Collapsible containers are obvious space-savers for those whose storage needs keep changing. Here's a quick tour of some of the options.
Collapsible fabric storage cubes / bins
The bins above come from Room It Up, which sells storage products in different patterns: stripes, plaids, polka dots, etc.
Update on April 11, 2009: I'm having some problems using the Room It Up web site, but Dormbuys.com seems to have the same bins. They measure 12" x 12" x 12".
And then there are the Top Performance Collapsible Cubes.
Other options include:
- Magic Cubes from Whitney Design
- Whitmor Collapsible Cubes: sets of 2 or sets of 12
- KangaRoom Collapsible Open Shelf Storage Boxes
- ClosetMaid fabric drawers
Folding Mesh Cubes
The Container Store sells these in three sizes and four different colors.
The Tasket folding crate from Schiffmayer Plastics is one option; could also look at the ARMADA Collapsible Crate.
A different type of collapsible crate are these stackable crates that will hold legal- or letter-sized files.
Crunch Can / Pop Up Hampers
Umbra crunch cans come in solid colors and patterns. Whitney Design also makes pop up hampers - including some cute ones for children which I wrote about before.
Collapsible Baskets / Market Totes
The Stacks and Stacks Clutter Control Freak blog pointed me to these plastic collapsible baskets.
And you can get Reisenthel carrybags (patterned or solid color) from Sur La Table, where they are called Collapsible European Market Totes.
