Why search all over the house for that one single battery you need it, right? Or dig through more than 10 packs of batteries? Well, this is what I did on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day when I was putting batteries in some of the Christmas presents. I found many packages of the same size battery that had been opened and only one or two batteries having been removed. I had to find a solution. I did just that! While my fiance was cleaning our detached garage, he came across a storage box (probably some sort of tackle box). I scooped it up and brought it into the house. I organized our batteries. They are no longer just thrown into a plastic basket (still in their original packaging).
This is the packages that we had...
This is our nicely organized battery collection. Now I can see what we have and don't have as far as alkaline batteries.
I will give you one piece of advice...that I didn't know until I asked my fiance (good thing he's older and wiser, I guess). Don't place the 9-volt batteries tops against each other. It will cause a short circuit between the batteries that will produce heat.
