When we moved into our new home I immediately claimed the large downstairs laundry room as my OCC packing and crafting room. I have my sewing machine & cutting table set up so I can easily sew my pillowcase style dresses and other goodies to tuck inside my shoe box gifts. My husband added the ceiling tiles so my room would be neater and cleaner and added extra lighting so it's nice and bright to work in.
There were a couple of storage closets in our new home with this white wire shelving inside that we did not want to keep so my husband removed it. EUREKA!! Perfect to put up around the top of thelaundry room to hold my Operation Christmas Child shoe box supplies.
A couple of years back Office Max offered these Banker Boxes for free after MaxPerks rebates. I ordered all the maximum offered with rebates. They are great for sorting my shoe box stockpile: sturdy & easy to handle--tho some do get filled up quickly. I try to pack many of my boxes as I go which helps keep the stock in these boxes lower. But I like to keep many items to have mini packing parties with friends and family.
|Gotta love I'd choose a box with a misspelled label! LOL|
I used the Operation Christmas Child logo on labels I made to attach to the boxes. They offer a lot of graphics for use on their website.
So if you are struggling to find a place for your shoe box stockpile, look around and look UP -- you may find some spots just waiting to be utilized.
