How to Store Light Bulbs of All Kinds

Staying organized can be difficult enough for busy homeowners. However, when it comes to storing spare light bulbs, the task can be even more frustrating. Light bulbs are fragile, especially CFL and conventional incandescent varieties. This means you will need to go the extra mile in order to keep them safe until they can be used. At Mr. Electric, we offer premium commercial and residential electrical services for property owners in Katy, Texas and surrounding Houston area neighborhoods. Our certified electricians enjoy helping our clients find ways to maintain their electrical system, devices and accessories, and we want to do the same for you. 

Bubble Wrap 

Those who live in larger households may want to keep their bulbs closer at hand when storing them. It may not be as convenient to pack up light bulbs and store them in faraway locations that are difficult to access. If you choose to keep your light bulbs in a drawer, shelf or open bin, then consider packing them away with bubble wrap. Doing so will make them less likely to be damaged when in storage. Be careful to package the bulbs alone, as they may break if contact is made with surrounding items. 

Egg Cartons 

While egg cartons will not be the best choice for larger bulbs, small lights can be safely contained inside leftover Styrofoam egg cartons. Not only will they provide a great barrier of defense, but it offers a unique way to recycle used materials. 

Plastic Bins 

Plastic bins are extremely versatile, affordable, easy to find and simple to use. They can help you store larger light bulbs and fixtures in areas that are out of the way, such as hallway closets, garages, attics and basements. Choosing clear bins will make it that much easier to see what is inside your bins, so you do not get your lightbulb container confused with other stored household items. 

Christmas Ornament Organizers 

Since Christmas ornament organizers come in a variety of sizes, and are already designed for holding extremely fragile items, they are perfect for light bulbs. They provide separate compartments that will help prevent them from bumping into one another while being stored. While they may be difficult to find in the middle of summer, ornament boxes are for sale at most hardware and big box stores throughout the holiday season.
