Easy Storage + Organization with Clever Crates {Free for Fall Giveaway Hop}

Disclosure: I received a set of Clever Crates for review, but no other compensation was received and all opinions expressed are my own.


Welcome to the It's a Free for Fall Giveaway Hop, hosted by the Blogging Mamas Network.

Fall is finally here - yay! Now, if only the weather would cooperate and cool down right away for me - that would be awesome. I've joined with a bunch of other amazing bloggers to bring you a fall-themed giveaway hop. Each blogger in the hop has a prize for you worth at least $25, so don't forget to hop around to them all in the linky at the bottom of this post.

If you follow me on Instagram, you probably have noticed that I talk a lot about how I am always working on organizing my house. This is partially because I have too much stuff and too many projects. So I'm really excited to tell you about a recent find that has made my organization just a little bit easier: Clever Crates.


These crates, ranging in size from 35 lb capacity to 132 lb capacity, are an easy way to organize and transport household items. They have a unique lightweight and collapsible lift, pop and pack design - so when these containers are not in use, they fold down and can fit in tight spaces. That is my kind of organizing tool.


At first, I thought this design seemed too good to be true. I've never found a folding crate that actually seems sturdy enough to hold anything of significance, but these crates have been given my stamp of approval. Made from durable, reusable, sustainable and recyclable material, these crates are easy to clean, easy to use, and easy to store. In my house of toddlers, that's definitely a win. I'm forever forgetting to bring my reusable bags to the grocery store, and I love the idea of using Clever Crates for this task - they would easily fit underneath a cart and stay out of the way while grocery shopping.


So far, our primary use for the Clever Crate is storage in our home. We're keeping some of our preschool supplies in one of the small baskets (makes it easy to transport from room to room), and I have used my large crate for current sewing projects and supplies. These projects were formerly thrown all over my kitchen table, so this is a definite improvement.


The Clever Crates are available in a variety of colors. They range from $9.99 - $19.99 (depending on size) and are available online here or at some North American retailers.

Sewing organization for the win!

Don't just take it from me, though. Take a peek at this video - you can see the Clever Crates in action. The video is actually what convinced me to give them a try!
