlights, or candles– especially in times of a dangerous weather event like a storm or a tornado. Placing everything you need for such a situation in one place makes it super easy to keep track of what you have and what you will need.

Help your kids keep their dorm rooms neat and tidy!


Like most parents, you’ve tried to teach your kids the virtue of having your things organized in life. When they go to college though, your kids are on their own, and old, untidy habits might resurface. Sending plastic drawers along with your kids can help them make sure that organization is something they take with them even when they leave home!

Keep your bathroom clean


Cleaning our bathrooms are something we do all the time. It’s so much harder to do though, when there are things all over the place. Introducing one of these plastic storage drawers to your bathroom will be a ton of help in making sure all of your towels and bathroom supplies can be put away in one convenient place.
