Heatons (stay with me) have some deadly container boxes in stock right now that would be ideal for seasonal clothes storage, like putting away the winter woolies for the incredible summer that we're about to have.
I'm all about the power of positive thinking today, folks.
They're made by a crowd called Premier, and are transparant plastic with clip-on one-piece lime green or grey lids. The lid thing is important (yes, really) because those folding two-piece lids that some containers come with have holes in them than an elephant could easy skip through, which means the stuff you're storing in them is inclined to get really, really dusty. These boyos from Heatons do have ventilation holes in them, but they're at either end of the boxes and there's a little moulded lip over the top of them which should pretty much do away with the dust problem.
I got a mahoosive one, the big 65 litres size which is about 73cm x 45cm x 25cm, for €16 yesterday because I wanted to see if it'd fit under the bed in the spare room. Not only does it fit poifectly, but the zesty lime green lid actually goes really well with the duvet cover (obviously an essential consideration for underbed storage) and it holds absolutely heaps of stuff.
Those two overflowing Avoca bags that I mentioned the other day, the ones in the spare room that were bursting with wrapping paper and bows and ribbons and the like, have now been retired. Their contents have been rehoused in The Box, together with all the other sort of crafty stuff that was in various drawers and corners around the place.
I'll definitely be swinging by Heatons later on today to pick up a couple more for the winter boots and not-currently-in-use handbags. They're currently taking up way too much valuable wardrobe space that could be put to better use housing new, summery purchases ;)
Enjoy the long weekend!
