Storage containers are an essential part of New Year’s clean up. Specialized containers can keep your wreaths, shiny brights, and other precious ornaments safely and neatly stowed until another year. Craft supplies, fabric scraps, sewing gear, and even seasonal clothing do well when placed in storage containers. A good container is waterproof, can be neatly stacked and is resistant to crushing. Some containers, such as those for financial records, benefit from having a lock even if it only resists curious children. Storage containers help you keep up with all the small bits that are part of your life.
