Dear TEOT: Finding Storage Boxes

Sara Story design via Desire to Inspire

One of our readers, Diana, asked us to source some storage boxes so she can neatly store all of her favorite design mags. I decided to do a whole post because I too need a lot of storage boxes because the office in our house now has a lot of open shelving and we need to organize the mess. Click on the images to link to item.

So the search will obviously begin at IKEA where you’ll find a range of storage boxes, some flimsier than others.

1. Emu, great for storing CDs or DVDs

2. Snack box

3. Strikt Magazine box (cotton)

4. Mackis (customize to make it any color you like)

5. Knuff magazine file (at $4.99 and wooden, this one is my pick!)

6. Dokument (mesh)

  • The subsequent time I read a weblog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint me as much as this one. I mean, I know it was my option to read, however I truly thought youd have one thing fascinating to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about one thing that you could repair when you werent too busy searching for attention.
