25 Creative Ways To Use and Store Items

Boxes, baskets and bins, oh my! With such an array of containers to contain our stuff, we really have no excuse to clutter up our spaces, do we?

I totally understand that this is easier said than done for some people. That’s usually because, often times, it just comes down to not knowing how to use what we already have to get organized. Sometimes, we just need a little guidance or a little inspiration to get us going. So, that’s what you’ll get here!

Types of Storage Containers

As I mentioned, containers have one sole purpose in life – to contain or hold things. No rocket-science needed for that bit of knowledge! The idea here is to find creative uses to store “like-items” (items that are alike, or in same category of).

This can be done using:

  • plastic holders
  • decorative baskets
  • storage bins
  • jars or bottles
  • cans
  • boxes or crates
  • cartons
  • buckets
  • chest or old suitcase

Basically, it’s ANYTHING that holds a physical object.

And now that we know this, let’s SEE all the different ways to use them! I’ve compiled 25 of my favorite creative uses of these containers from my “Stylish Home Organization” Pinterest board (in no particular order):
