Storage Idea For Batteries

Today's blog is going to be short and sweet.  Recently I saw a great idea on Facebook.  It was a Good Housekeeping post with organizational tips.  They showed how to store batteries in a clear tacklebox.  I thought that would be an easy project, so we took a trip to the lumber store.  Actually we were going there anyway for some other things.  It so happened they had a plastic latching stowaway box in the perfect size.  It was also on sale for $5.83.  When we got home, we gathered all of our batteries.  Most of them were stored in a drawer in the original packaging.  Some had fallen out of the package and were laying loose in the drawer.


Since the compartments in the box are adjustable, they can be placed to fit each size battery.  When we were done, all the batteries were in one place.  It was amazing to me that all of our batteries fit in the box with a lot of room to spare.  Now when we are running low on a size, we can see it at a glance.


The post had all the batteries labeled, but I don't think that would be necessary.  It is pretty obvious which is which.

Latched and ready to put on a shelf.  No more digging for the right sized battery.
