There are many uses for compartment boxes that aren’t just restricted to the tool shed or for fishing tackle. I have them throughout my entire house storing various items. I really don’t know of a better way to store the little things?
Anything that is small and needs separating is perfect for a compartment box. These items make such a mess when they all get mixed up. You can waste valuable time looking for your things or you may even waste hard earned money buying more of the same.
The uses are endless.
- Batteries divided into their various sizes.
- Keeping lego parts separate.
- Craft items for everything from beads to embellishments.
- Sewing needles, threads and spools.
- First aid kits containing various band aids and creams.
- Smaller makeup items from eye shadows to lipsticks.
- Stationery items such as clips, pins, pens and markers.
- Earrings, rings and other smaller jewellery.
- Screws, bolts and nails.
- Fishing hooks, sinkers and lures.
A versatile storage container.
Clear compartment boxes with movable dividers are the best ones to use. Having them in the same size will enable them to be stacked as well. This is also a great way to use shelf space. Make sure you label what you have and you will always be able to locate what you want at a glance.
Compartment boxes are such a cost effective storage solution that there are no excuses to purchasing a few this weekend! Get tackling those messy areas you’ve been meaning to do ‘some day’. If you are too overwhelmed then start with one drawer or shelf at a time.
See you next time!
