Easy Cabinet Organization: IKEA Storage Boxes

Storage Box Organization

I recently put these inexpensive IKEA storage boxes to use in the cabinet above my kitchen desk, and they make me smile every time I open it up.

Where I used to see piles of random office supplies and household items all jammed together, I now see symmetry, balance and peace. It’s now my goal to make every cabinet in my house elicit the same warm fuzzy feeling!

I started this organization project by measuring the width, depth and height of my shelves to ensure I purchased the right size storage box.

Once I had the boxes in hand, I began grouping like items into piles: labels and photo paper, chargers and adapters, picture hanging hardware and hooks. Smaller supplies like binder clips and staples were corralled in these super-handy meal prep food containers from Walmart.

They’re inexpensive and durable, and easily organize any number of household items. I love the clear lids that enable me to see exactly what’s inside. They would be perfect for storing sewing supplies, craft materials, art supplies, small toys, etc.

Once my meal prep organizers were assembled and stored inside the boxes, I created labels detailing the contents of each box and affixed them to the sides. Lighter boxes went up top to make it easier to retrieve them from overhead.

These storage boxes are useful for pantries and linen closets, too. They are large enough to store magazines, dozens of video games, DVDs, photographs, books, toys…the possibilities are endless.
