Can you believe it’s time to start thinking about school starting back up already? This summer seemed to fly by. Going from a summer schedule to a school schedule can be rough, and one of the ways I find to make it easier is to keep organized.
These mini modular storage crates are one of my favorite ways to keep a desktop organized. They are perfect for students of all ages and can actually serve multiple purposes in a college dorm. And the best part? They are only $1.99 at Old Time Pottery so it won’t cost an arm and a leg to stock up on them!
These crates measure 6″x7″x9″ and come in a variety of colors. Their small size makes them great for placing on the back of a desk and building your surface area UP to add more storage space.
There are little notches on all sides of the crate to “lock” them together so they do not move around. It allows for safe stacking of the crates.
You can see how easy it is to lock these 4 crates together. It also allows them to be more compact and take up less space than if they simply sat next to one another.
You could stack an endless number to create the amount of storage needed.
Fill the crates with office supplies such as notebooks, post-its, pencils, and more! Save the surface area of the desktop for books and papers for homework by building your storage UP for all of those supplies we find ourselves needing.
Stack the crates right side up if needed. They are the perfect width to hold composition notebooks. Place larger spiral notebooks, notepads, and books in between crates. They will act as bookends.
Stacked right side up also allows you to add a little decorate to them if desired. Thread ribbon or paper through for added color.
These crates would be perfect in a dorm room as not only as office storage, but in closets to store socks, leggings, delicates, and even shoes. Or stash them under the bed, on shelves to build up storage, or on the nightstand.
The possibilities are endless!
