Anyone have any ideas for storage?

Having boxes with tubes in them is taking up valuable space IMO.

Anyone have any creative storage solutions?

Saw someone, somewhere, had hung a net in his garage (from the ceiling) and it seemed to hold quite a few!

I bring mine to the recycling center.


I have kept one I received from KSN earlier this year because it's hilariously big. Like put a small person inside big.

Compliments of my brother-in-law. While staying with us he had a little spare time and scrap wood from a job site. Not fancy, but it gets the job done. I'm happy with it.

I store smaller ones inside bigger ones. Saves a good bit of space.

Did one of the tubes look familiar? I've had Bieber fever ever since it arrived.

Back when I had rabbits I used to use mine as disposable tunnels for them.

My collection looks about the same size but I take the smaller diameter ones and slide them inside the larger ones, and again and again so that my big fat tubes end up holding 3 or 4 tubes each. In about 5 minutes you could cut that sprawl down to 1/4 of the size it is now.


If you wanted to. :)
