Something about the start of a new school year just screams, “Get organized!” at me. And this year, our oldest started kindergarten (sniff) so I’m even more crazed to purge, sort, and stack. Since I KNOW you know what I mean, I’ve compiled 10 of my favorite storage ideas. Each of these solutions upcycles things you may already have into awesome-ly useful–and stylish–storage containers.
Recycled glass jars with painted animal tops by House to Home
CD tower turned on its side by Itsy Bits and Pieces
Coffee cans covered with rope (source unknown)
Crib rail used for book storage by Living with Lindsay
Diaper boxes upcycled into cute storage crates by Mandy’s Krafty Exploits
Wire magazine racks used for fruit instead by Willow House
Plain plastic bins Mod-Podged and with added wheels by Woman’s Day

Plain boxes covered with maps by Design Sponge
Are you inspired to hunt through your house to see what you can turn into a storage container now? I happen to be working on my own project using a repurposed shoe holder, which I can’t wait to share with you once it’s done. What are you working on?
