One of the cons of having a large bag collection is the lack of proper storage space. As much as you may want to keep your bags in good condition, without a good place to put them, they may just end up being squashed underneath your other stuff. Thankfully, an expert has a great tip for how to address this problem.


Q: I live in a studio-type unit. I have a cabinet with room only for my clothes, and my bags end up getting flattened on the cabinet floor. Any budget-friendly tips on how I can store my bags? –Ria

A: The space under the bed is a perfectly good (albeit often unused) storage space. It may seem small but you’ll be surprised how much you can hide under there! Place your bags in plastic storage boxes or bins, which are available in different sizes and colors at Make Room in Powerplant Mall, Rockwell, and at most SM Department Stores. I recommend you get storage boxes with built-in wheels so you can easily roll them in and out from under the bed.

Another tip: Use one container for your formal bags and another one for your backpacks or sporty bags. If you don’t have space under the bed, smaller storage boxes will easily fit under tables. –Lilli Beth Gelvezon, architect
