Uses for Old Briefcases

We have a very small fifth wheel trailer so storage is always a challenge. Our interests; archeology and biology, take us far and wide and we are often far away from stores for days or weeks so we try to stay organized and prepared.

We use soft side briefcases, bought at garage sales and thrift stores for $1-5, to organize and store many necessities in the truck and trailer. They are durable and very easy to stash.

We have the basics: first aid, picnic, tools, etc., bags in the truck and trailer. We also store reference books, maps, camera gear, biology and archeology materials, grandkid toys, etc., in the bags, as well. Each bag is tagged with it's contents.

This storage method is certainly not decorative or "cool" but is incredibly useful and serves our needs very well.

Give each child a cheap briefcase; you can often find these for next to nothing at Goodwill and consignment shops. A briefcase is better than a duffel bag or grocery bag because it limits the amount of stuff and makes a great personal desk.
