Packing cubes are not just for travel!
I am a huge fan of packing cubes and get asked all the time by friends if there are other uses for packing cubes for people who don't travel often. The answer is yes, I use my packing cubes all the time even when I'm not traveling. The size and shapes of packing cubes lend themselves to being used in drawers at home all the time. For example I have a drawer that holds my socks and underwear, I used to have a kind of imaginary divide between the two but their came a point where I was stuffing in socks and underwear all over the drawer and it was taking longer in the morning to sort out the two. Then it occurred to me, I use packing cubes to organize my clothes when I travel why can't I do the same for my clothes that stay at home?
It started with the socks and underwear drawer, but when I realized that their already being in packing cubes made packing for travel more expedient I started to expand my drawer cubing. In my T-shirt drawer I have a lot of white undershirts that I like to keep together because I wear them more often than my colored T's. So I arranged my T-Shirts according to the colors of the rainbow and stacked them in cubes and I no longer have to spend time searching for the shirt that I want.
You can probably also use the smaller cubes or sacks to organize all your loose wires in your drawers, but I have found that having the clothing in my drawers in cubes makes finding what I want to wear easier and when I do pack up to travel I just have to grab a few cubes. put them in a duffle and I'm good to go.
