Storage Ideas

January 10. 2024

Hi! I’m Sayaka Minami, a Japanese minimalist, and a professional organizer.

The MUJI polypropylene storage series is top-rated among Japanese professional organizers.
In this episode, I am introducing the features and benefits of these products and show you how I use them at home.


What Is Polypropylene?

Polypropylene is a type of plastic that is used in a variety of everyday products because it is extremely lightweight and easy to produce.
It is also strong, making it an ideal material for storage cases.

Why MUJI Polypropylene Storage?
Various manufacturers sell polypropylene storage cases, but the MUJI brand maximizes storage space. Their storage design is also simple with a smooth surface.


1. MUJI Polypropylene File Box

This product is a “File Box,” but it can be used for a wide variety of purposes.
I like to use these in the kitchen and living room.

The small holes make it easy to hook your fingers into and pull them from hard-to-reach places.
A variety of widths and sizes are also available.

2. MUJI Polypropylene Magazine File Holder

In the kids’ room, I use the Magazine File Holder to hold their school supplies.
You can also put it front-side-back when you don’t want to show your messy paperwork or want to store it on a shelf.

3. MUJI Polypropylene case

The Muji Polypropylene Case is recommended for closets and shelves.
These come in a variety of sizes and can be stacked and combined.
By attaching casters, they can be moved easily, which is convenient for cleaning. They can also be used as an office side table.

MUJI originated in Japan.
Birthed in a country with compact houses, MUJI offers a variety of simple and convenient storage items.
They can be used in infinite ways, so you can continue to use them even if you move and use them for a lifetime.
I recommend checking them out.
