Living in a city doesn’t mean you can’t pursue your outdoor hobbies.

If you’re an outdoor person who lives in a city like Kuala Lumpur, you might realise that storage space is a constant challenge that you have to deal with every time you’re back from your adventures. Storing hobby gears like bicycle, camping gears, and bulky backpacks inside your apartment can be a hassle especially when your gears keep on adding up over time. Here are some storage tips and tricks from us to help you keep doing what you love and at the same time continue living in a clutter-free home.

1. Organise with Plastic Crates

Instead of cardboard boxes use plastic crates to keep your outdoor gears. Make sure to organise them by category (tents, climbing ropes, outdoor kitchen equipment, etc.) and label your crates. If you’re using Cube’s plastic crates, you can keep them easily in your closet, stack them up at a corner of your room, or be creative — stack and arrange them nicely, cover with a blanket and use as a nightstand or even as a coffee table. Need plastic crates? Rent 5 crates from us and enjoy 20% discount.

2. Make use of dead spaces

You might not notice these spaces before, but take a look around again. Find all the unused spaces in your home — under your bed and couch, and even your unused oven! You can use these spaces to store sleeping bags, trekking poles, hiking boots, fishing rods and even a few more crates.

3. Use your gears as decoration

Install some pegboard on an empty wall and artfully hang your backpacks, tools and other gears. You can even hang your other hobby gears like skateboard and bicycle. Not only this is creative and practical, but it is also personalising your home to be YOU — an active outdoor person.

4. Get a personal self storage!
