Last week the temperatures started rising and it was actually feeling like Spring. It got me in the mood to start my Spring cleaning which means going room by room to get rid of the clutter, dusting everything and the biggest challenge … pulling out warm weather clothes and packing away the winter clothes.
My biggest motivator for this huge task was a delivery of Fellowes Bankers Boxes in a variety of sizes. We got two of the large, two of the under-the-bed, four medium and four small boxes. That is a LOT of Bankers Boxes and they are surprisingly easy to put together. They come to your door shipped flat and have easy to follow instructions for folding.
Right away I found two unique features that make these great for indoor organization. Each box has a clear, plastic window that makes it easy to see what’s inside the box and doesn’t compromise the sturdiness.
Also, there’s plastic handles that snap on to each side making them easy and comfortable to carry. This is particularly helpful when you’re storing heavy items.
When I sat down to create a Spring cleaning plan the first place I decided to start was my laundry room. I have this thing for collecting blankets. We still have every blanket we’ve ever bought or received as a gift that I fold and toss on top of our laundry room shelf. The problem is the cats climb up there and knock the blankets down. So we used a variety of the Bankers Box sizes to store and organize the blankets. Now they all fit neatly on the top shelf and the box windows make it easy to find any particular blanket we need.
I also went through my kitchen and closets to find cookbooks that were randomly hidden throughout the house. As you can image, the 20+ cookbooks stuffed into that box are extremely heavy. Surprisingly, the box is sturdy enough to hold them all without the bottom giving out. They’re heavy-duty triple wall constructed making them perfect for light, medium or even heavy storage.
