Tips and Tricks: Out of the Box Storage


Reader T. Baker shared an "out of the box" storage solution for in-progress projects - pizza boxes! They're large, lightweight, easy to find new (and cheese-free) online, and much cheaper than conventional plastic storage bins. You can find them in plain white or dress up the brown version with some decoupage. The only cuter way to store WIPs just might be a pink bakery box.

They're great for layer cakes and semi-completed blocks. I find with charm squares I have to paper clip my like-blocks together or they just jiggle around in the box too much.

You don't have to go on line to get pizza boxes.....just ask your pizza shop for some unused ones. Our pizza shop gave me some.

my local pizza joints are happy to give me 3 or 4 at a time. they are so handy for so many things. completed blocks,pattern and fabric for a project, and a completed table runner or baby quilt will fit in one. and they stack so nicely on one corner of a project/cutting table

If you line the pizza box with scrap batting, the small pieces won't slide around.

Bugs can live in the baffles of corrugated cardboard. That's why it it's not allowed to be used for storage in hospitals. You can google "pest in cardboard" to read more.

Ooh, Cathy, that's gross. I'm going back to plastic that I can throw in my dishwasher.....
