If you’ve got kids then you’ll already know how hard it is to keep their bedroom tidy (without having to bribe them with a sweet treat just to get them to tidy it) and you can’t go a day without having to pick up all the toys from the floor just to get to the bed to say goodnight. This is where clear storage boxes come in handy, as you can keep them on the shelves, you can stack them and the kids don’t have to ransack the whole bedroom just to find what they’re looking for, with the boxes being transparent.

The same goes for your own storage as well. Clothes and shoes are also perfect for storing in the boxes, especially if there are items that you don’t wear that often but you want to protect and perhaps just stack at the back of your wardrobe to create some space. Due to their transparency, you too don’t need to ransack your whole wardrobe just to find those shoes that you want to wear to that friend’s wedding.

To help get you started, these are our top five ways of using the clear plastic storage box with the bedroom:

1) Toys and Teddies

If you need some motivation for gardening then starting off by organising your garden shed will help inspire you. Sounds strange we know, but just hear us out...

16) Garden Tools
