    I would like a shelving unit to go in the long cupboard with the clothes rail but can't seem to find anything.
    How do you all store your clothes?

    I used a unit from IKEA
    http://www.ikea.com/gb/en/catalog/products/70250811/
    also in white!

    If it's too long the bottom bit can just be folded up or you can cut it off as the fabric doesn't fray.

    Or even cheaper:

    I also got one of these
    http://www.ikea.com/gb/en/catalog/products/70250854/

    which was on half price offer, for the garage. Handy for odds and ends like spare fuses and bulbs and duct tape and....... all the things you need in a hurry and can never find.

    Hope that helps!

    The "Wardrobe" in our van is tiny and has the aerial pole running inside it which is why I decided on the "soft" shelves. Easier to persuade into place. :RollEyes:

    Wardrobe why ever not?, mine is a good size I think, clothes on hangers, keeps them crease free , also see at a glance which top goes with trousers / skirts, , I like life to be easy, just my take on it, couldn`t put clothes in boxes, the only other storage I have is the shirt bags with the Velcro fastening and clear see through front with zips down each side, I have one for underclothes/ nightwear, used these for years in the caravan, fit in side cupboards over the cab, keeps everything tidy and in one place.they also have many uses, easy to pack.

    I turned our wardrobe into a larder! Much better use of space and easier to get at the pans, food etc, than scrabbling around in low down cupboards/lockers: I used plastic shelf holders 'pegs' that you find in kitchen cupboards which just pop into a small drilled hole (4 per shelf) and some plywood which I covered with spare vinyl flooring - see below pictures.

    We have more than enough clothes storage in the 4 lockers above the bed with excess socks, pants etc going under the bed in 'vacuum' bags along with other stuff such as spare sheet/duvet cover etc which are really useful as they squeeze the air out of them so they go a lot smaller and are therefore easier to store, I also use them for dirty washing too as again they can be squishes small when full and as an added bonus keep the 'whiff' of hubby's smelly socks at bay:RollEyes:

    If you get some of the above bags, make sure you get the ones that you roll to expel the air and NOT the ones where you need a vacuum cleaner to suck the air out!

    We have a set of these each ( different colours) which are great for separating out your clothes
    http://www.ikea.com/gb/en/catalog/products/30235115/
    They lie flat and can fit in lockers. I separate one out for socks, another for knickers, another for t-shirts/tops, another for shorts/trousers ......you get the picture.
    Stops all the clothes getting muddled up and crumpled and can clearly see what you need. I put little labels on top to see through the mesh side
    Also use for business and now wonder how I manage without.

    As one of my children said when she was little and hated being dressed ....

    "Clothes? Gorgeous girls don't need clothes!"

    She's grown up a bit since then and is now clothes crazy!
