Using office storage boxes is one of my favorite office organization ideas. It's so easy to implement and makes any desk and/or office look great!
Below you'll find a list of benefits to this organizing strategy, the items I store in my office boxes and storage box options to choose from. Happy organizing!
If you're wondering how to organize an office, one of the most beneficial ways to get the supplies in order is to use storage boxes. Here's why:
As you can see in the photo above, I use my decorative storage boxes to hold the following items on the shelves above my desk and also on the bookcase in my office.
There are tons of different kinds of decorative storage boxes; the possibilities are endless. In my office, I have boxes that range in size (small to large), material (metal, canvas, cardboard) and color (solid, pattern).
Other features to consider are things like acid-free storage boxes for archival purposes and plastic boxes seem to hold up best against finger prints and wear and tear. Like I said, the options are limitless!
I acquired boxes from The Container Store (canvas boxes), IKEA (metal and white boxes) and Michael's (striped cardboard box) when I came across something that fit into my office's color scheme, but you can find storage boxes anywhere (including The Dollar Store!).
Here's where you can find some of the boxes I have in my office online:
