Bin Buddies

You know what I admire? Creative people who see a need and fill it, making our lives just a little bit easier. That is exactly what Gretchen from PacEasy has done with her fabulous and innovative product appropriately named Bin Buddies. Bin Buddies are a durable and washable insert for your household totes that offer handy pockets to keep everything tidy and organized for easy access. Bin Buddies come in various sizes depending on the size of tote you own.

I admit when Gretchen first contacted me about trying out this product I was a bit skeptical. I didn't really understand at first what this product was going to do for me or how it was going to make my life better. It wasn't until I opened the package and saw how it worked and all the glorious pockets inside that the lightbulb went off.

I immediately knew what I was going to use this product for. In our playroom, the kids have a Rubbermaid tote that we use to store all the little indoor hockey sticks, lacrosse sticks and balls and balls of all sorts and sizes. I wish I'd remembered to take a picture of how it looked before. You have to imagine that the sticks didn't stand straight up and kept falling over and out and the little balls got buried at the bottom so the kids had to dump the entire tote to just to get one out. It was a headache but the gear was contained and so we lived with it. Until now.....



The Bin Buddie fit inside my tote perfectly and now offers plenty of pocket space for the sticks to stand up straight as well as pockets for the small balls. I really am very pleased with it how easy it was to assemble and the versatility of it. I also love the idea of using it for picnics or camping as well. We already use Rubbermaid totes for all our camping gear but this product will help organize it even further for us.

Totes are an amazing storage tool.....Bin Buddies with handy pockets make them even better!

The pictures are a little too dark to get the effect of what they do. I think I get the idea, but would love to see a lighter picture so that I could see how everything is staying in place.

Wow!! Those look great. We use bins for camping and that will really help the organization of said camping gear!

I use a bin buddy for the gear I keep in my car, jumper cables, window cleaner, first aid kit, tools, umbrella, my map case. Now when I wnat something it is in one or another pocket and I can find it easy. I wish I had them years ago for when I went tent camping with the kids. Sure would have made the cooking more organized. It's a great product. There are also organizers for tools and pet supplies that are great. Check out their web site.

I could use one of those for the bin in my truck! And the Pet Buddies looks interesting, it might just work in our Critter Room... I'm going to have to take a closer look. Thanks for posting the review!
