How to Store Printer Paper

Awhile back, I picked up some bamboo trays from a consignment store {$3 each}  — for exactly this purpose.

When I organized my office, I stored the paper in the blue bin shown below. However, storing printer paper upright can cause it to bend. Even a slight curvature can affect how easily the paper will feed into a printer.

So shallow baskets or matching trays had been on my thrift shopping list for awhile. I knew they’d easily stack, with the paper inside.


These bamboo trays have worked great since the open sides keep it easy to see which color paper is stored.

Keep your eye out for these vintage bamboo trays the next time you are out shopping! I’ve seen them all over lately so hopefully it won’t be too difficult to track some down.

Me too! Maybe "flat printer paper" was just an excuse to buy them, haha :)
