Storing collections in a fun creative way can often be a challenge. My vintage magazine collection is bursting at the seams and I needed a way for me to store, organize, and somewhat display my collection without taking up too much room and still being able to access them easily.
In walked these vintage fruit crates. I was in the basement of an estate sale and there was a giant pile of all different sorts of these crates at $2 a pop. At the time, I wasn't sure what I was going to use them for, but they were stupid cheap and I've aways lusted after fruit/veggie crate decals.
These crates work great for storing magazines. They are designed to hold the weight of heavy produce, so they can withstand the weight of magazines. You can also fit a whole year of a title all in one crate and label the end, so it's easy to find the magazine you want when you need it. What I also love, is these are stackable and pretty compact -- fitting well under a bed, in a bookcase, next to a desk. Plus, because of their cute graphics, they are pretty too!
