When you read about storage solutions it often involves parting with money at a large department store in a shopping mall. However, this does not have to be the case. A healthy dose of ingenuity and lateral thinking will often provide the answer.
I have a mobile hanging rack which I often use for hanging freshly-ironed clothes or to finish off drying clothes. 3 years ago I wrote a blog post about how I used and stored the rack.Here is a previous photo of it.
This proved not to be an ideal solution as it could be tricky to store and remove the various pieces. However, I persevered and made the best of it.
However, a few weeks ago I managed to rip the bag when extracting the pieces.
This led me to reconsider my storage method and I realised that I had removed a couple of item which had previously been stored on the floor of the wardrobe and I had some spare space.
A quick dig around in the workshop downstairs yielded results.
This container was a heavy-duty drum with tap which we once used for water storage. GMan had removed the tap and cut the top off sometime ago and it was being used for storing some bits and pieces which I re-homed to another container. I cleaned this one and it now fits neatly on the floor of the wardrobe and the components of the hanging rack are much more accessible.
