Colossal Christmas Countdown:
31 Days Until Christmas!
As a bona fide organizational junkie, my husband swears that I need to own stock in plastic storage containers. I have a ton of plastic storage boxes of all shapes and sizes in my house, for that's the only way I've found to stay truly organized. The holidays can be especially hectic and having your seasonal items tucked neatly away can both protect your Christmas treasures as well as make them easy to find and display year after year.
Snapware is a company I am all too familiar with and is one of my favorite manufacturers of quality storage solutions. I was fortunate enough to have the chance to review three of their containers, just perfect for the holiday season. Keep reading to find out more!
Snap 'N Stack Ribbon Dispenser, which retails for $9.99
Snap 'N Stack X-Large 2-Layer Ornament Box with Cardboard Dividers, which retails for $24.99
Smart Store 16" x 6" with Adhesive Labeling System, which retails for $13.99
I am lucky that my mother has kept all of the old Christmas ornaments I grew up with as a child. Many of these are very precious to me, including the one I made in Kindergarten, the few I cross-stitched back when I was first learning how to sew and the one my first grade teacher gave me. I also have several that I remember shopping for with my mother that always bring back fond memories of the holidays.
These ornaments are irreplaceable to me and so must be protected properly. The Snap 'N Stack X-Large 2-Layer Ornament Box from Snapware is definitely up for this job! This super sturdy ornament holder can house 16 ornaments per layer and because each tray is over 4" tall, even very large holiday ornaments can be safely stored inside. The cardboard dividers which accompany this container are also adjustable so that you can get just the right fit.
I also really liked the heavy-duty handle which seems to be able to withstand years of lugging ornaments both in and out of the attic. Of course, I was blown away by the fact that Snapware offers a LIFETIME GUARANTEE on their products too! Now I know these organizational solutions are really built to last!
What would Christmas be without tons of beautiful ribbon? Every year I make sure to hit the after-Christmas clearance sales to stock up on plenty of ribbon to use as home decorative accents, to wrap presents with as well as decorate our Christmas tree and mantel with. Of course, having it all in one place is key and makes gift wrapping SO much easier.
I'm so glad to have the chance to review the Snap 'N Stack Ribbon Dispenser, for it can easily keep 5 large rolls of ribbon at the ready without ever needing to open the box. Because it has the Snap 'N Stack design, it is very easy to add additional trays and even comes with one perfect for storing scissors, tape or smaller rolls of ribbon. The Snap 'N Stack Ribbon Dispenser is almost 10" long and so can organize and dispense even smaller rolls of ribbon up to this width.
Finally, I had the opportunity to review one of the Smart Store Snapware containers with Adhesive Labeling System. I chose the 16" x 6" size for I really needed a quality container perfect for storing all of my cookie making items, such as my cookie press, extra discs, decorating tips and holiday cookie cutters.
Now, I have all of my Christmas cookie baking materials in one convenient see-through box, which is also labeled so that I can easily find these items every year. I was very surprised at how tight and secure the locks on the Smart Store container were, and because the Smart Store is made with food safe plastic, I know it is perfectly safe for transporting cookies with me to a holiday gathering too.
I was completely thrilled with all three Snapware containers I reviewed and would recommend them highly to anyone looking to incorporate a little more organization into their holidays. All of these items are extremely durable and heavy-duty, with a lifetime guarantee standing behind each and every Snapware product. They are all very well-designed and will definitely protect and organize anything you have in mind.
Disclosure: I received the three storage containers shown above from Snapware in order to facilitate my review. No other compensation was received. This product review is based on my own personal experiences with this item and is completely honest and objective.
