I live in a tiny apt. and I have a small space to create things in. So, supplies and clutter and stuff just pile up.
Today, I found two almost identical three drawer plastic units for 4.00 each and decided to put them to good use. Now, for the tubs inside I admit I raid the recycle bins for coffee cans and plastic tubs. I also get them from friends so I have literally 20 of them. When they became the clutter I had to do something.
So I combined the two. Six of the shortest ones fit inside the drawers. They don't all match, but this was not a concern. They are in my entry way closet and no one sees them but me.
I used them to corral hardware, tools, gardening stuff, craft supplies, laundry stuff, and there is even room for a bottom drawer of shoes. I have actually run out of tubs and stuff to put in them, for now. But this is a wonderful start and gives me some breathing room in my work space.
NOTE: If you do this, be sure to put it from heavy on the bottom to light on the top and don't have more than one drawer open at a time. They will topple on you so little ones might want to be kept clear. Unless this is all for yarn or something. It's just something to keep in mind.
