Why a Face Mask Holder?
Do you find yourself always looking for your face masks and not having one particular place to keep them? I’ve been finding ideas to help
- keep our clean masks “clean” & easy to find once they are washed.
- Make it easy for the family and especially for the kids to get to (they need to be able to find them easily when heading out).
- If your kids are in school, you’ll probably want to make it super easy to find and keep their masks safe and clean.
Find these ways to store our face masks have proven to be a help for us. I’m sharing some of these ideas that’s been helping us and I do hope they’ll help you too.
Please Note: I’m not here to debate whether or not one should wear a face mask. But if you do wear them, consider these few storage and holder ideas below.
Face Masks Holder & Storage Ideas
1. A Small Basket – Have a special “face-mask” basket somewhere close to the entryway/mudroom where the family (and especially the kids) go in and out. It maybe even more helpful to have two baskets, one for putting dirty masks and another for clean ones.

2. Pouches & Pencil Cases– This is a great idea for kids heading out to school. A simple pouch or pencil case can be used to keep their masks in their backpacks. If they need to change out their masks, they can do so easily. A mom, parent or other person could simply use a pouch (purse) that’s wide enough to fit into their other tote or purse.
I love the designs of them all and also the fluffy-ness of some of them.

Ideas of pouches in Kids backpacks
Here’s another way I use the pouches in the entryway.
Our kids have these baskets for their summer gear (sunglasses, small purses, hand sanitizers, etc.) which changes into small winter gear (gloves, mittens, hats, etc.) during the cooler months. I haven’t yet put their pouches in their bins but that’s another idea. I think once I get the entryway going, I’ll probably put some pouches in their baskets. So far, they’re kept them in their backpacks (they are homeschooled but have these new backpacks for if we head out to a field trip or so). I placed one pouch in the basket to show you how you could store them.
3. Ziploc Bags – A Ziploc is ideal for carrying masks in your purse or bag. If you feel you don’t need anything fancy, that will definitely do. In fact, I use Ziploc bags for carrying masks all the time. I use tiny sandwich ones inside my purse and inside the kids bags. I also keep a set of scarves in a larger Ziploc bag.

4. Sterilite Bin (For the car) – Keep a small storage bin in your car with extra face masks for everyone. If you are heading out, and forget to grab masks from home, then you’ll have some to use that’s stored in the car.
5. A Tote or Bag – A tote or just a bag to dump everything in works well too. I’ve been keeping this in the entryway until I could get things organized. We’ve been moving items around for better jacket and shoe storage plus overall functionality, especially as the weather is getting cooler. Therefore, this very wrinkly tote bag has been working well util I move them to a basket of some sort (like the first idea).

Optional: Dresser Drawers – You could also store the masks in your clothing drawers. In fact, that’s what I did first when everything first began. I stored everyone mask(s) in one of my top drawers. But then I found it rather hectic to go back and forth up the stairs if we forgot to grab them from upstairs before we needed to head out the door.
If you use face masks, have you looked into places to store them yet? What are some other ideas you have?
