Things to consider as you choose a container:
--What will be stored in the container? Take into consideration the amount of stuff and how heavy it will be. Storing heavy items in large bins will make moving them very difficult.
--Where will the containers be stored? Will they need to be stacked? If so, you want to have flat tops so that is possible. You will probably want to take measurements of the shelf, drawer, cabinet, etc. to be sure that the containers will fit.
--Clear is almost always best. You can see what is in the container.
--The more squared off containers are, the more practical. Curves and angles are space wasters.
--Frequently used containers are often better without a lid. It’s just easier. You might not put the mail away if you have to lift or unlatch a lid.
--Let the container be the limit or the boundary for what is stored inside. Once it gets full, it’s time to weed out rather than purchase another container.
