All the Items You Can Organize with Pegboard Bins

Pegboard bins are a great way to organize small items in your house. They’re inexpensive come in different sizes and colors, and you can customize them to fit any space. Here are some of my favorite ways to use pegboard bins for home organization.


Crafts are fun, but they can be messy, expensive and even dangerous. You may find it rewarding to do crafts with your child or grandchild, but keeping supplies organized makes the experience much more enjoable

Whether you’re working with popsicle sticks, feathers, sea shells or any number of crafting materials, keeping them organized in pre-labeled pegboard bins is a fabulous way to keep track of things. This same storage also works well for everything from hot glue gun sticks to rubber stamps and other tools.

Office Supplies

Pegboard bin organization works very well with office supplies. You can buy bins specifically designed for this purpose, or you can use any type of bin that suits your needs.

If you have a lot of different types of pens, pencils, and markers that need to be stored together in one place, consider using pegboard hooks as an alternative storage method. You might also want to keep track of other office supplies such as staplers and tape dispensers on pegboard hooks as well!


Hardware like nails, screws, and bolts can be kept in a bin on the pegboard. Nuts and bolts are also good candidates for this type of storage because they’re easy to misplace if you don’t have a place to put them.

Small tools like screwdrivers, pliers, wrenches can be stored in small bins with other small tools so that they’re easily accessible when needed. If you have any paint brushes or rollers lying around then find some space for them on one of your pegboards as well!

You don’t want to lose track of your hammer or chisel either–this is why I recommend keeping these items in their own dedicated bin so they stay safe while still being easy enough to access when necessary (your toolbox probably isn’t big enough).

Sewing supplies

A pegboard is a great way to organize your sewing supplies. It’s perfect for sorting and storing threads, needles, fabric scraps and patterns.

Thread: If you have multiple spools of the same color thread, they can be organized on hooks or bins with labels that match their color. The same goes for other types of yarns such as crochet or knitting needles–they should be sorted by size and stored in labeled bins on the board.

Sewing needles: Store these in small containers that hang from pegs so you’ll always know where they are when you need them! You could also use a larger container that has several compartments inside so each type (straight pins vs safety pins) has its own space within one container rather than having multiple separate ones lying around everywhere else in your home office area; this will help keep things tidy while still keeping everything easily accessible when needed during projects such as sewing curtains together or making clothes from scratch using patterns downloaded onto computers via internet connections!

Everything else: Consider additional bins for everything from thimbles to spare buttons and more.

First aid supplies

A first aid kit is a necessity if you have children or pets, and it’s also a good idea to keep one in your car. You can organize these supplies with pegboard bins by keeping them in one spot so that they’re easy to find when needed.

Include items like bandages, antiseptic wipes and pain reliever (or whatever else you think would be helpful). Make sure to include specific items for your family’s needs–if someone has allergies or asthma, for example–and make sure any medications are kept separate from food products in case of accidental ingestion by another member of the family (like toddlers!).
