Q: I recently moved into an apartment that has plaster walls and a 'no holes in the walls' clause in the lease. The apartment I just moved out of had extensive built-in storage, so I have no shelves in my possession.

I would like to save as much floor space as possible for my current furniture (couch, chairs, bar cart, bicycle) and not fill it up with shelving. I'd love to install wall mounted shelving, but the plaster walls make that tricky. What are some clever wall attachment solutions for renters?
