Frame Storage — Store-bought Solutions To Inspire You
- BY Ryan
Whether you find yourself going on one too many searches through your home to hunt down where you left your glasses or you need quick ideas on how to store eyewear, this post aims to help. As a bonus, many of these store-bought storage solutions for glasses could be given as gifts for Father’s Day, birthdays or other occasions. We all have different tastes, with some of us liking whimsical or creative ideas and others preferring more traditional storage solutions, but hopefully, you’ll find at least one idea that will inspire you to keep an eye out for frame storage that suits your style.

Bend It Like Goony
Goony Modular Holder/Tray www.Cube Shops.com $24
Is it a sculpture, pronged holder or mini tray? The answer is that it’s all three combined into one creative storage idea. Sculpt the “Goony” to suit your mood and storage needs. For example, the “fingers” also hold items such as notes and photos and a tray-style configuration could give you a different type of container for your eyeglasses and/or watch or jewelry. Choose from pink, green, yellow, black or white.

Apartment Therapy.com suggests giving clear-pocketed, hanging shoe storage bags new uses — and of course, these little pockets are excellent for storing eyewear! Give each pair of your prescription or non-prescription glasses and sunglasses its own “home” pocket and you’ll still probably have plenty of room in your hanging organizer for cases, cleaning cloths and other eyewear accessories.
