|Boxes, Bin, And Miscellaneous.|
Evidently, many companies are now making half size zip-lock style storage bags that are perfect for small item storage in the shoe-box (or so) size plastic boxes. These are great. Not only do they fit perfectly in my storage boxes, but they stand up when opened with anything in them. You see, it really doesn't take much to make me happy! Obviously, you shouldn't put razor blades in them, but almost any item is OK. They are see through, and can support a fair amount of weight before the bottom rips out. I've been putting screws, nuts, bolts, small electronic parts, fridge and furnace ignitors and every other small replacement part that won't fit in any of the micro-boxes.

While the micro-boxes are cool, and very useful, these could be used to fill the extra space left over in almost any small plastic storage container. Since they are flexible, you can fit a few in your other boxes as well. The main issue I see, is sorting through everything I have to put like bits and pieces in order and then re-pack everything. I KNOW it will be a gigantic help. Especially on the road, where finding repair parts quickly and easily goes a long way to maintaining sanity in the face of a crisis. If I can get this all done, I'll likely regain some of the scarce storage space I have. They whole idea of "something for nothing" always intrigues me!
Well, it is Winter, so I DO have quite a bit of free time. My furnace works REALLY well, I could easily begin this process no matter how cold it is outside. The tough part is building up the momentum and the gumption to get it done. The dreary weather really doesn't help at all!
