Parent Hack: Cheap Storage
Written on April 4, 2006 by Kevin.
My wife and I moved into a townhouse nearly 1.5years ago. We knew that we wanted to have a child and our 2 bedroom place was going to get cramped if we stuck around too long. Our office is filled with storage bins filled with god knows what. AJ would have a field day getting rid of our stuff.
When Rylan moved into his size 3 diapers, the shape and size of the box changed. It dawned on me one day that we could be using his boxes for storage. In fact, they work great for my wife's scrapbooking items. They fit the 12x12 paper perfectly with a bit of room and plenty of space to add little stickers. These boxes are sturdy and have solid handles. I imagine that these would be more difficult to get into than a storage bin once taped up.
I think that we will be using these boxes in the future to store away Rylan's old toys or clothing. While they may not work to keeping the dust out, they will certainly make life easier when we decide to move.
