Pictured with the storage tins and boxes, ready for the big spring clean, is Helen d’Albert of Write Here in Shrewsbury’s High Street.

Spring has officially sprung and so the time for a big clean-up at home has arrived.

We have all watched the ‘de-cluttering’ programmes which abound on our TVs at the moment but for those of us who cannot bear to be parted from treasured possessions – or just plain old junk – help is at hand.

A huge array of distinctive tins, all embossed with bright and quirky lettering, is now on sale at award-winning Shrewsbury shop Write Here.

These storage boxes are specially designed to meet a range of needs – from filing recipes and photographs to keeping medicines safe, saving the odd coins or collating art materials. Whatever their use, they can definitely make tidying up more fun.

And of course the best-selling ‘Man Tin’ is taking pride of place on the shelves of the High Street shop.

A perfect size for any number of 'things', this tin is an ideal gift for any man, especially one who likes to keep a collection of pointless stuff.
