Real Simple 9-Cube Storage Unit Review
I have to admit something to you. Sometimes I get REALLY excited about the everyday things in life. Okay, maybe not even the everyday things. The simple things. The concept of a place for everything, and everything in it’s place. That concept excites me to no end. And with Christmas coming, that’s even more important to me. We REALLY love blessing out kids. But in our 600 sq foot house, the idea of adding more anything is hard. Especially when it comes things for my kids. My daughter especially. She’s at the age, where she needs a lot of different things to keep her occupied. But she’s also at that age where she’s getting smaller toys – gone are the days of exersaucers and giant stride to ride on toys… we have entered the days of Lego sets, Polly Pockets. and Magformers – you know, the toys that are fun to play with, but make you want to scream if you step on them :). And these are AWESOME toys! However, they can and do take up a bunch of room if you let them.
Enter the Real Simple 9-Cube Storage Unit. Each cube is slightly less than 12 inches across, so the whole unit only takes up 3 feet of floor space. But since it also goes UP, you can store a WHOLE bunch of things in there! Lego sets in one bin, Magformers in another, Polly pockets in a third. And low and behold, it’s all UP OFF THE FLOOR – no more mysterious toys to step on in the middle of the night! Plus the shelf on the top can be used to display those beautiful creations! We have a one bin rule at our house (the kids can have ONE bin of toys out, and before they get out a new one, the old one has to be put away). The Real Simple 9-Cube Storage Unit makes that SUPER easy to keep track of. It’s so obvious if they still have a bin of toys down!
One of my favorite things that make this Real Simple 9-Cube Storage Unit different than the other ones out there are the BINS! There are SO MANY choices!! The ones pictured are the 9 colors in this style, with the handle across the top of the bin. I think these handles make it easy for little hands to open them! I also think they look classy! Real Simple also makes a Fabric Drawer! This drawer has a spot for your hand cut into the bin, and is the same size as the bin. Then they take it up a notch. Then they get EXTREMELY cool…
Inside each of the cubes is bookshelf like holes. And you can add a shelf (maybe over the half height bin) or a cross frame insert (which turns 1 square into FOUR), and a wooden drawer with tray insert! And all the wooden additions have matching finishes, so you can get them in espresso or white!
So, are you ready to WIN one of these Amazing contraptions? Real simple is giving one luck reader their choice of 9-cube storage unit (white or espresso) and 9 fabric bins of your choice! You can choose from the half height bins, the full size ones, and you can get any combination of colors you like!
