Having raised many children, practical storage ideas were a key factor to staying organized in our home.

Most people would prefer a toy box specifically painted or decorated with a child theme; I opted for storage items that could easily grow as the kids did.
These narrow storage drawers, typically used for small toy pieces such as Legos or small figurines, are a perfect example of an organizational item that can be reused for other purposes.
Since the kids have grown, we’ve found other practical uses for the storage bins.
Using the Storage Drawers During the Little Kid Stage
During the ‘little kid stage,’ these storage bins were ideal for keeping smaller toys sorted. The boys were into army men toys and figurines..so much so that we needed multiple drawers to separate and organize all of them. The boys always enjoyed having their toys sorted; in fact, we used to have organizing days where we would get together and go through all their toys. They loved it. Don’t hesitate to decorate a room with storage bins as featured items. The colors and containers can add flavor to a space.
Additional Uses for Storage Bins:
- These bins are also ideal for coloring books and crayons. Put them in the playroom to store art, crayons, and other supplies. Although the boys eventually outgrew the army men stage, we always required coloring and art supplies; thus, these storage drawers stood the test of time.
- If you live in a seasonal climate, you can also use these to store mittens, hats, gloves, scarves. Our bins fit nicely into the front closet, so we loaded them with seasonal items.
- Put one in a bedroom closet to store smaller personal clothing items. Items you can keep in these bins are undergarments, nylons/stockings, socks, cami’s, jammies, and more.
- It also makes a great addition to a washroom (if you have the space) to sort supplies. Use it for makeup, hand towels, clothes, soap, blow dryers, flat irons, toothpaste, and other toiletries.
Well, you get the drift. It’s a great purchase that can last a lifetime.
