Storage & Organization
Storage ideas and organizing tips for home and office, more or less on the macro level. For individual products (the micro level), see "Tips, Cleaning & Organizing." For similar things that have slipped into other categories, see especially "Tips, ...," but see also "Card Catalogs," "Emergency!," "Freezing & Frozen," "Bookshelves... ," "Bookcase / Fireplace ...," "Home, Indoor," "Home, Garage," and "Home, Outdoor."
Amusing post; good idea: "My mother used to keep her jewelry in a ruffly pink chocolate box...and the inside was segregated into a grid of waxed cardboard dividers which made it great for earrings or small items. I'm very loosy-goosy with most of my jewelry...but some of it is old enough that I don't want them bumping around and losing stones. These little candy liners are just the thing!"

An Organized Spice Rack -- evidently this very cool pull-down spice rack is available online via Walmart or Target for 10 to 12 dollars or so. (The tip here is to alphabetize the spices, but I'm a librarian and way, way, way ahead of her on that one!)

In addition to durability, it’s very functional. There’s compartments for your desktop computer and other various items, as well as a good amount of drawers. This trunk is available at Restoration Hardware."
