When storing things in the basement, should I go for the clear totes?

Clear totes are great for storing items in all areas of the home. They let you to see exactly what’s inside, which can be really helpful when you’re rushing around. Adding a label (even though you can see the contents) can also help on those very hectic days. Of course, if you prefer using colored containers, consider grouping items by color (e.g., all holiday supplies in red totes, all household supplies in green totes, blue for crafts, etc.).  Take a look at Rubbermaid’s “What do you want to store?” page to select the container that’s right for you. Thanks for your question!
