If you are searching for tips on how to save space and stay organized, then you may want to

home, saving money on storage containers and helping the environment at the same time.
Reuse Boxes to Help the Environment and Save Money on Storage Containers

comforter or bedding, boxes can help you save space and get organized in no time whatsoever.
Decorate Your Boxes to Coordinate With Your Household Accessories
What is great about reusing boxes is that you can decorate your boxes to match your color
scheme and decor. Whether you are interested in making a bold statement with your boxes or
prefer something more subdued, you can paint or use contact paper to decorate each of your
boxes. Each box that you receive can be decorated to standout so it is no longer a plain box, but
one that blends with your decor and color scheme.
Label Your Boxes With Lettering
Whether you decide to use stencils or buy lettering that you can use to affix to the front of
each box, you can decorate each box you plan to reuse with small, medium or large lettering.
For instance, if you are using boxes to store items in a kid's room, then you should consider
decorating the box with lively bright contact paper, your child’s name and stickers that you
know your child will love. If you do not want to use a stencil or lettering, you do not have to put
anything on the outside of your box. Another option would be to use a magic marker to label

clothes, toys, bedding or other bric brac, reusing boxes can help you save space and stay
organized in each room of your home. To get and stay organized just pick a box for a particular
purpose and then decide whether you want to decorate it or not. Some boxes are perfect for
closets, drawers, attics and garages and other boxes can be used absolutely anywhere.
Use Boxes in The Garage and Attic to Save Space and Stay Organized
Another great place to use boxes for storage and organization are the attic and garage. In most
homes, the attic and garage are two places where everything that is not used on a daily basis
often gets stored. When it comes to creating space and getting organized, reusing boxes in both
the garage and attic can help free up space for additional items. Whether you need to get your
tools and supplies organized or have other items that you want to move from the inside of your
home to the garage or attic, putting boxes that you receive after ordering something online can
help you create space and get your attic and garage in order. .
If you are interested in getting organized and saving space, then you should consider putting
those boxes you receive after ordering items online to good use throughout your home and
garage. By thinking outside of the box, you will be on your way to reusing boxes to create space
and get organized quickly.
