Organize Basement into Boxes

My basement is a storage/bar area.  Our storage area consists of my old teaching boxes, holiday decorations, wires and cords, suitcases, and gift wrapping supplies.  The bar area has all of our old bar glasses and tables.  We put bar stools and some old chairs that we don’t use anymore in that area.

It took me about 5 hours to get it all organized.  I bought lots of plastic boxes to put the storage items in.  I get clear boxes instead of solid colored boxes so I can see exactly what is in the boxes.  Even when I use painter’s tape and a sharpie to label the boxes “Christmas” and “Halloween,” I like to see exactly what is in them specifically.  That way I will know what to bring up if I needs lights or stockings.

These are the boxes that I used for the basement storage.
