In the eleven years that I have been writing this blog I have intermittently made attempts to organise my photos. Little by little I make some progress. I recently uploaded the entire collection to the cloud but this post is not strictly about the photos.
While I was sorting through them I found random photos I have taken of different storage solutions that work for me. Here is a selection.
Rolls of wrapping paper in a repurposed shoebox.
In the cupboard in the spare room. Various bags sorted into categories for reuse. A beautiful old tin which is full of buttons (also sorted and bagged). A plastic tub of all our CDs. They have all been ripped and saved on the computer but we can’t quite bring ourselves to get rid of them.
Folded teatowels in a repurposed timber box which lives in the linen cupboard.
The plastics drawer with containers stacked in piles. This needs maintaining regularly.
The cupboard in the office is constantly evolving.
Storage is not an alternative to decluttering but it does help to be able to maintain a level of organisation. However, I do not advocate rushing out to buy specific matching containers. As these photos show it is possible to utilise various containers that you probably already have available.
