Creative Uses for Plastic Storage Totes

Do you ever feel like you have too much clutter and not enough storage space in your home? Plastic storage totes are a great solution for organizing and storing your belongings. However, they can also be used for more than just storing seasonal clothing and holiday decorations. In this blog post, we'll explore some creative and unexpected uses for plastic storage totes that will help you make the most of your space.

DIY Vertical Garden

Turn your unused plastic storage totes into a unique vertical garden for your plants. Drill holes into the bottom and sides of the totes for drainage and attach them to a wall using hooks. Fill the totes with soil and your favorite plants or herbs. This is a great solution for those who live in smaller spaces or apartments without access to a traditional garden.

Toy Chest

Keep your children's toys organized and easily accessible with plastic storage totes. Label each tote with the type of toys or games inside. Stack the totes in your child's playroom or bedroom and teach them how to put their toys away themselves.

Pet Food Container

Keep your furry friend's food fresh and organized with a plastic storage tote as a pet food container. Label the tote with your pet's name, the type of food that is inside, and the date opened. You can also drill a hole in the lid of the tote and attach a scoop for easy feeding.

Garage Shelving

Create affordable and sturdy garage shelving with plastic storage totes. Stack several totes on top of each other and secure them using zip ties or bungee cords. If you need to reach something on a higher shelf, simply remove the totes that are in your way.

Emergency Kit Container 

Store your emergency kit items in a plastic storage tote and keep them in a safe and accessible place. Label the tote "Emergency Kit" and fill it with essentials like bottled water, non-perishable food, first aid supplies, batteries, flashlights, and extra blankets. You never know when you'll need to grab your kit during a storm or other emergency.

Although they are handy for storing items you don't use often, plastic storage totes can be used for more than just storing seasonal items. With a little creativity, they can be transformed into unique and practical solutions for organizing your belongings. Whether you need more storage space in your garage, playroom, or apartment, plastic storage totes are a versatile and affordable solution. Give these creative uses a try and see how they can improve your home organization.
