Survey: Underbed Storage

We were terrible. We would shove any and everything we could under our bed as a place to put things “away.” When it finally came time for us to move out of our apartment, we were shocked to see all of the lone socks, magazines, dust bunnies, books and shoes that resurfaced. Since then, we vowed never to store items under our bed again.

Yet, under the bed can be such an untapped storage area. We’re tempted to begin using it again in our son’s room. We all need somewhere to store our sweaters, shoes, toys, books, after all — especially if we’re short on places to put them.

Do you store items under your child’s bed? What do you use to pack your items? Do you find it hard or easy to keep it tidy and organized?
