what to do with all of those pesky batteries?

It seems like everything we need batteries for takes a different kind. AA, AAA, D, C, the list goes on. I honestly can't remember where I found this because I would love to give the person who came up with this genius idea credit but what can ya do. We had so many half used packages of batteries laying around that I needed to put them in one, organized place. It's so simple. I don't know why I never thought of it before!

We purchased the container at Ikea for like $3 and you can move the dividers around to fit your needs but if you aren't lucky enough to have an Ikea near you, I bet you could find something similar at any craft store. If you want the same container from Ikea, you better hurry! They are discontinuing it soon. Then I used my handy label maker so I can find which kind I need easily. I'm thinking of using the large space for used batteries because *someone...ahem, the hubby* keeps forgetting to take them to be recycled on campus. 

Just thought I would share this great organizational tool!

  1. That is such a great idea. I have mine in bags, but it gets so frustrating sometimes to deal with the bags and the container keeps everything organized so nicely.

  2. Bags would be a step up from the system...or lack of system...I had going on. I love having them all in one, organized place! And only having to spend $3 to do it :)
