Storage Hacks for Video Games

Storage Hacks for Video Games

Need help organizing your makeup and jewelry on the go? Well, mDesign has a solution for you!

Let’s talk about what’s really going on at home. The global video game addiction. If your household is anything like mine, since quarantining started the screen time of video games has gone up substantially. How old are my boys you ask? Oh, no, it’s my husband’s addiction we are talking about today.

However, we shouldn’t stereotype that this is only affecting men - women and children are finding themselves bored at home and turning to all sorts of creative ways to not go insane. Enter – video games. There are lots of gaming consoles out there to choose from but the one thing that remains consistent is all the accessories that go with them.

Between the endless games you can buy, controllers, headsets, cords, batteries, accessories, and more, the clutter and lack of organization is out of control. Check out these top four video game storage ideas to help calm the chaos in your home.

1 Video Game Storage Bins
At mDesign, we specifically made bins that are perfect for holding video games. The built-in handles make these bins portable and they easily store inside cabinets and drawers.

2 Hanging Organizer
This hanging organizer is perfect for inside your cabinets in your gaming room/living room/basement. These organizers fit over most standard cabinet doors and there is no installation required. Simply hang and start organizing!

3 Hooks
Hooks are an under-utilized tool in the organization game. You can mount these on the wall, inside a cabinet, or on the side of a cabinet or desk. You can hang your headphones, extra cords, and controllers. Get the clutter off the floor and into its new home!

4 Stackable Boxes
Creating vertical space is key when you don’t have enough storage. These stackable boxes with a hinged lid, help keep you organized without even trying. You can add labels to them to add an extra layer of pizzazz and really make you feel like you are on top of your game.

While it doesn’t matter what system you use to stay organized, having a system at all is the key to success. Mix and match and don’t be afraid to try something new. Also, remember that your kids or spouse is going through this, too, and it is their way of escaping reality. While you might not understand how they spend hours playing that “stupid game”, to them, it is keeping them off the ledge!

Happy gaming!
