Storage for the Bag-o-holic
Too many bags, and not enough storage space. Aeronaut, Empire Builder, Super Ego, ID, a few Brain Cells, a bunch of packing cubes (TB and non-TB), a Checkpoint Flyer - scattered in a corner of my closet.
About to order a Western Flyer, a couple of Cafe Bags, a Co-Pilot, and an Imago. Plus a few more cubes and pouches.
I wont even mention my camera bags (but I will): a pair of Domkes, a few LowePro Slings, a Think Tank Sling-o-Matic, and another bag or two.
Do I really need a bag for my bags? :eek:
Maybe I need a shrink...
Probably, but how do you handle the neat storage of a plethora of smaller "organization bags" and larger bags? I don't want to play the Russian Nesting Dolls game and have to dig into a bag inside a bag inside a bag....
organizer-a-holic meets bag-o-holic
planning a closet makeover and will be taking into consideration our soon-to-be-made tom bihn purchases (just have an aeronaut now, but eyeing a co-pilot for myself and the checkpoint flyer for the hubby)... and we're going with the elfa system from the container store to organize them
i like elfa b/c you can mix and match basket dimensions. they come up to 20 3/4" long x 16 7/8" wide x 11 1/4" deep - enough to hold an Aeronaut with minimal squishing; so with 1-2 bags per drawer basket and then a shallow drawer basket on top to hold accessories, straps, etc, we'll have a tom bihn 'dresser' of bags!
here's a standard kit, but you can purchase individual components:
btw, i'm not affiliated with the container store - i just love their stuff! hth
