How To Turn The Waste Space In The Garage To The Mini Warehouse

Instruction--How to turn the waste space in the garage to the mini warehouse

I posted a thread at www.hipgirlclips.com/forums -- Home Made Storage Cube--Get My Ribbon Organized

A lot of feedback received asking about the instruction. So here it is.

1. Where to get the boxes.

The best place is uline.com. The boxes I bought are:

13X13X13 CUBE BOX 25/500 --$18 for 25 boxes

12X6X6 LONG BOX 25/900 --$8 for 25 boxes

25 cube boxes and 100 long boxes make 25 cubes.

2. Assemble 13x13x13 cube boxes, cut the flappers on one side. Black & Decker Cordless Power Scissors are used for this job. Here is the review of the scissors

3. Tape cubes together--front, back and side. Then put them against the wall.

4. Assemble 12x6x6 long boxes which will be drawers. Cut a square at one end of the box. 4 drawers fit in 1 cube. Please note how the drawers are put into the cube--the tapes show where the flappers are sealed--2 vertical and 2 horizontal. Otherwise the drawers will be too tight to slide.

5. Load ribbon (or whatever your inventories are) in the drawers, write the description on the box and then slide them into cubes. Sort the drawer by alphabetic order for best result.

6. The cube without the drawers can be used for larger objects.

7. For smaller objects, use small containers.

8. How to get those small containers for free? These are tennis ball cans. Check with your local tennis club. You'll get hundreds of them for free.

These cans are almost full so the box flappers (got a lot in step 2) are padded under the can's open side to prevent the hair clips from falling out.

Here are the pictures of our warehouse 3 years later. We are still using boxes (some are moved here from the garage) instead of plastic bins--earth friendly and wallet-friendly too.
