I'm a woman, but I am the go-to for my male friends to ask fashion advice.

First step is to find a cut of jeans that fits you well. The initial hunt is a pain, but I promise it will be worth it. Do not settle. Take a woman to help you find the pair that works the best (or even a guy with good fashion sense). Don't be afraid to spend a little more because quality denim lasts a really long time. Once you find a pair of jeans that work there is a really good chance that the same cut will come in different colors. Don't get too crazy with the washes. Get some staple colors, like dark denim or black. You can wear these throughout the week and nobody will be the wiser. You can't do that with some crazy acid wash or boldly stitched jeans. Try not to wash them too often. Lots of people pop their denim in the freezer to "wash" them. This helps preserve the color, and increases the life of your jeans. Never dry them in the dryer. If you are on a tight budget, go to Sears/Kohls/JC Penny and find a cut of Levis that look good on you. You can also go to Nordstrom Rack and find great deals as well.

Okay, next step. Find some t-shirts that fit well. Again, there are so many different types of cuts for shirts. Some are long, some are slim, some look fine when it's on the hanger, but look like a tent when you put it on. Don't be afraid of color. Lots of guys just opt for black but color is nice too. To the guys who wear black shirts all the time, do an experiment. Where a nice burgundy or heathered blue shirt one day. I guarantee you will get compliments. Target actually sells really nice plain crew cut or v-neck shirts under their Mossimo line. They come in great colors and fit well. I think they are about $10, which is really good. If you are nearing 30 I would shy away from graphic tees. They are fine if you are at a bbq with friends, but not for a date. I also recommend you not machine dry your shirts. I have something like THIS and it works very well. Whatever shirts your decide on, don't think that they will look nice forever. I tend to swap my tees out once they look beat. Air drying prolongs the color, but it can only go so far. If a shirt is too faded or stretched, it goes to gym duty. I then replace it with a new one. I think I average a new shirt every month or two at about $10-20.

Now that we have t-shirts covered, you should also get other tops. Keep it simple (this is where the mannequin can help you find combinations that work and give you ideas). You can find a nice button up or two, and even a light jacket or sweater. Things that are more accessory than full blown coat. A quality hoodie can even fit the bill, so long as it isn't too bulky.

Shoes... this is really important and often overlooked. Your shoes should match the cut of your jeans. If you find a slimmer cut, you don't want to get really bulky shoes. It will make you look like a little kid. Wear slimmer shoes, like some classic Vans or Converse. You can even dress things up. Wear your jeans with some nice leather shoes (again Nordstrom Rack is awesome). Just look how good Daniel Craig looks here. You can even have some fun by adding a little color. The main takeaway is that you don't have to wear your old, busted up DCs that you had in college. Branch out of your comfort zone and try some boots or wing tips. You also don't have to spend a ton of money if you shop right.

So, now that you have revamped your look a little, you need to address your hair and face. You don't have to get a hair cut every other day, but you should really try to keep everything looking neat and in place. You shouldn't have your back hairline growing down your neck and into your collar. It just looks like you are lazy. If you can, get a personal trimmer/groomer and figure out how to trim it yourself. Nose hair... nobody likes to see it. I was talking to a friend this weekend and his nose hair was showing full force. Get a pair of little scissors for less than $5. Same goes for eyebrows. I don't mean wax or pluck, but simply trim with they look like this. Also... Moisturize! People, men and women, tend to look old if they are not properly hydrated. Moisturizing is a combination of drinking water and wearing a good face cream. I like Kiehls, but that is a little pricey. You can also get some quality stuff at Walmart or Target. These little things make a guy look so much better imho.

Pack light. Also learn to make a skivvy roll it saves a lot of space and makes packing so much easier. You can stuff your stuff like a toothbrush, razor deodorant etc in them. My usual rule of thumb for skivvies/undershirts & underwear is 7-10 days on the longer voyages. For you, I'd pack 4 to 5. Including the pair that you're wearing that's enough to cover ~50% of the voyage and you'll most likely have the ability to wash clothes onboard. If not wearing a pair for another day probably won't kill you. I also usually bring medicine in labeled plastic bags. Stuff like cold and flu medicine, painkillers and headache medicine (non-narcotic), anti diaherria medicine, seasickness pills, allergy medication, and multivitamins. I write the name of the medicine, its purpose, and the dosage on a plastic bag. When I'm done I toss them in a skivvy roll and roll them up. Bring 2 pairs of "street clothes" make the pants different (ie one jeans, the other khaki or shorts etc) you'll be wearing these around the ship when you're not working or when you're off the ship, I usually also pack some gym shorts to lounge around the ship in or workout. Bring a towel, earplugs, and a sleeping mask. Cigarettes if you smoke.

I'd bring a flashlight (one with a clip that you can put on a hat), knife, multitool, utilikey, one to two pairs of decent workboots, spare batteries, and maybe a magnetic worklight as far as work stuff goes. Coveralls if your ship doesn't provide them. Oh and a small notebook that can fit in your pocket and 2 decent pens. A watch with a barometer is a huge plus. Bandanas/Handkerchiefs are really useful as well.

As for entertainment stuff I always bring my kindle loaded with books. You can checkout /r/FreeEbooks for free books or you can always acquire some #Bookz on the undernet. If you had a switch I'd bring it. I usually bring a laptop that has all my movies and games on it. You can buy a little strip of slip resistant matting that you can place under your laptop. I've only had seas that rough once where I'd ever really need it, but better safe than sorry. A harddrive is good too, at least 1 TB.

On miscellaneous things I bring, I bring a closet shoe organizer on board like the one linked. I use that to organize a lot of my clothes and save space. I used a sharpie to mark out spots for stuff like socks, underwear, etc. But you can always fit a skivvy roll in there. I usually use the upper row for stuff like my EDC, and my medicine storage so the door doesn't hit the top. I also might bring a USB fan, paracord, and a plugin USB hub. I'll use the paracord to suspend the fan next to my face to blow on me. I'll also use it to adjust the pocket organizer.

Some packing tips are to wear your boots to the ship, sneakers are much easier to pack.

Since this is an internship I'll assume you want to be hired on later. Ask tons of questions, work hard, be sociable and likeable, and never be late. I know plenty of hardworking guys everybody hates because they're dickbags. When I first started I was a little lazy and incompetent but everybody liked me because I was sociable and not a dick and at least tried. You can be lazy, or a dick, not both.

Edit: QoL stuff is pretty nice, stuff such as a blanket, hydro flask, or seasoning is pretty nice to have sometimes. During a particularly cold voyage I had a thick heavy fuzzy blanket which was awesome. Having ice cold water when you're in a 160 degree engine room can be pretty nice. Some lawry's seasoning salt when your cook sucks is always welcomed.

Edit 2: SUNGLASSES. PACK A PAIR OF POLARIZED SUNGLASSES. The reflection off the water can be pretty intense sometimes.

u/i_am_ms_greenjeans · 5 pointsr/guineapigs

Hi and welcome. To save myself some time, I'm going to copy/paste. So, some tips. If you haven't, check out Guinea Lynx to get great information on guinea pigs and guinea pig care.

If you are looking for a cage, I usually recommend Midwest Habitat or you can find a C&C at Guinea Pig Cages Store. You can also build your own C&C using these Grid Shelving Pieces, and purchasing the coroplast at either a sign shop, big box home improvement store, or order online.

Guinea pigs need a friend, a roomy cage, plain, boring, green food pellets (since these are young pigs under six months of age, they'll also need Alfalfa hay & Alfalfa hay-based food), fresh veggies, and fresh water.

I'll put some additional tips & tricks next, as a way to get them comfortable with you. If you have any questions, please let me know.

So, these are just some general suggestions to get things started. This subreddit is a bit deceptive because you see piggies who are happy & comfortable in their settings. It certainly does not start out in that manner. You're in the "long game" for now, and with patience and practice, you'll start seeing some progress in a month or two.

  1. Put them on a schedule. They'll figure it out soon enough, and will come to the cage edge to see you.
  2. Guinea pigs love food, so the fastest way to their heart is via their tummies. Whenever you see them, have snacks available. Make sure the pieces are small, as they are small critters, and you want them to come back for more. In the beginning, start simple. Offer small pieces of Romaine or bell pepper (start with green, then in two weeks introduce a different color). Sit near their cage, talk to them, let them smell you, give them a chance to get to know you.
  3. Lap time. Use a cuddle sack to collect them from the cage. Collect one pig, transfer to a towel or blanket, go get the second pig. For as long as they need, have lap time be a "together" activity. They'll be more content if they have a friend. During lap time, offer something very special - like parsley or cilantro. While they munch, you figure out how they like to be touched, as each pig has different preferences. Do they like chin rubs? Cheek rubs/massages? Nose rubs/massages? Forehead rubs/massages? Most pigs do not like being touched on their backend, so keep that in mind.
  4. Floor time. Floor time is a great way for them to get some good exercise, and also for you to participate. The easiest way is for you to sit on the floor with them during floor time. Offer their usual snacks, so they come to you. Eventually they should climb onto your lap to say "hi" and get a snack from you. For floor time, you can protect your floors/carpet by using a layered system - put down a shower curtain liner, on top of it (depending upon how long floor time will last) you can put down some puppy training pads, and then towels or blankets. If it is less than an hour of floor time, you can skip the puppy training pads and just use towels or blankets. If you want them to run more, don't put down any pigloos, hideys, or boxes. Allow them to get comfortable with floor time before adding those features so they get the idea they are supposed to move around and not hide. Other things you can try - paper bags (my girls pee/poo in paper bags, so I don't usually give these to them), oatmeal containers with the bottom cut out, toilet paper rolls stuffed with timothy hay, etc. You want to give them some sensory experiences just keep in mind they'll chew on stuff, so don't give them anything potentially dangerous.

    Keep in mind that they will respond to whatever you call them. I have a pig named "Mocha" but from early on we called her "Mo-Mo" and that is now the name to which she responds. Yes, your piggies will eventually learn their names and come when you call them. Good luck! If you have questions, you can post on the subreddit, on the chat, or feel free to DM me. We want you to be successful. :)

I wouldn't worry about soaking before you get home. Just get it home then wash it thoroughly. Best you can do between use and wash is air dry, with sun exposure if possible.

Anyways, wrote this for someone else... Copy/paste for you:

I grew up outside the first world for the most part, so washing by hand was a bit more natural to me. It's a bit of work, but a lot cheaper than paying for laundry, and much more convenient than traipsing off to the laundromat after every class. I've done this in a kitchen sink as well as a bathtub, so I know either will work. Also, I'd wash all the rest of your bjj clothes (undergarments, spats, rashguard, etc) at the same time. No point in letting them sit around sweaty.

OK, the first thing you're going to need is to get it soaked through with soapy water. Put the plug in the sink (everything applies the same in the bathtub, use whichever you prefer) and fill it up about 4-5 inches. Add the soap to the water and dissolve it in there. I'd use cool/cold water unless you're trying to shrink your gi. Add your bjj items one at a time starting with the gi jacket (it's the thickest piece). You want to make sure everything gets entirely saturated with soapy water-you should be able to tell by touch when it is. Just shake it around, rub it against itself a little, etc.

So you've gotten everything soapy-let it sit for a little-maybe 10 minutes. Then go and start hand washing your underthings, then your pants, then top. Google for instructions on hand washing, it's the same thing, you just are working with tougher material (ignore any instructions about 'hand wash only' items-washing delicates is a separate thing, nothing you're doing here is delicate). Basically you swish it around, scrunch it up, expand it, have it run against itself and the other items in the sink. You'll get the hang of it fairly quickly.

Then, empty the sink and fill it with clear water. You'll need to rinse most items 3 times or so, agitating them and squeezing and such to get all the soap out. If you have two sinks you can use them both here, working in one while the other fills.

Once that's done, wring your items out and hang them up. In the sun is best, over tile is good if indoors, or lay a towel or something to catch the drips. If your climate is cool and humid you might need a fan or the like to get enough airflow to dry them. Also, you almost Certainly will need to turn the gi inside out after 12 hours or so if you're not leaving it outside to dry.

I've used with some thick plastic hangers both indoors and out, and I've been pleasantly surprised by how nice 'Charlie's Soap' brand laundry soap has worked, but any should work fine.

Don't worry too much about ruining anything-your gi is made of tough stuff. It's your knuckles and forearms that are going to get beat up during this process.

u/MableXeno · 3 pointsr/Parenting

It's probably going to be really dependent on what needs to be prioritized. At 4...she may be able to do some chores with supervision, but obviously I wouldn't rely on her for major tasks that you expect to be done in a timely manner. (I will link a few things, they're just basic Amazon links so you can see what I'm talking about.)

For my house (family of 5) the first thing is making sure EVERYTHING we need for the next day is ready to go. On Sunday nights each kid pulls 5 outfits out with socks and stacks them in their closet in something like this (one kid has one for sweaters, but another has one with smaller cubbies, not sure where it came from or what it's original purpose was but it works fine). This helps us in a few ways. First - clothes are already decided. No take-backs. No crying. No, "BUT I WANTED TO WEAR THE PINK DRESSSSSUGH!" The pink dress can go in the rotation for the next week. Also, you can see what kind of laundry you will need to do for the next week. One of our kids has 3 weeks of outfits before we need to wash clothes...but we can see in her drawer when just one set of clothing is left that we need to focus on her laundry (she's the youngest, older kids often do their own laundry as needed). Also - any special "spirit" week clothes can be picked out in advance. If you realize that you are missing an item for one day you have a good warning and can get it in place in time.

Backpacks packed, lunchboxes in the fridge, everything signed and ready. It may take time to create a habit for a particular time...we were trying to do it in the run-up to bedtime, but it just got too hectic. I started doing it as soon as we were home from school. This way, in the morning you wake up, take care of hygiene, eat, get dressed, pick up your stuff, and walk out the door. My kids eat breakfast at school now so we can literally be ready in 15 minutes if we absolutely had to.

I have this file-folder system on the wall next to the front door. There is a clear pocket in the front...right now I have the school calendar in that. The older kids each have 1 pocket, the younger kid has 3...though technically one is for me to store important papers we may need to refer back to (permission slips that have dates, times, and instructions on them, for example). But when each kid gets home we go through the backpack, homework is started, I start signing agendas, looking over notes, etc. At the end of the homework, everything goes back into the backpack, then the backpack goes by the door. I use tons of 3M hooks to make it easier to keep stuff together. The youngest kid has one for a backpack and another for her jacket. There is one on the side of her bed for pajamas. The big kids have them in their room for hanging headphones and various electronic cables. I would rather have a million hooks than a kid goes, "But I lost it b/c I left it on my bed and then someone washed my sheeeeets!"

I also put these shoe organizers over every door that can handle it. Low pockets for kids, high pockets for parents. It makes it easier to clean (usually) because if something doesn't belong in the room...I am for sure too lazy to walk one single thing across the house. I will put it in this (if it fits) and then once a week (or so) we can take what belongs to us, put it away, or put it in the room it goes in. This way I don't feel like I'm constantly running back and forth all the time. And it's off the floor, so if you decide NOT to deal with it - the house can still be neat without a hassle.

At night - dishwasher always gets run...yes even if it's not totally full (though with a family of 5, that is rare). Because at least in the morning I can empty it while the kids are getting ready for school and now it's ready for the daytime dishes...or I can even put in some big pots and pans that didn't fit the night before and run those so they're ready in time for dinner.

I have a timer on my washing machine. I put the load in with detergent then set it to run about 60-80 minutes before I get home (it's a fancy machine and usually takes at least 90 minutes to do a full load). This way I may hear it buzz just after getting home and can take the clothes out of the washer. So I can always do at least 1 load a day and laundry doesn't pile up too much. I've done soaking loads overnight as needed. I also keep a dedicated bucket in the laundry room so if I need to pre-soak just a few items or kid t-shirts or something I can put them in the bucket with some water and detergent or pre-treater. Then I put the bucket on top of the freezer...b/c I use my freezer every night (I like ice) and it reminds me that those things need to go in with a load.

I do *minor* meal prep. If I am making lasagna I just double ingredients and make two (it's super easy) then cook one and freeze the other. When I go grocery shopping I always buy a jar of sauce and box of pasta or a frozen pizza...this way if dinner gets ruined (like the time a kid turned the temp up while I was in the bathroom) I can have food on the table in 15 minutes or less and we don't have to try and drive out for fast food. If I'm cooking ground beef...I can double or triple it, then portion it into quart size baggies for later meals.

I also plan for 5 dinner meals each week...but have the same breakfast and lunch each week. So I might decide oatmeal for breakfast this week, with turkey sandwiches and a small green salad for lunch (for me at least, the kids again, have switched to school lunches for the most part). Then 5 different meals. Often they tend to share a spice palate or some ingredients so I don't buy a large container of X and then use one portion and have it leftover forever. Then the 2 nights I don't have a meal planned...we can reheat leftovers, get take out, make sandwiches (there is always bread, peanut butter, and jelly) or find something frozen to heat up. This reduces our food waste and makes sure that I don't have a lot of extras in the house that we might not use. I buy exactly 1 onion b/c only 1 recipe needs an onion, for example. If you have a list - it's a lot easier to get exactly what you need. Some of my local stores are also doing grocery pick up now where they get it ready and I just pull up and get handed bags. Most don't charge extra for this for now. But a few do - but sometimes the few bucks are worth not having to spend an hour in the grocery store. You can use that hour at home for something else.

I find trying to create a hard and fast schedule only seems to make me frustrated if I don't accomplish something or get behind. So being organized about the tasks I need to do helps create a less stressful schedule. Does that make sense? And sometimes...yeah, the laundry needs to be done, but just doing this one load tonight before bed will mean we have clothes in the morning and I have some time to work out how to get the rest of it taken care of.

u/piecesmissing04 · 7 pointsr/LifeProTips

I have moved countries 4 times now. What I usually do is sell off as much as I can to have money to buy the basics in a new country/state.

Like that I save on cost of transporting furniture and so on and instead invest that into things like a sofa bed and table, kitchen stuff.

It’s not easy but it avoids unnecessary costs.

Basics I try to buy fast are:
Sofa bed or a good air mattress (Amazon has pretty good ones for under $100, I have this one air mattress ) - if you can buy a sofa bed as it doubles way better as sofa to sit on during the day sofa ikea has good options sofa bed
Foldable table (again amazon, they are height adjustable and I can use them as table to prep food, dinner table and couch table , I usually buy 2) table

Most apartments in the US come with walk-in closets so that’s a great plus if not you can get pretty cheap roller wardrobes. A friend of mine has this wardrobe

It’s not much but it helps for the first few months and then over time when you have more money you start buying things like a proper bed, desk and so on.

I always prioritize kitchen appliances as I love cooking and will move the better ones I have but then buy cheap plates and so on.

Hope this helps to get an idea of what’s possible on a smaller budget

It depends on yarn and space and money available.... I would send photos, but I don't have any. I keep an old shelf that I lay across the top of the rack, which makes a nice top.

Skeins work well on the [rack] ( and the bookshelf, they lay nicely. These work well for the big/oversized/super saver style.

I hate the filing cabinet, but it was free/family. It's just heavy (drawers) because they are stuffed.

The toters are nice to large amounts of specific yarn (ie baby yarns)

Oh, and I have under the bed storage, which works well for balled/ball winder lots of yarn as well as hanks and skeins

The rack is nice because you can make it fit your space.

I have heard amazing things about this unit bc it keeps dust out.

I love the pegboard look, but I don't want to wind every hank or skein right away. I have toyed with a section or few of these with a mix of baskets & pegs This is another site that I was looking at....basically any grid wall, and I am totally okay with used... especially when it's cheaper lol

Sorry for so much info, but yeah, it depends on a few things : )

u/whiterabbit108 · 1 pointr/guineapigs

Instead of trying to buy a whole c&c cage kit, you could look for the parts to build one yourself. I'm not sure what stores you have in Australia, but here they sell shelving units with grids like these at places like Bed, Bath and Beyond and Target. Or maybe ordering a pack of grids wouldn't be as expensive shipping wise as a whole cage is. If you can't find coroplast for the bottom, you can use something like a shower curtain, like in this video.

If you are unable to build a c&c cage, I think your best bet would be to make sure you give your pigs lots and lots of floor time so they can run around.

If you'll be back and forth between houses I think the easiest thing for you would be to have a cage at each house.

You will need to use towels underneath the fleece. You need to wash the fleece 3 or more times (for me it's usually more) without dryer sheets/fabric softener so that the fleece will wick moisture. The whole idea is that their pee is wicked straight through the fleece to the towels below. You'll need a little hand broom so you can sweep up their poop daily, but the fleece and towels don't need to be washed for about a week or so.

We had to quarantine our newest pig when we got him because he started showing symptoms of an eye infection the day after we brought him home. We didn't have a second cage at the time so we just used a large box and set it up like a cage for him (it had very thick sides so he couldn't chew through).

It is normal for her to be scared of you. I'm not sure when you got the pig, but I'd give her like 3 or 4 days and then start picking her up and holding her daily. She'll get used to you if you keep at it. Our baby pig doesn't like being picked up out of the cage still, but once he's out he is happy to sit in my lap and be petted. I think that pigs feel much less scared when they have a pig friend to live with.

I made this. The dimensions aren’t perfect but might help see a different way. so just some thoughts. Move things up walls for space. The glass enclosed dresser doesn’t look easily used. Move the desk over into the corner and move the tall dresser were the glass front one is. The chest and case on it are rough and not very functional. I’d get them out at least while figuring everything out. If you can add shelves or cubes above your side table that would add space. They would need to be screwed in. If you can’t then skip that. Hanging laundry baskets or use a shelf with a couple storage bins to toss laundry in. Depending on measurements possibly something like this on the glass front furniture. C&AHOME Cube Storage Organizer, 8- Cube DIY Plastic Closet Cabinet, Modular Book Shelf Organizer Units, Storage Shelving Ideal for Bedroom Living Room Office with Doors, Black shelves with storage cubes, containers or such is another option. Add shelves above the desk. Again bins, tubs, cubes even paper organizers can be used. Dollar stores can give extra options. Don’t consider things exclusive. I needed a closed container to hold chopsticks. I bought a pasta container. Think about how to move things up. Think about how you like things for ease. I like doors but for example some cubes come with or without drawers. Under the bed- I’d consider it storage. It doesn’t look convenient day to day. Under there you want to put this. DampRid FG60FS Moisture Absorber, Fresh Scent, 10.5-Ounce, 2-Pack put reminders in your phone and empty it every few days until you know how much water it absorbs. You replace the crystals every so often. Keep it away from pets. Damp rid will grab tons of moisture but while you’re checking everything out make sure you don’t see signs of a pipe leak. Mold, soft walls, moisture and bad smells pay attention to. Other type cube options but not this brand ClosetMaid 8937 Cubeicals Organizer, 9-Cube, Espresso

Whitmor Storage Cubes - Stackable Interlocking Wire Shelves - Black (Set of 6)

There’s also things like this if you have space. SIMPDIY Portable Shoe Rack Storage Organizer Shoe Box Storage System with Doors, Shoes,Accessories - Black (2x6 with Boots Cube 93x126x108cm/37x15x50In)

Don’t forget what you choose should work for you. So even something like kids toy storage might work better for some. Like this. Tot Tutors WO498 Elements Collection Wood Toy Storage Organizer, X-Large, Grey/Blue/Green/Yellow or this Delta Children Deluxe Multi-Bin Toy Organizer with Storage Bins , Grey/Blue there’s stuff like this. LANMOK 3pcs Hanging Mesh Storage Basket Foldable Space Saving Toy Organizer with 3pcs S Hooks for Kids Room Bathroom Wall Balcony Wardrobe

Basically storage needs to go up. Bed drawers don’t work in large rooms so use for storage. Put damp rid out. Make sure no leaks. For me the idea is enclosed. Choose what works for you. Don’t forget if the idea of doors on storage cubes don’t work for you that you can use a curtain to cover it if you don’t want others to see. The idea is finding what works for you. If you move things and have a wall space open buy taller items. I’ve been redoing a smaller space so feel free to ask if you need some other suggestions.

Edit another idea is move that wood dresser to the window like in diagram, glass one next to it and cubes where the wood one is now.

  1. Iron X is a completely different product than Sonax. Iron X is for decontamination and is more for your paint where as Sonax is an actual cleaner that is designed to work on your wheels.

  2. The very best spray bottles you can get for the money are the HDX Widemouth Sprayers.

  3. Check Harbor Frieght for M105 /M205 and use the digital 20% off coupon. You will have to make 2 seperate trips inside but you can use the same digital coupon from your phone.

  4. Foaming guns are a good thing to have. If it is for a pressure washer, make sure you get the short handle with the largest capacity bottle you can get. When you try and put those things on the end of the PW wand, it will spin in the collet and not go where you are wanting it to. This is the one that I have.
    And this is the handle for the unit

  5. Not sure what pads you are referring to but if you are talking about buffer pads, then the best deal flying on what I think are the best pads out there are the Buff N Shine multiple pad pack

  6. I keep the majority of my equipment in a couple of Husky Job Boxes

  7. I keep my pads and MF towels in a couple of these Sterilite Drawer Carts

  8. To keep mold and mildew out of all of my totes and carts, I also throw in some Silica packs

  9. For all of my chemicals and supplies I keep everything on a simple set of Metal Shelving

    Best of luck.

Make sure you have a trashcan, ice, cups and a roll of TP ready to go into the new place on moving day. They come in so handy and it's nice to be able to offer the people helping you move a bathroom and cold water.

As for storage, I'm a stacker. I think if you buy yourself a few of these you'll be amazed what you can fit in them and how little space they take up. Also this could help for storage as well :) Thanks for the contest and good luck on your move! We're movin' on up!

u/WonkyOne · 3 pointsr/breakingmom

Consider something like this, that you can hang within your own reach. (NOT his reach, or it will be emptied in the first minute of the trip!)

Fill each pocket with a different activity/toys/snacks. Go to the dollar store and stock up on things like sticker books, crayons/pad of paper, mini cars, bouncy balls, anything that might keep his interest for awhile that doesn't require your supervision.

I recently did a 12 hour flight with my 2.5 year old (and 4 month old daughter). The very best thing I brought with me (other than the iPad) in terms of entertaining him was a ziplock bag full of miniature cars each individually wrapped in painters tape. Yes it was a bitch to clean up after (lots of little scraps of painters tape stuck to everything in arms reach) but every one of them brought happy "oooooh" "wow" "woah" comments, and bought about ~10 minutes of unwrapping time, plus at least 20 minutes of happily rolling them around on things. So yeah, painters tape!

Also, get external battery chargers for the tablet and the 3ds. (Like this one for example. Http://

Good luck. It won't be easy but you can do it!

u/VarsitySlutTeamCapt · 3 pointsr/BurningMan

my tricks:
Gel manacure before hand is such a wonderful thing! My nails stayed nice and the polish didn't chip at all.

Keeping makeup in a Tupperware in the cooler will keep it from melting or getting weird.

I seem like the minority but I love wearing my long hair down as often as I can, and I found braids are too damaging for my hair so I just stay away from them. Using leave in conditioner after showering kept my hair from getting staticy and crazy.

I have a very large chest and found that putting deoderent under and inbetween them really helps with the boob sweat issue! I also got a tube of this stuff to use in between my thighs to avoid chafing. I tried it out while I was at disneyland for 2 days in 100F weather and It worked like a charm!

This applies to anyone, but I brought one of these organizers last year and it felt like a lifesaver on staying tidy in my tent. I put underwear and socks in one drawer, tights and hats in the next, and other various accessories and costumes in the bottom drawer. It made it so much easier when I would be drunk and stumbling back to camp for a quick change. I also found that trying on and planning each outfit before I arrived to really help too. I don't like to fuss around with what i'm wearing too much when i'm out there so having everything ready to go was so nice.

Canvas Travel Bag - It's a great for traveling! And great for an overnight stay! It's convenient and take less space than a suitcase.

Totoro Power Bank - Does your phone run out of battery quickly? Well, getting a power bank makes it more convenient, and you can usually carry it with you to places without looking for an outlet to charge your phone.

Planner will make it easier to plan out your days and making list of what you need things to get done.

Clothes Drying Rack - If you do not have a place to hang your clothes to dry, then using a drying rack will make it easier.

u/whatsoniasaid · 2 pointsr/clothdiaps

I will share with you my ongoing positive experience with CD'ing.

My husband is the one who got us started. To date, we've spent ~$400 on diapers and supplies. There will be hardly any extra cost on diapers when we have baby #2 (whenever that happens). We started CD'ing when my LO was two weeks old. Our daughter is now almost four months old. We used what disposables we had left over from the hospital for her meconium poops. We never had leaks or blowouts once we started cloth diapering. We started out with thirsties size one duowrap and Osocozy prefolds since she was a tiny newborn weighing 6lbs 3oz.

We wash with Original Tide and hang dry every other day. This is the clothing rack we use to hang the pocket diapers, inserts, and covers: clothingrack!. We sometimes hang dry the prefolds, but if we have extra time we do dry the prefolds on the rack.

Both my husband and I work full-time and manage to handle the small amount of extra laundry from the diapers quite well. We LOVE having the extra money left over in our budget from not having to spend on diapers every week or month. We use our small wet bag and pocket diapers with our 2-3hours spent at the babysitters. We have two large wetbag pail liners we interchange with each dirty load of diapers. Sometimes it would be nice to have a gas mask when the poop smell is overwhelming, but seriously, the smell is nothing compared to the awful chemical smell you get built up from disposables sitting in a bag for a week. I don't miss the smell from when my daughter's newborn days. In fact, the diaper laundry helped keep me occupied when I was home on my three month leave from work.

When the baby starts solids there are plenty of options for dumping the solid poo out. There is the Potty Pail! that hooks up to your toilet. There is no dunking in the toilet (which seems really gross to me!), and there is a plug to dump the water in the toilet. There are also stand-alone diaper sprayers like the many available at Kelly's Closet!. We will be buying the potty pail when my daughter starts solids/100% formula. Oh! I forget to mention if you EBF your baby, you won't need to rinse out the poo. Breastfed poo is completely water soluble! You just throw it in the wet bag and wash when ready! We combo-feed right now and her poos are still mostly runny like an EBF baby.

My daughter is a heavywetter at night (she sleeps 8-9 hours straight), so we are in the process of finding a solution to help her sleep through the night without leaking. Sometimes we use our few AIOs, double stuff pockets, or use a hemp with a prefold. Her diapers are saturated when she leaks. I've read that some people must resort to disposables; hopefully we can avoid it.

The problem I have now is trying not to spend more money on cute diapers/prints! I
would suggest trying a diaper trial from Jillian's Drawers!. You rent what diapers you want per month. You return your diapers and get most of your money back when you're finished! You don't lose very much money AND you can decide whether cloth diapering is right for you.

I sincerely hope cloth diapering works out for you! If not, at least you gave it the college try!

u/JulMit · 1 pointr/InteriorDesign

I really like your suggestions and omg you people are so creative :) I was going to suggest painting the shelves and the dresser as well. I love teal and lime green. They should definitely go for lighter colors. They can check Walmart for a duvet. There were very beautiful designs for back to school.

They should go for lighter color curtains and match them with the furniture and shelves or the bedspread. They can even buy some sheer curtains. They give a more fresh and light sense to any room.

I would also suggest putting away your shoes. You can put them under your bed in a box or inside your closet using a door hanging organizer

And yes, please post the results :)

u/TeleVue · 4 pointsr/UCI

A shower caddy helped alot. Didn't think I'd ever use mine but i ended up using it every day.

Besides basic school supplies, bring your vitamins as they'll help keeping you awake.

Plastic Drawers such as these where you can shove it into your closet to get yourself a few more feet of surface area helped in organization.

3M stick-on-hooks or whatever they're called to hang your stuff and keep them off the ground.

Tupperware or any container to keep your toothbrush and toothpaste neatly together.

I can't remember everything I brought over but basically anything that will keep your stuff together neatly and in a small package. Cups to hold your pens and pencils, tupperware to hold your stuff, ziplock bags. You don't want to be that roommate who drops everything on the floor as soon as they get back from class and have everything messy.

EDIT: The one thing I absolutely loved myself for bringing was a pair of ear plugs and an eye mask yo help me sleep during the day and help me sleep when it's late at night and my roommate continued to study at night. Those two things saved my life.

u/phenger · 6 pointsr/TwinCities

I have a 12 yr old cat that started doing the same thing. There can be many issues that are leading up to this. I'll post more after I'm done eating dinner. Just know that it's absolutely possible (and quite likely) to fix this situation!

Ok, so given what you're saying, this sounds like it's stress based behavior. The first thing that any vet is going to say is:

  • Have at least 1 more litter box than you have cats. If you have one cat, have 2 boxes. If you have 2 cats, have 3 boxes, etc.
  • Try different litter in different boxes. Cats can just up and decide that they don't like a litter if they're stressed (little pricks). Plus, a different litter can be "interesting" to them and help encourage them to use it. It's expensive, but have her give Cat Attract a try.
  • Have litter boxes in different locations in the house. If there's one spot in particular where the cat's going to the bathroom inappropriately, put a litter box there. On a side note, don't go out and purchase an expensive litter box for this test. Go to Target and pick up one of those wide and shallow Rubbermaid storage containers (like this, but a tad shorter) and use that as a litter box.
  • Try both hooded and un-hooded litter boxes. Some cats can decide they want privacy for doing their business (so, hoods are a good thing) while others can feel like they're trapped (hoods = bad) because any animal is vulnerable while they're using the bathroom. Given that this cat is more stressed now, this might be part of the problem.
  • If possible try to designate one spot in the house as "the cat's spot". This was the root of helping our cat get over part of her issues (the other was related to a medical condition). We have a spare bathroom in our apartment, so we made this her room. We put 2 baby gates up at night to confine her there, but give her free run of the house during the day. This helped her feel safe, and the other cat knows to stay away. In your friend's situation, she should keep the baby as far away from this "safe spot" as possible.
  • She may consider looking into a Feliway product to help reduce stress. They haven't worked for us, but I've heard of plenty of people that this worked for.

    I know that she's already spent a lot of mental energy (and at least some money) on this situation, but it will take patience for her to figure out what can change to help her cat cope with this. Cats are very social creatures, and in your friend's case she has a 15 year bond with this cat. She has been this cats only friend and social companion for its entire life, so of course bringing a baby into the mix (who she now has to focus her attention on, and who all home routines now revolve around) stresses the cat out.

    If your friend would like to talk, or if she has any specific questions, shoot me a message. If she wants to talk over the phone, I'd be happy to help Q&A there too. I'm not a vet, I'm not even a crazy cat lady (for one, I'm a guy). I'm just an IT guy with 2 old cats who went through a lot to figure out what was wrong with them.
u/ShricOorenm · 1 pointr/LifeProTips

I forgot to consider you might be out of the U.S, but my tips should still apply.

This might sound obvious but don't overpack clothes. Some of my roommates and myself included brought so many clothes that we don't use and it's just taking up space.

For kitchen use, take your own utensils but just one of each you're not going to need more than that trust me. For kitchen equipment like pans and pots, if your buddys do get in coordinate who takes what so you don't have multiples.

In the beginning it's all about taking what's absolutely essential, if you're able to go home during breaks that's when you bring some more stuff if you have the space.

I'm gonna link some stuff in a moment that you should absolutely consider buying. They're going to be amazon links but big chain stores in your area should carry similar products.

These three products fold so they're easy to pack in any suitcase.

A little bigger so you'd have to buy these once you've settled in but they help if you're low on space.

Plastic is your best friend if you're low on funds and can't buy dressers. I have one in my closet for T-Shirts/socks/boxers and one under my T.V desk for electronics/school stuff

I ship to Mexico sometimes so maybe you can ship to Chile as well.

u/alchemyofelsweyr · 2 pointsr/Rabbits

I go by the rule, not enough room for a cat=not enough room for a rabbit.

I used about 8 of these to make a huge pen that keeps them from all the dangerous wires and chewing the walls, keep them together with zip ties. These are nice because you can do any size, shape and height you want. (I also went and ordered a couple more that I haven’t needed yet because back ups seemed like a good idea if I felt inspired to make it bigger in a whim)

storage cubes

I have this litter box(pricey but worth it)

litter box/feeder

And two of these water dishes because the bottles aren’t as easy for rabbits to drink from. These are non flip and very nice.


Hope this helps.

Edit: I use the storage cubes to make walls but not levels or tops to the pens, I space big enough to frolick in better than having a place to go upwards.

u/[deleted] · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Everyone I know has said you need one of [these.] (

This is more expected, but also very useful.

Similarly, one of these makes life so much easier.

A set of good knives are fairly expensive, but worth it in the long run, as cheap ones break easily.

Oh, and one of these may be helpful!

Would you like a falafel with that?

u/Yokuo · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Well, I used to have a blue one of these, and it held up really well, so I have to recommend it. You can get them cheaper at places like Target, though.

This sort of container is the same concept, more stackable, but less convenient. It's also cheaper in some stores.

If you want to go more fancy, this is a spiffy stackable container. The top is a lid that comes off. My parents have one, and it's pretty nice.

Thanks for the contest!

u/Daheep · 3 pointsr/muacjdiscussion

No pictures because I'm not home, but I have 3 of these little, stackable sterlite containers, 3 large z-palettes, one of these acrylic organizers that fits nicely onto of the sterilite drawers, & a brush bag to hold my brushes that I rarely use but can't seem to part with. Any pressed powder that I could de-pot & place in the z-palette, I did, which really help towards space saving. I also have done multiple de-clutters over the past year, in order to get rid of colors that were too similar or products that I didn't really like/use. I managed to get my collection down to fit everything in these storage containers, including my brushes/tools that I use daily. Everything except my brush bag fits on 1 shelf in my bathroom cabinet (I have built in set up just like this), & I place the bag in a drawer that has a bunch of necessary, but rarely used things, so it's accessible, but out of the way. I share a house with my cousin, so I have a 1 shelf/2 drawer limit with no counter space to speak of. If I can't fit my stuff neatly into my designated space, I have to get rid of things. Unfortunately, I don't have a proper vanity; I have 7 dogs & their beds/crates take up all the spare space (& then some) in my bedroom. It's a sacrifice I'm more than happy to make.

u/GummyTumor · 1 pointr/learnart

I keep most of my pens, pencils, airbrush equipment, markers, inks, and smaller items inside these, I like the black ones, and the larger/oddly shaped items like spray paint, gesso, palettes, and acrylics get tossed into these folding canvas boxes you can find pretty much anywhere now. I can fit one of each side by side on my shelves and they keep everything neat and organized. I have 4 of the canvas containers and 3 of the Sterilite drawers along side all my art books and video games on these dinky waist high shelves I got at Target. You'd be surprised how much stuff you can cram into them.

My drawing desk is just a smallish dinner table I bought for $10 bucks, best deal ever! On it, I keep a rotating pencil holder from Office Depot that holds my brushes, rulers, and nib holders. I also have a few jars of water for water coloring, two lamps, and some of those wooden hands/mannequins for still lifes on there. I nailed some nails to the side of the table to hang a pencil case filled with the essentials for when I'm traveling or want to paint/sketch outside, I also have some nails for artist's tape, my heat gun, and a dust brush.

I generally don't work on paper larger than 9x12, so most of my pads of paper and sketch books go right in my shelf standing up.

I can't stand working in a messy studio or losing any of my supplies, so having multiple drawers and boxes where I can just throw things into and sort them out later is perfect for me. I really recommend the Sterilite drawers. They have them at Target and Walmart and come in different colors.

u/wow-so-tacky · 6 pointsr/guineapigs

I would suggest a C&C cage as they are very customizable and relatively cheap. A 2x4 C&C cage is pretty standard for two pigs. If you don't mind a bit of DIY work, you could build the same cage yourself for about 60% of the cost, as well as make it larger at 2x5. It's quite easy to do.


$23.49 - Set of 23 Grids and Connectors

$22.98 - 48"x96" Sheet of Coroplast (Should be available in-store to avoid shipping costs)

Your choice of bedding. C&Cs cages are often paired with fleece.

Another option would be a Midwest Habitat which is slightly smaller than a 2x4 C&C but acceptable. You could also link 2 of them together for more space.


Also, here's a pretty in depth video (The C&C part starts at 3:44) by LA Guinea Pig Rescue about various types of cages. They also use and recommend C&C cages.

Your closet sounds similar to mine.

We bought these and they work great and fit on the shelves quite well. Perfect for jeans! I can fit 6 pairs of my jeans and my husband can fit 4 of his. He’s a bit taller than me.

They’re also good for sweaters and long sleeve shirts. I purchased a smaller size for tees and tanks.

There is room to hang clothes under the bottom shelf in our closet. Instead of hanging clothes I put a shoe rack there and a low and kinda wide plastic set of drawers.

We already had our shoe rack, but it’s similar to this.

My plastic drawer set is one piece, but the size of like two of these put together. (I found mine at TJ Maxx and haven’t seen another one in store or online.)

Something like this may work well for you too.

u/Minatox · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

So after a quick search I saw these which are really neat, and if you wanna display I saw these nice shelves, also I think the ones you liked are good too even if its plastic here are some slightly cheaper ones in case you decide on those.

If you have the space, the best things are these ! They’re cheaper than an additional cage, and you can kinda build your own shape out of the different sections.

u/ToesInHiding · 2 pointsr/Rowing

Three options TO WASH:

  1. wash it alone on delicate cycle.
  2. wash it by hand. Woolite makes excellent delicate detergent. Rinse it really well and then very gently squeeze the water out — be careful to avoid squeezing where the logos are.
  3. wash it in a delicates bag like these with other workout clothes of similar colors. Warm cycle only. Never hot water.

    TO DRY:
    Lay flat. I really like these for sweaters, unis, and other things that should dry flat so as to avoid stretching the shoulders in weird ways.

Okay so maybe 6 months ago my aunt got a cold that would not go away. She went into the doctors and after many tests she was diagnosed with cancer and given about 6 months. We all had been hoping she'd make it past christmas, but we got word yesterday she's about to pass. Things have been getting worse and worse but now she's unconscious, non-responsive and her vitals are dropping. We thought she'd pass yesterday, but last we heard she was still just out, her vitals are still really low, but she's kind of hanging on. I didn't get to see her before because it was sudden and we've kind of been trying to give her husband and kids time with her, ya know. I know she's been in a crazy amount of pain, so I almost hope she passes sooner rather than later so she's finally at peace...

Sudden change of topic and on to something less depressing! Since husband isn't buying me a christmas gift (and lets be honest, no one else is either) I got myself this nail polish holder, and this one too. Yay for me. Super happy to move out of boxes and into pretty displays.

Hope everyone is doing well. <3

Hand washing is the approach I take with silk as well, and you seem to have a good set up so far. I fill a basin with cool water, squeeze in some Soak or Eucalan (lately I've been using Soak), and swish the detergent around with my hand. Next, I gingerly place the garment into the water and let it soak. I tend to go garment by garment because I'm worried about colors bleeding and whatnot. The garment gets about 10-15 minutes of soak time. During this time I set up a drying rack and nab a clean towel. When the soak time is over, I lay the garment on the towel on a flat surface and roll it up slowly and gently squeeze to absorb water. I then put it on the drying rack to dry.

  • Air Freshener - Fbreeze is best. I had a roommate that used axe body spray as air freshener. Fuck him.
  • Microwave + Mini fridge - It's not fine dining, but super handy to have for late night snacks or when you just can't/don't want to make it to the food court
  • Beds on lofts and a couch/loveseat - we had a couch in our room, which made us a popular hang out spot. With the beds up high there was room underneath for other stuff (couch on one side, TV, fridge, microwave and whatnot on the other)
  • My freshman year, rope lights were very popular. They can be cheap mood lighting.
  • Sticky Hooks - many colleges will only let you use these to hang things. Also, if you want to hang a poster you will want poster hangers

Over the door everything. It's not the most visually appealing look, but it's the best way to maximize your storage space. My personal favorites are the shoe rack and the bathroom organizer. Spend the money for the good ones, not the cheap vinyl shoe bags.

u/devinesigns · 4 pointsr/femalefashionadvice

Ha! My parents did the same thing which is why I took over my own laundry at a young age :)

First, never buy anything "dry clean only" and if you have to, I typically use Dryel.

For normal laundry, only bras with underwire get hand washed. Everything else gets washed on warm/cold, gentle cycle. I use Charlie's Soap laundry detergent- no dyes/fragrance/etc; it's really cheap and gets clothes cleaner than most liquid detergents I've tried.

I hang dry all of my everyday shirts, bathing suits, and anything else delicate (like nice underwear or Spanx). Everything else- cotton underwear, workout clothes, pants, etc- I dry on medium heat.

Since we have limited space, we use these for hang drying:

For shirts-

For everything else-

u/Shovelbum26 · 6 pointsr/Teachers

I actually think having them out in the open but inaccessible is the best solution. I have a hanging shoe organizer that I call "cell phone jail". When I have to take a phone, I actually have the student put it in there (so they're in control of placing it). The thing is transparent so they can see the phone the whole time and know where it is. I think that makes them feel a little more comfortable with it.

I work in a Title I school and a student's phone is without a doubt the most expensive thing they own, and may be the most expensive thing in their home, so I understand their stress around it and try to accommodate that, but they definitely can't have it out in class.

u/SugarSugarBee · 1 pointr/gifs

the easiest way I found was "bunny proofing" anywhere that absolutely needs to have cords, like behind the tv. And keeping other cords out of reach when not in use, like laptop cords and phone chargers.

Behind the TV or anywhere we don't want the bunny to access, we lined the wall with NIC Cubes. These are sold to build little shelves out of, but they are PERFECT for zip-tying together as a barrier to cords, bookshelves (my buns chew on my books), or anything else. I also made their pen out of them, since they're so customizable. This is an earlier pen, but I have since re-arranged it.

/r/rabbits has a lot of good links on how to bun-proof your home and troubleshoot specific issues!

u/Maevora06 · 1 pointr/RandomActsOfPolish

I have one of these they are worth every penny! I have one of these and two home made wooden racks my father in law made me. I love them! It keeps my bottles out where I can see all the colors and they are easily reachable. Best investment ever!! I much prefer it over ones in drawers.

u/Meikami · 2 pointsr/chinchilla

A pack of these guys.

Granted, I'm only feeding two and it sounds like you need a lot bigger bins. But yeah, stackable bins. Maybe one of these too. Like so.

Or, if you're trying to make it look pretty (or like there's no "pet junk" there at all), try getting a piece of furniture like an armoire and storing everything in bins in there, like so or like so.

u/herencia · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

I just graduated from college!

And let me tell you... the following items served me incredibly well!

  • Foldable clothes drying rack

  • Heated Mattress Pad (most dorm beds are Twin XL, so I've linked that size here) and Electric Blanket - you're living on campus now, but you probably won't beyond freshman year. Trust me, invest in this. Electricity is sooo much cheaper than gas. Not to mention powering an electric blanket is way cheaper than heating an entire house/apartment!

  • Shower Tote - easily carry all of your toiletries to the commons shower and toilet rooms!

  • Bath towel wrap - Men and Ladies

  • Basic First-Aid Kit

    Would you like a falafel with that?
u/Zesparia · 6 pointsr/Embroidery

I don't have nearly as nice a setup as others do with trays like this where they card all their floss and organize it by color or number. I keep my uncarded floss in little drawers roughly sorted by color and then card it as I actually use the color - mine has more drawers than this and stays on top of a cabinet, no pictures since I am at work. Once they are carded they get to live free-range in my sewing basket (not my actual basket print but same type and alas i am not at home to show off the pretty teal), where rules are made up and organization doesn't matter. But they don't snag against each other so I'm perfectly happy. Metallic threads stay on their spools in an extra large index card box (I only use the kind on spools so recarding isn't an issue). Finally, variegated threads all live in.... a candy tin. Kinda like your current setup but pretty and oval. I only have a couple carded atm so those live at the bottom and I know where they are.

I have really bad ADHD and a couple other comorbidities so having to maintain a filed system would no joke make me go fucking insane. Digging around to find and compare shades of colors is fun to me and as long as everything is stored in the one box then I know where they are to pull everything out and gaze upon it.

u/knightjohannes · 1 pointr/wicked_edge

Check amazon for "corner shelves"

Else, Bathroom corner shelf

If you have little counter space, your only option is up. A corner shelf might just work wonderfully.

If your bathroom has a closet, expand on it's storage with a shoe storage unit. You don't have to use those for shoes! Good luck.

u/CourtingEvil · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

I can think of a few things that were useful for me (I'm trying not to duplicate):

  • Shoe Organizer - I hung mine on the back of my closet door and stored things in there other than shoes (such as my hairbrush)

  • Bed Risers - With these I was able to put full boxes of things under my bed

  • Mattress Protector - I don't know how many people slept on the mattress in the dorms before me, so this gave me a lot of comfort. Mine was padded, too, so it made my bed super comfy!

    Would you like a falafel with that?
u/castikat · 36 pointsr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

Have you tried wearing something under your work tops? That way you won't have to wash them after every wear.

Also, you don't have to lie them "flat" to dry. You don't want to hang them because the weight will cause odd stretching but you can lie one over a chair, or on a rack like this.

But if you're going to spend money on dry cleaning, why not just buy some more tops instead? And check this time to make sure they hang be hung to dry or can be put in a dryer.

u/Dracomies · 1 pointr/VoiceActing

You know what would also work. And I'll confirm this. Currently buying 2 more.

But I think this would work great.



I'm thinking one by itself, you can use it in three ways. Put a very thick blanket on top of it and you can actually :

  1. Use it as a blanket fort
  2. Put it on top of your desk on the side and it will serve as a way to absorb sound. It's just a huge barrier and it sits perfectly fine on top of a desk


    But I'm thinking.......three would be awesome. And it's $17 each. So if you get three of those. One in front. One on the left. One on the right. And layer it with blankets, it should work. For added sound absorption, add blankets on the top too connecting all three. It could serve as a huge blanket fort or it could basically serve as a huge sound absorber on all areas. I'll confirm this on Wednesday but it should work. This would be cheaper and less hassle than a PVC booth.
u/Platinum_guy · 2 pointsr/airsoft

buy/build a gun rack to sit at the bottom for your long guns, I'd put it where the mortar is sitting just now. They're pretty simple if you can do even basic DIY.
get a pistol rack to go above that, again pretty easy to DIY, you could raise it up or put a drawer underneath to keep all your mags.
next to the pistols have a space to charge batteries and maybe a desktop drawer sized thing to hold parts, not sure how many there are.
get some drawers/shelves/really useful boxes to store your gear next to your long guns.

gust get some lumber from home depot to DIY most of this stuff super cheap or look around, here some examples...
Gun rack
Pistol rack
desk drawer
gear drawers
really useful boxes

how I'd set it up

u/mmmmmbb · 4 pointsr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

You can probably save space by getting a laundry rack like this one. I dry most of my delicates on one of these, and they usually dry overnight.

You can drape things strategically on there to make room for more items. I doubt your shirts have to be perfectly flat - they just need to be supported. I usually drape my shirts over 1 or 2 rungs on my laundry rack and they turn out fine. :)

u/manifes7o · 4 pointsr/streetlightmanifesto

This is the model I've got! I'm not an audiophile by any stretch, but I like it well enough.

Also, YMMV, but I really enjoyed these if your collection winds up taking off. Makes for some lazy-ass wall art.

u/crunkbash · 1 pointr/clothdiaps

Outside. We have small patio area outside our backdoor where we set up a collapsible drying rack. If it gets too windy it can be blown over, but it generally does the job. Our model is pretty close to this one:

There are rods on the interior as well that will still get somewhat dried, but the real sunning benefits goes to the diapers on the top and sides facing the sun. I generally prioritize placement for particularly stained diapers.

u/arbiter42 · 1 pointr/Vive

I use standard 3M wall hooks (large size). They fit the ring on top of the wands perfectly, and the strap on the headset sits comfortably on them as well.

u/dotchianni · 2 pointsr/Parenting

Maybe buy a spin dryer for the clothes. This is the one I have but you can find other brands that I am sure will work just as well. Put it in the bathroom, give her a demonstration on how to run it and wring the clothes in it.

Maybe get a clothes drying rack (this is the one I have and I love it!) for when she is done full-clothes showering and wringing out her clothes.

Then drop the subject of why she is showering with clothes on and focus on the part about leaving huge puddles of water all over the bathroom as that is the real risk here. Someone could slip and fall and end up with a concussion or get knocked unconscious.

u/eukomos · 2 pointsr/firstworldproblems

Wash it all in cold water unless you're sanitizing towels or something similarly specific. Put anything delicate in a mesh laundry bag and hang dry it. Also hang dry everything that is tailored or that you love very much, so jeans are also a hang dry item (they're actually quite tailored). Unless it's a knit, something with stretch in it like a sweater, those you lay flat to dry. Don't toss heavy items in the wash with the delicates, even if they are in the mesh bags. If you have the slightest suspicion that a new item of clothing might bleed dye then hand wash it and check, and if it does bleed then continue to hand wash it separately.

u/WithLinesOfInk · 2 pointsr/femalefashionadvice

We have 1 closet to share between two people- me and my husband. I hang dresses and skirts there. I have a door-mounted shoe rack on the back of the bedroom door, and hooks for purses, scarves, belts and jewelry on the walls in the bedroom. I have a single 3-drawer dresser for pants, shirts, cardigan and, underwear, and my nighstand is a tiny 2-drawer dresser for pajamas and leggings. Our bed has drawers under it where I store some of the sillier things like halloween costume pieces, or holiday gear, as well as bulky things like snow jackets. I had to downsize by about half when I moved into this place and I've never looked back!

u/Lifeguard_Maura · 3 pointsr/Makeup

I dont have anything too cute but they its simple, clean, and organized.

I am lacking in Palette holders but for my small eyeshadow trios/singles, lipsticks, eyeliners, primers, and concealers I am using two of these:

and then for my everyday basics i use this container from elf. Mine is in white but they have it in black.

Then for my brushes i use another elf container:

and i also use a small mason like jar i got from target for my brushes as well.

u/AlienCatcher · 2 pointsr/InteriorDesign

Unrelated but important. If you keep hanging your shirts like that to dry you're gonna end up stretching the fabric. I recommend getting a collapsable drying rack like this

u/tomorrowdog · 2 pointsr/iastate

I love my Nspire but nobody is going to show you how to use it, you have to be proactive. I got mine the summer before and watched Youtube tutorials.

For the room here are a couple recommendations:

u/Pnk-Kitten · 1 pointr/crochet

I don't wash unmade skeins, but I have read that some people do so in a lingerie bag and it works. If you were to try it, I would recommend washing on the gentle/delicate setting and drying on delicate as well, all in a very small bag. Otherwise with a made product, I just wash on those settings and don't worry about any unraveling unless I did a poor job of making it or the original maker did. The project might feel a bit "slick" to some people, but otherwise I have had success with this.

u/DrDraek · 3 pointsr/Frugal

I hang my clothes up year round, regardless of weather, using one of these: well not that one specifically, you could probably find or even make one of similar design for much cheaper. After the clothes are dry, I like to throw them in the dryer for about 20 minutes on the cooldown setting with a few fabric softeners just to get rid of the stiffness and whatnot. We also have a clothes line for the summer months, but to be totally honest, it's about 20x faster and easier to throw them on the indoor hanger (no need for clothes pins).

u/SmileFirstThenSpeak · 6 pointsr/declutter

She has to be on board with the decluttering, and it’s best if you help her do it rather than doing it for her. If she just has too much stuff, some of it does have to go. Things worth keeping might be best stored in another room if it doesn’t fit in her room, but it’s likely that at least some of it should be thrown out.

In looking for more room to store things, look up and look down. Tall bookcases or shelves. Shelves above the door, window, closet. Under the bed.

Also consider space on the inside of the door. Get a hanging shoe organizer to hang on the door. Lots of small things can be put in the pockets (get mesh or clear plastic so it’s easy to see contents). I’m imagining lots of makeup stored that way would work.

u/RealityRobin · 4 pointsr/declutter

My husband keeps a cable bag too! It's saved the day more than once. But if it's getting too big, it's time to get rid of duplicates... or at least only keeping a 3, 6, and 9' of each kind. I would also split them into two bins; computer and tv/video.

I bought small lidded plastic bins (that stack) to keep everything together. Like this:

I also like to keep things where they are needed and don't store anything non seasonal in the basement. So I have some of these in the office area... one has cables, one has printer ink, etc. The tv/video cable box is in the living room with another one holding rechargeable batteries, etc.

I just don't allow myself to buy more bins... So it has to fit or I have to get rid of something else.

Also, please don't throw away the extras. Most counties offer recycle days where they will take all of your old cables, wall worts, power supplies, etc. Check your local e-waste management website.

u/butidontwannasignup · 30 pointsr/gardening

Those cats look like they're close to pupating. If you want to help them out, get a mesh laundry basket, turn it upside down, and put it over the plant.

They'll pupate on the underside, where they'll be protected from predators and the weather. (You can also move it to a more protected location.) You'll be able to release the monarchs once they've eclosed and their wings are dry.

Type of hamper:

u/LevyWife · 2 pointsr/college

create a separate space to put your not clean but not dirty clothes, maybe a dedicated drawer in your dresser, a storage container, or they even sell things like these at Walmart and department stores that work really well for clothing. if you have a bank account you can go to the bank and ask for a roll of quarters and they'll deduct that money from your account, or they may be able to literally exchange $10 in cash for a roll of quarters, not positive.

u/Truant_Muse · 4 pointsr/femalefashionadvice

I have enough shelving now, but when I was in school I had a cheap shoe rack like this one. Another great option for space saving is an over the door rack.

u/ZenKeys88 · 6 pointsr/lego

Plastic bins are usually the best way to go, no small holes for the tiny pieces to get through.

I realize you probably don't need a 12-pack, I'm just showing you what I'm on about.

If he's an avid builder, you might want to try sorting the pieces into drawers like this:

Makes it much easier to find pieces than endlessly pawing through a bucket of all your bricks.

I have so many questions, guys.

  1. Does anyone have a favorite clothes drying rack? I'm looking at this one right now.

  2. Any recommendations for waterproofing spray? I've got this in my cart. Also, it seems like you can pretty much use waterproofing spray on any type of leather that true in y'all's experience?

  3. For scuff marks that are lighter than the color of the leather, is shoe polish the right solution? If so, where can you buy that type of thing? I'm hesitant to order online because of color matching.

  4. Does anyone have experience with final sale items at Banana Republic? I think something I bought is final sale, but I'm not entirely sure, and I was hoping to return it.
u/LeLexDxD · 1 pointr/oculus

Large Command Hooks

You basically just set up the command hook so that it's tilted (pointing at around 10 o'clock) and then the sensor nicely snugs itself in and conveniently points slightly downward as well

They're also pretty useful for a place to put your touch controllers (learned this one from another redditor)

u/Skullriot · 3 pointsr/TinyHouses

Sure, here is my whole setup for my apartment:
Washing Machine
Pants drying stand
Everything else drying stand
Sock hanger
drip dry hangers
Pants hangers - although I got my hangers at WalMart and they have rubber on the clips

In retrospect I would actualy recommend getting this or the tri-arm rack and this as the big drying rack thing is a bit overkill when you have the sock hanger. You could get two sock hangers and hang them on the side of the shirt rack and dry everything you need in less space without having to fold anything over a bar, causing it to dry slower.

Also in the other thread it was recommended that I use all natural soaps instead of the generic detergent. I think thats it.

I like the washer, overall, it does its cycles so fast that I don't really have time to play games or something requiring concentration. I have been wearing the clothes washed in it for the past week and after the initial stiffness wears off they don't seem any different from a regular wash.

My one complaint is that the hoses are cheap, so I might figure out a replacement for those sometime next month. Also, I had to go to youtube to figure out how to use it properly

u/Teazy · 1 pointr/starbucks

I wash my aprons, workclothes and maybe jeans/darks together. I buy these mesh cloth bags to put my apron in so they don't tangle up. you can buy them from IKEA or amazon something like this. I put a safety pin in the zipper so that way the aprons don't fall out. I also use a japanese wash board to get stains out of my clothes.

These two items are not just for my aprons, but all my laundry and I had them for a few years. I use it for safely washing my delicates or washing some tough stains and they are wonderful.

And more detergent wont help if the stains are tough and stuck on your clothes. You need to scrub the milk stains out.

u/eightysguy · 1 pointr/todayilearned

I use one of these:racks and I got to admit I like it. I put my laundry on it and then put it under a ceiling fan for an few hours then hang it all up. Works great.

u/OSC_E · 1 pointr/pcgamingtechsupport

I second the wiremold recommendation, I used one in the past and it served it purpose well. Also you might look at Command Cord Clips, small plastic clips with an adhesive back to go up walls, desks, etc without having to put holes in things. They breakaway easy if someone trips/snags on the cord (sometimes a good thing) and the adhesive comes off clean when you need to remove them.

u/Chimerain · 8 pointsr/BurningMan

Absolute game changer- hanging shoe organizer with CLEAR windows. best way to keep all your small items like headlamps easily accessible. I will never burn without it again... too much time wasted tearing my tent apart looking for things!

So, I'm moving out (27. First time ever. It's complicated.) and might be taking a room (10*11 ft' maybe?) that doesn't have a closet. Any recommendations on sturdy, functional clothing racks? I started eyeing this one and this last night

Do you mean to say that you have the cable just hanging down from the rear view mirror, or did you at least pinch it along the edge of the ceiling and A-pillar? Because four dollars' worth of 3M cord clips did absolutely wonderfully for my setup... although I did find that Gorilla Mounting Tape works better than 3M's supplied adhesive strips.

u/EpicDerp37272 · 1 pointr/vinyl

What's a good way to hang vinyl on my wall?
I like these, but they're really pretty expensive. Any alternatives?

u/FogWalkerWithaBag · 2 pointsr/TwoXChromosomes

When I would wash by hand I would put them in cold water with maybe like a teaspoon of laundry detergent and let them soak for 20 minutes. And then rinse, roll up with a towel to get the excess water out (don't ring out, it will lose shape faster that way) hang dry, but I know flat dry is better if you can do that ( I actually got this thing to be able to flat dry more stuff). I now use a lingerie bag and put them on the gentle cycle in the washer, but I only use the washer because it's a front load, and I always found top load ones with the agitator in the middle were too rough for it.

u/aaahmanduh · 6 pointsr/Rabbits

u/What_Wait_No · 3 pointsr/AskReddit

A few people are talking about big things like mini-fridges and vacuums and I just want to point out that you should contact your roommate in advance to coordinate those.

A drying rack was really helpful for my roommate and I. In the same vein, some sort of space saver if your closets are tiny.

A good, big reusable water bottle--especially if you plan to drink a lot. I never get hungover.

u/nowhereian · 1 pointr/GoRVing

Honestly, we don't really use the back door much. On our last few trips, we actually put a set of plastic drawers (like this one) in front of the door for a little more storage. It's nice to be able to open both doors for a breeze though.

The front door is far enough away from the bunks that we don't wake the kids up. It also helps to really tire them out. Run around all day, go swimming if you can, etc. Also, we have one of these night light switches down by the floor right next to the front door. It's enough light that we can come in and grab something or see our way to the bathroom without turning on a light.

u/acetrainerelise · 45 pointsr/femalefashionadvice

College student here, used to shitty dorm closets: If you don't mind having to iron things at the change of seasons, I like to keep off-season clothes and things I don't wear much in my suitcase. The suitcase is just sitting there taking up space anyway, and by packing it well (rolling!! roll as much as you can!!! I only fold heavy knits and sweaters) you can fit a lot into a simple carry-on. Multi-pants hangers and multi-skirt hangers are really useful for maximizing closet space, but I personally don't like multi-shirt hangers and find them incredibly inconvenient. I keep all of my jackets on an over-the-door hanger like this and use the basket (mine only has one) to hold my clutch, spare wallet, dry umbrellas, and sunglasses. On the other side of the door I have a shoe organizer that can also hold scarves and gloves and such. Honestly, seeing what college students are doing could be really good inspo for you since we live in tiny spaces with almost no closet and find a way to make it work.

u/Amator · 3 pointsr/dragoncon

Not specifically a shower tip, but we find it's handy that when you're sharing a room with several people to bring one of those over-the-door shoe holders pic at Amazon which makes it easy to keep everyone's shampoos, brushes, etc out of the way.

u/pumpupthejams · 2 pointsr/simpleliving

We have some of those shelves where it's just a series of metal grids with plastic joints and you can assemble them however you want. Instead of all cubes, one part is two cubes high to hang clothes in. The rest you can just stack cubes as high as you want. I like how they break down for easy moving. Like these, except I've found them newish in the box at a thrift store for much cheaper.

The target set (made by closetmaid) has two kinds of panels, one has a wider grill of 5x5 holes while the other has a tighter grid of about 8x8. A can't fit through either, but the tighter grid one makes for a better shelf for the cat to sit on.

There's a set on amazon by whitmore that's about $20 a set, but the picture makes it look like its all the tighter grid.

OP you've got this!

You can totally just do a mini-crib and they are suuuper cute, affordable, and you can usually use them as long as a standard sized crib.

Here's some cute ideas I saw that you might like.

I live in a 3 bedroom apartment with my in-laws and my sister-in-law so I feel you so much. My husband and I just have our little bedroom and bathroom that is "ours".

I've utilized lots of little space-saving tools and ideas:

  • I got rid of any unused furniture, items, or pieces of clothing. These are just wasted space! Get rid of them. Donate them or sell them for some extra cash.

  • I'm using a crib with a changing table attached. It doesn't take up too much space. My crib also has storage under the changing table portion and under the actual crib. So I can store blankets, clothes, whatever I need to here!

  • I got a shoe rack like this one that hangs on the inside of my closet door. This way our shoes are off the floor and hanging in a space that wasn't previously being used.

  • I have floating shelves like these so you can store extra stuff on them either in the bedroom, bathroom, over the changing table, etc!

Get something like this: and wash them in that. That's what I do for all my bras (super lazy one here) and my 3 yr old underwire sports bras are still going strong!

ETA: I got my bags at the local regional Walmart type store. Anywhere that has laundry supplies (clothes pins, hangers, etc) probably has them. Smaller mesh is better I've found, the bigger mesh lets the hooks through and they can snag on other stuff.

After a million years of keeping them in crumpled piles somewhere, I finally got this compact laundry/drying rack. I keep it in the corner of my bedroom and anything that's in this 'in between stage' gets hung on it. Keeps everything separate, unwrinkled, and I also have a good visual of what I need to wear again before I start dirtying more clothes. I love it so much.

First and foremost, nylon zip-ties, along with a tool to tighten and cut them:

You can get adhesive clips to tie cables under a desk:

These 3M Command brand ones are designed to be removed without marring the surface they're stuck on:

These Velcro brand cable ties on a roll are cheaper and more convenient than the fancier kinds with tabs:

If you want to bundle together cables in a sheath, these ones with zippers work better than velcro ones:

(word or warning: the zippers are not exactly premium YKK or RiRi quality, be careful when engaging them to avoid cross-threading..

For routing cables, these Danish organizers are pretty sweet (not available on for some reason):ÅMÅŽÕÑ&url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=cablox

Generally speaking, it pays to replace power cords, Ethernet cords and the like with shorter versions to avoid having slack cable turn into spaghetti. In the UK, your plugs are so bulky a splitter cable like these makes sense:

Finally don't forget to label your cables. This Brother flexible tape works in some of their label makers (you need either a PC-connectable one or one that has software to print labels that can be wrapped around the cable):

here is a shot of it in action:

They also have some label makers that will print on heat-shrink tube labels, but obviously that will not work on ready-made patch cables.

It's normally used to hang up a shoe collection. Available on and in pretty much any department/home goods store, once you know what you're looking for. :)

u/adhoc_lobster · 2 pointsr/Rabbits

You can also make a climbing tower for your rabbit out of those metal storage cubes. Like these. One of those cubes is perfect jump-able rabbit height. I cover up the platforms with cheap carpet squares.

u/digitaldeserts · 29 pointsr/ClothesFail

Hang dry them instead of using the drier.

If you don't have a lot of space, use your shower curtain rod or buy a foldable clothes rack (AmazonBasics Foldable Drying Rack - White )

Also, I'm fairly certain that you posted this in the wrong subreddit.

Best of luck

I need to run an ethernet cable about 50 ft along a wall, and I was wondering if anybody had some good recommendations for some wall cable holders that won't damage the paint. I was looking at something like these:

u/VenocStorm · 1 pointr/boardgames

I can't take pictures as they're currently across the country, but I use something very similar to these for storage. They fit the normal human-size figures well, and everything taller went into a couple separate storage bins.

u/sarowen · 2 pointsr/femalefashionadvice

I have a [tripod-style drying rack] ( similar to this one. You can fold it up when it's not in use so that it doesn't take up so much space. Love it!

u/derpderpsonthethird · 1 pointr/ADHD

storage racks like are useful, give each shelf a purpose for an item and put them there. You can use hangers and s-hooks to hang smaller things.

I also have the most successed staying organized when I put things on hooks, and put them on the wal. Give everything a home and it makes cleaning so much easier.

u/solipsistnation · 5 pointsr/modelmakers

If you can get a desk or workbench with a backsplash (a little wall around the back edge of it) DO. Dropping stuff off the front of the desk is bad enough, but having little bits snap off and fly behind the desk? The worst.

I got a couple of these from Ikea:

They have little drawers that I can keep tools in under my workbench when I'm not using them. So I have sanding stuff in one drawer, a drawer full of little bits of wire and leftover photoetch, a drawer full of glues, one of paint sets, and so on.

I also bought some nail polish wall racks for holding paint. Like this:

...although if you're cool about building things yourself, you could do it cheaper. The clear acrylic is nice, though, since you can read bottles through it.

u/incandescance · 2 pointsr/cosplay

awesome idea! could you possibly repurpose a couple of pop-up hampers to make it work? or make something out of wire that can collapse? similar to this:

regardless, when you figure out I hope you post pictures here!

u/hlbyers92 · 2 pointsr/bengalcats

It may seem counterintuitive, but install curtains and sheers. Once you have them installed you can leave the blinds up at a higher height all of the time. It works for my boys. I also took all of the cord pulls and tucked them behind and fastened the ends between the window and blinds with this 3M hook. I know this description is a little confusing but it works. If you would like more details, please let me know!

u/toxic-miasma · 2 pointsr/UPenn

Get a folding clothes rack like this one and keep it in your closet. It means you can't wash too much at once, but it's better than nothing.

u/philofetish · 2 pointsr/DIY_eJuice

I highly recommend this flavor rack, it makes everything much easier.

u/Geo_Music · 1 pointr/Flyers

I wash my jerseys just fine without any damage (knock on wood) in the regular wash.

The full protective method of washing them would be to...

Turn the jersey inside out, and wash inside a mesh laundry bag on delicate / gentle.

u/penguining · 1 pointr/tall

I love this shoe rack! It's from Amazon

But they probably sell it at the container store too.

u/ctrogers14 · 6 pointsr/TinyHouses

It's a bit smaller than a regular load. The washer holds about twice as much as the dryer, so you have to do two drying cycles for each wash load. It sounds like a lot, but the wash cycle is only 15 minutes max (i usually set it to 12 minutes) and the dry cycle is 5 minutes max (i usually do 4 minutes). The big limitation for this is drying space. I can usually only do a load a day, or one in the morning and one at night because of drying space. I have one fold up drying rack like the one below and one drying clip thing like this:

Whitmor 6171-844 Clip and Drip Hanger with 26 Clips

Drying rack:

Command Strips are safe for your banister and could help support the vine without creating an eye sore.

u/GingerStitches · 8 pointsr/knitting

I actually don’t like to have a stash for knitting since I like to buy yarn for specific projects (with a few exceptions). I have been gifted some yarn and have some left over for projects but once my Christmas knitting is done, the stash will
mostly be gone! It currently all fits into two drawers of these plastic carts right now with all my needles as well.

u/CrookedWench · 2 pointsr/clothdiaps

I am a FTM, due in August, so not CDing just yet. Thought I'd give my 2cents because I also live in the lovely rainy PNW, and hang dry a majority of my clothes in a small indoor space and plan to continue with it for CD.

I have a neat fold out drying rack that fits a lot of stuff, and I point a Walmart box fan at it overnight. Preferably from the side so the air flows in between the clothes. I recently did this after prepping some gifted diapers and they were all dry in the morning. I have never had any issues with mildew or smell with my other clothes this way. I will probably take advantage of the sun for stains when it's here, but otherwise I have never had issues drying without the sun.

u/macotine · 3 pointsr/malefashionadvice

Air drying is mostly about airflow, the more of your garment is exposed to air the quicker it will dry. I lay my knits out on something like this and they dry pretty quickly even in the cooler months

u/zonules_of_zinn · 1 pointr/Foodforthought

you can get one of these bags to wash your fleece/microfiber clothing and clothes in.

i've stopped buying microfiber shit.

edit: maybe that one is super expensive and i can't actually tell if it's any better than some five dollar mesh bag to wash delicates in. something like this.

u/kevin_with_rice · 2 pointsr/malefashionadvice

Hang dry pretty much everything, with t-shirts being an exception. You can do it inside with hangars, but I recommend a drying rack.

Edit: I dry tshirts for 15 in the dryer and then hang dry the rest.

u/elephantsinging · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Hello! I live in a small apartment too, so I know what's up lol

Here are the things:

A Couch Arm Wrap

A Folding Ottoman Bed It's an ottoman that turns into a bed for guests!

Cord Balls

The Laundry Pod

Collapsible Laundry Basket

u/UncleDucker · 1 pointr/LifeProTips

Or get a collapsible clothes drying rack like this one. This is the exact one I use and it has saved me tons of dress shirts from being shrunk.

I did a clothesline style, but that was kind of a hassle, especially with a roommate. My friend showed me this recently though:

u/Superfish57 · 2 pointsr/3Dprinting

You’re welcome to try but I don’t think the pins would be able to support the shelf, let alone anything you put on top. You should try some of these hooks. They stick to the wall and are designed to be removable without leaving any marks.

u/petielvrrr · 2 pointsr/MakeupAddiction

Over the door shoe racks are literally the best for organizing everything.

Or, you can get one of those sterilite drawer things and label the drawers accordingly.

u/BeachBumHarmony · 2 pointsr/rutgers

My best additional storage at Rutgers were these things:

I had some in my closet and under my bed. You can configure them in anyway you need.

You can also get cube storage bins in any color for different kinds of storing.

u/babybreadcrumb · 1 pointr/ZeroWaste

i think a mesh wash bag would help with that- something like this

u/Nels-Looser · 3 pointsr/Cruise

The best recommendation I ever got (and have used for over 15 cruises) is to bring an over the door shoe hanger. It can be hung over the bathroom door, facing the stateroom. We use it for storing all of our small stuff...playing cards, chargers, batteries, cameras, toiletries, sunglasses, etc.

u/Dsblhkr · 2 pointsr/organization

What about a behind door organizer? Like this... 24 Pockets - SimpleHouseware Crystal Clear Over the Door Hanging Shoe Organizer, Gray (64'' x 19'')

These cloths work great, i always keep one on me for my glasses, cellphone, and camera.

MagicFiber Microfiber Cleaning Cloths, 6 PACK

And i wash them in these.

I've bot a bunch of the cloths because I kept misplacing them. So every once in a while I round them all up toss them in a laundry bag and throw it in the wash.

u/MizzChnandlerBong · 3 pointsr/Sneakers

Those racks are great. I had a set for 20+ years that I finally got rid of this year when I moved.
