I need containers to store scrapbooks. Not the really big ones because they have to be lifted up onto a closet shelf.

The trick with storing scrapbooks is to find containers tall enough to store them (without going to wide with the solution) since scrapbooks are traditionally long in size.

You can probably get away with storing 4-5 scrapbooks in this Snaptop Plastic Storage Case by Iris. I like that it’s clear and can be labeled and also has a handle for transporting on and off the shelf.

Since these magazine files are open ended on both the top and one side, you could store a couple on a high shelf and use the handy round cut out to pull off of a high shelf.

I also like the idea of using shelf dividers (sturdier than book-ends) to keep scrapbooks in place. You can label the shelf to designate what category of scrapbooks go where, while being able to remove 1-2 at a time without leaving a jumbled mess.

Beth Zeigler knew she was on an organizing path when at the age of 5 she was maximizing her closet space to function as a second bedroom for her dolls. Throw in her background of delegating tasks to her younger brother throughout childhood–and her transition to organizing developed quite organically. Check out her web site at Bneato!
