We are SO CLOSE to our very last moving date. But it’s like that old science class problem, where you have to move a distance, but first you have to move half the distance, then a quarter of the distance, then an eighth of the distance, and so on, until it looks like you will never get to your destination because you will still be 1/128th away from it. The details still have to be attended to, and there never seems to be an end of them.
But that is for our builders to fret about. We are preparing for the move here at the rental. Putting stuff in boxes so a coworker can take away the shelves to furnish her first apartment. So a charity can come and take the last stick of furniture. So we can bundle ourselves onto a moving truck and get to set up a home in our laneway.
Life was a lot easier when all we had to do was throw our books and records (pre-CD days) into a few milk crates, which would then serve as the foundation for shelves at the new abode.
Wouldn’t life be simpler if we could still use something like that for our shelving? You can see where I’m going — someone has come up with a modern version of the milk crate — the Yube! It’s a modular cube that you can use to make larger pieces of furniture.
Like a coffee table
Or office shelves
A media centre
Or a modern wall of bookcases
A sleek look you can take with you anywhere — and configure how you wish in your new home. The Yube locks together for a safe and secure structure–with optional doors and shelves. And as this article in Life Edited says
The YubeCubes also feature a very solid eco-cred, with panels made entirely made of sugarcane fiber, bamboo and recycled plastic.
Storage is at a premium in a small home, but you can’t afford to sacrifice style.
The Yube Cube looks like the smart, ecologically friendly alternative to our old friend, the milk crate. Plus it’s great for a rental.
