Many of our customers are collectors of one sort or another. Whether its sports memorabilia, LEGO, DVDs, or games, we love seeing their collections and the endlessly creative ways our customers use our products to organize them. We get to see many of these collections on the My Organized Life section of our website, a truly fun and inspiring place where customers can submit photos of their own spaces (often via Instagram) and demonstrate how they've used our products to find more space in their own homes.

In order to inspire all the collectors out there, here are a few of our favorite customer-submitted photos:

@katja discovered a clever new use for our Like-it Modular Drawers: compact disc storage. "I also switched most of my CD jewel cases to plastic sleeves - allowing me to store about 100 CDs in each drawer. Love the colorful drawer fronts, too," she says.

Need a compact way to store board games? @cincynanny suggests our Zippered Vinyl & Mesh Pouches (preferably labeled), which can then be organized in a bin--such as the Grey Fabric Storage Bin pictured above. "Not only does it save space, it's easy for kiddos to find and clean up," they rave.
