Here are some other ideas if you feel like upgrading from plastic to other storage options.
·         Fabric!  There are so many different options for fabric boxes and baskets out there nowadays, you are sure to find the one that matches your decor scheme.  Fabric is great choice for a storage container in the office, and also when organizing a closet to hold everything from accessories to shoes, sweaters and more.
·         Wicker – This is an old favorite for a reason.  You can swap wicker for plastic for an organizer that will work just as well as your old one but that has an updated style.  Wicker baskets are great for office storage, kitchen, bedroom and bathroom, of course!
·         Eco Friendly Options – Look for recycled paper, and even reclaimed wood boxes to replace your plastic ones.  You’ll be doing everyone and the planet a huge favor!
·         Start Small!  I know it’s not as cheap, so I would recommend once a month or even once a year, whatever works into your budget, simply swap out an old plastic bin for a new and improved, stylish storage bin.  But don’t throw away that plastic bin – it can be moved into the garage or outdoors for a new use!
