Have you ever wondered what you should do with all those boxes you acquired after your PCS move? Or realized you moved into a house with absolutely no storage space? Creating your own storage baskets may be an answer to your problems! Store toilet paper in your bathroom on a shelf or under the cabinets in one, or blankets in the living room in a larger one.

Save some, or all, of those moving boxes and create new storage space for your new home…or old home too! The great part is you only need four items all of which can be found at most stores on your base.

What you need:

  • Cardboard box
  • Thick Twine
  • Hot Glue Gun
  • Fabric or Pillow Cases

How to Make:
1 – Find a moving box the size you want your storage bin to be. 

2 – Use the hot glue gun to glue the thick twine around the box horizontally. Keep wrapping it around until you reach the top. Start from the bottom.

3 – Line the box with fabric or a pillow case then add in whatever items you would like to store in it.

So now the question is how many storage bins are you going to need to make?
