Everybody can relate to a lack of places to put things. At Poundstretcher, we have a huge variety of bargain plastic storage containers so you can de-clutter your home for less!
In light of the student season; where young, unsuspecting 18 year olds head of to their brand new digs in Fresher’s Halls or returning students are moving onto pastures new and renting a student flat with friends, their new abode will most likely be small and compact– a place unlikely to stay serene and clean in the exam period!
But, before you let your accommodation dictate your stress levels and, ultimately, effect you achieving your capabilities, check out our amazing selection of plastic storage containers below, hand-picked for students struggling to keep things organised and tidy!
The best way to save space is by utilising the space already taken up by something else. Under the bed is a great way to store items you may not need immediately. In the summer, free your wardrobe up ready for t-shirts, shorts and flip-flops by taking out all of your winter accessories like coats, wellies, scarves, hats, gloves and woolly jumpers.
But where to put them?
Fold everything up and pack it into one of our 32-litre Under bed plastic storage boxes. At ONLY £3.99 EACH or 3 for £10, you can store anything that you know you won’t need for a while in this plastic storage container and slide it neatly under your bed.
It’s as if it never existed! And, because it’s sealed and plastic, it is durable and will keep all the contents dry (in the unfortunate case that maybe you leave the window by your bed open in torrential rain!), as well as being easy to slide out so, you can still access everything you need!
And when the winter comes again, you can pull out your cosy clothes and replace the box with all your summer essentials!
Another way of utilising space that’s already being used is putting things on top of things. Our 42-litre plastic storage box can be slid up on top or in the top shelf of your wardrobe. It’s a great way of storing shoes or bags, as it’s deep but durable.
As well as your bedroom, this 42-litre plastic storage box would be perfect to contain all of your kitchenware. Pans, appliances and plastic Tupperware could all be stacked in this box and, with it being 42-litre, it is at the perfect size to store it in your assigned kitchen cupboard in a tidy way!
It’s a great way to keep your cupboard organised without having to worry about stacking neatly every time you put something in there! Plus, with its lid, you can keep everything fresh and dry, safe from leaky sinks!
They are just a couple of ways to use this plastic storage box but it is at that handy size where it is definitely multi-faceted. At ONLY £4.99 EACH or 2 for £9, this is the ultimate student’s must-have bargain storage solution product!
For your bulkier items like spare pillows, blankets, bedding sets or towels, this 80-litre plastic storage box is sufficiently deep so is great for the bigger things that you have nowhere to keep them.
It has a sealed lid meaning that whatever you keep in there, it will be kept safe from damp or dust, so you can leave it on the top of your wardrobe with no worries!
It also comes in three simple but bold colours; green, red and blue, so it will give your room a splash of colour, as well as keeping it organised and tidy!
This plastic storage container is ONLY £8.99 EACH or 2 for £13 (for if you’ve got more things to store away than you thought!).
For your smaller bits and bobs, we have an extremely useful 4 drawer plastic storage tower!
The tower is approximately H79cm x 39cm x 39cm so it won’t take up a lot of room. It would be great for having next to your desk to keep additional, non-essential note-pads, pens or folders in.
Or, if you’re short of drawers for clothes, why not use the plastic storage tower for underwear, socks or hosiery, freeing up the other furniture for the heavier items like jeans, jumpers or hoodies?
Another use for this plastic storage tower would be for jewellery, make-up, odd bits like swimming goggles or spare batteries– the tower is such a useful size and shape that the possibilities of storage are endless!
The 4-drawer plastic storage tower is available at your local Poundstretcher for ONLY £12.99 EACH! With so many uses for it, this is a bargain student storage solution!
This final plastic storage solution is perfect for students with somewhere to keep all those loose ends of papers and notes that (inevitably) get strewn dismissively on the desk after a lecture to get ready for the student event of the night!
So, instead of missing valuable time socialising with friends after class, pick up a plastic storage tower for your desk!
With 3 drawers, you can organise it whichever way you like so that pens, papers and notes are always collated in some sort of order!
At a bargain £7.99 EACH it’ll be money well spent when it comes to revising in the exam periods!
Neat and Tidy!
