I've had some memorabilia deep-stored in plastic boxes in the garage, but when I went to sort through them, many of the boxes were permeated with an unpleasant mildew-y smell, so plastic is not the answer.

I keep my studio supplies in cardboard boxes, recycled glass jars, wire baskets etc which just look better. But...if you are organizing a playroom for young children, wicker, cardboard and the like won’t last long. I first bought some cheap plastic bins but they eventually cracked and warped. I then found “really useful boxes”, though much costlier, they seem to be indestructible (we’ve had them years. They also come in practical sizes, have locking handles, and all sizes nest together. I wish I had bought these boxes first as I would’ve saved myself much frustration! I plan to keep these boxes for life.
