These strawberry container hacks are so simple and make things just a little more organized. My favorite part is that they are free (of course, after you purchase the strawberries). The containers are clear, so you always know whats inside. You can put just about anything you want inside of them.
In a house with 4 children, one thing you can never run out of is… batteries. We always have an abundance of different sized batteries. Some of the battery packages we completely full, while others had 1 or 2 left in the package. The Strawberry containers give you a way to store all your batteries in one container. Since they are clear, you will know when you need to get more.
They work great for keeping your kids pencils together, as well. We always seem to lose our pencils right around homework time. Coincidence?
I think that every house with kids has at least one Lego lying around some where (just walk around bare-foot and you’ll find it). There were times with we would climb into bed at night and a few would be under the sheets. They end up everywhere!
These strawberry containers are a great way to store them. They are great for separating the individual Lego Sets as well, but in our house they all go together.
Our boys have a ton of Matchbox cars. Each of them have a few that they like the best. Our 7 year old, Beau, likes all classic cars. So he has a little container of his own where he keeps all the old Classic Muscle cars.
We found that the strawberry containers are great for bath time. They make for the best storage containers for the kids bath toys. The containers are designed to have perforated cut outs for the strawberries. Using them for bath toys keeps them contained, and allows for them to dry.
(Our daughter loves her princess castle bath tub toys and she loves to put them away herself!)
My favorite use for the strawberry containers is to make your own first-aid kit. We have several of these in our house. We keep one downstairs in the pantry and one upstairs in the laundry room. However, my favorite location is to keep one in the garage. It’s great for when your kids fall off their bikes and scrape their knee. (Its also great for me… for the occasional razor blade cut while completing a “honey-d0” list.)
They are also great for storing the million orphaned crayons that can’t seem to find an appropriate home. Now they can all live together in one container.
The strawberry containers also are great for your markers and other craft supplies like stickers and paint brushes.
Best part of all- They are great space savers, since they stack perfectly on top of each other.
