Best Storage Solutions – From the Dollar Store!

Next time you are looking for an affordable storage solution don’t forget to check out the Dollar Store! You may be surprised what you find.

Getting your house organized doesn’t have to be expensive. In fact, you can bring order to every room in your home with just one trip to the dollar store! Most dollar stores carry a surprisingly thorough inventory of bins and baskets in a variety of colors, shapes and sizes that are great storage solutions.  Here are a few of our favorite dollar store storage products, and how to use them.

1. Plastic Boxes with Lids

These versatile boxes can be used in every room in your house. They’re stackable, easy to label, and translucent – so it’s easy to identify what’s inside. Use them to store craft supplies, toys, out-of-season shoes, snacks in the pantry, or bathroom toiletries under the sink. The possibilities are endless with these handy fellas.

2. Shallow Baskets

We love these shallow baskets because they’re perfect for drawer organization. They come in a couple of different sizes, making it easy to mix and match until you get the perfect combination to fit your particular drawer. Great for organizing kitchen drawers, bathroom drawers, or the always elusive junk drawer.

3. Tote Baskets and Tubs

These plastic tote baskets and tubs are great for outdoor toys, because they’re sturdy plastic and easy to clean. If you’re using colorful storage items, be sure to stick to only one or two colors for a cohesive look. Too many different colors will just make your space look cluttered.

5. Under the Sink

The space under the bathroom sink is one of the most difficult areas to keep tidy. We love this solution of using dollar store baskets, but with the added bonus of a DIY plywood organizer. If you’re not afraid of a couple of power tools, this is a great solution that brings those dollar store baskets to the next level.

Don’t be afraid to venture outside of the baskets and bins for even more storage solutions. You can repurpose dollar store items to fit your organizational needs. These markers are beautifully organized with glass flower vases.
