    I just cleaned out our under the stairs closet. I threw away 15 cardboard boxes (actually giving away and reusing some so as not to be wastefull because they're still in good shape) and replaced them with plastic bins with lids. Does anyone have any suggestions for comics or magazine storage...

  8. Coupons
    Coupon storage is so important! I tried 3 systems before I ended up with one that works for me. I have the CaseIt 5 inch zippered binder with a 3 inch set of rings and a 1 and 1/2 set of rings(I think it's one and one half). It cost $25. I got it on the case it site. Next I got Avery inserts...

  10. Question and Answer
    What types of storage containers do you all use for things like dry mixes, cereals, grains, beans, rice ? I read that certain containers, like mayo jars etc are not good because they may not seal tight. Dont have a lot of money in the budget to spend on expensive container systems.
