Small Storage Boxes – If you have many small things to keep but would not like to invest in a permanent storage system, you can make yours with cardboard boxes and increase in size over time. It is not the most resistant system that exists, but it is flexible, easy to make and cheap. Maybe it’s just what you’re looking for. Get the boxes. If you cannot find them nearby, search the internet. You can use boxes of the size you want, as long as 4 long boxes (drawers) fit inside a cubic box (compartment). Arrange the cubic boxes inside a drawer unit. Cut the flaps on one side.
Tape the cubes, on the front and back sides. When you finish placing the tape, place the entire unit against the wall. Build the longest small storage boxes that will work as drawers. Cut a square at the end of the box. 4 drawers enter a compartment. Place your things in the drawers. Write the description in the box. Then, place the drawers inside so that the order makes sense. Sort the drawers alphabetically. As an alternative, classify the drawers so that the things you use most often are at arm’s length, are easy to reach and that the things you use less frequently are lower or higher. Slide the drawers in the compartments.

Use compartments without drawers for larger objects. Use small containers to store smaller objects. For example, cans of tennis balls. Look at the local tennis club if they can give it to you, maybe you’ll get hundreds of them for free. If the cans are almost full and you are worried that things will come out, you can place a liner under the open side of the can (under the flap) to prevent the things inside from falling out. Use the flaps of the boxes to create grid systems inside the small storage boxes. For example, use 6 flaps, mark them in 3 parts and then cut them by the brand halfway through it.
