harken back to grammar school days, but there's a reason cubes (also known as cubbies) are invading our homes: open modular storage is highly functional.
Cubby systems for home use come at all price points and many now include doors, so if you like your belongings outta sight, you've still got options.
Here's a starter list of six; as always, please add to it if you know of other good sources and systems.
• Hoot Judkins' Pine Cubes, $59.88 apiece (3 cube-unit)

• Brookstones' Kids Stackable Cubbies, $79.95 - $149.95
