Even if starting out living on your own means staying here and there you still need good storage. Here are some lightweight, stackable, foldable ideas to take care of your stuff both when you’re sticking around and when you're not.
The clothes-rack life hack
A clothes rack keeps your clothes organised, well-aired and in good nick, and makes it easy to choose what to wear. Also, castors make it perfect for moving around – or moving to a new apartment, for that matter.
Living in a box
Sturdy, see-through boxes are perfect for keeping all your belongings packed, but still accessible. Find what you want by just looking at them. Being stackable, they're also ideal for a height-adjustable workstation.
Quick fix for more clothes storage
Short of wardrobe space? These zip cases in durable synthetic fabric make it easy to keep clothes, bedlinen and towels handy – and they are compact enough to easily stow away under a bed, or on top of a cupboard.
A bag for a full day out
This spacious tote bag has many compartments, so it’s no trouble bringing a laptop, training gear, lunch box and whatever else you need for the day. Carry it any way you like – as a backpack, on the shoulder or in the hand.
Shoe racks for a tidy hallway
Shoes all over the floor make coming and going more difficult and dangerous. Stop your clogs from clogging up the space with this foldable, stackable shoe rack. It sets up in seconds and holds three pairs – or six, or nine. Tuck in three more underneath.
