Storage containers are drawers or cabinets which are used to keep the area free of clutter and mess. Storage containers are most often made of plastic, and are easy to store away, hence the purpose of them. There are other similar products where in you can store your clothing, and other cloth goods in a plastic bag, vacuum seal it, and store it away. These two forms of storage are very similar, and both have their own advantages and disadvantages. With the vacuum sealable bags, space is definatley a plus, but they may look messy and cluttered still, where as with the storage drawers or cabinets, a neat look is held.
These two devices can also of course be used together. Simply sort your goods into the plastic bags and vacuum seal them, then place them into the neat plastic drawers where you can both optimize space, and keep the neat presentable look. It is of course all upon the users personal tastes as to which form of storage containers they will use.
