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.

yeah, is a problem with limited space. Dig the setup woodrow. Will eventually need to do something.
pay via paypal, use credit card,file dispute at the 20 day mark if suspicious. don't deal with noobs. don't trade with noobs. request feedback ahead of time. there are lots of good people 'round here.

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. :)
