A Great Little Plastic Bin Set For Photos

Last weekend I got my wedding album, and knew that I needed to find a place to store the many duplicate photos that my wife and I had ordered.

New Uses for an Old Favorite

I have a few of these Iris Storage Bins at home. I’ve had them for a while and they have served me well over the years, storing everything from educational home-school games for my kids to my grandmother’s dishes.

Since the kids are almost grown, we have been able scale down a bit and we don’t need to store quite as much these days. These are such rugged plastic bins though – I hate to get rid of them. So this got me thinking of what else I could use them for in my home besides just storage. Here are a few ideas I came up with:
