    How do you store your TB bags?

    I'm wondering how other Bihnions store their TB collections. I have a few bags I keep in their boxes, and a deep drawer for my other bags and items. However, I would be very appreciative if you would share your storage methods, and I'd really enjoy pictures, too!

    Many thanks!

    Oh, what nice timing. I just today re-organized my hall closet which is where I store my daily TB bags. Synapse 19, Swift, Sprout, Makers Bag, a couple Cafe bags, UV Shop Bag, and a handful of various sizes of stuff sacks are all tucked in and easy to access when I need them. My 3 non-daily bags hang in another closet with my other travel luggage.

    Here's the front hall closet with the daily bags - organization was done with ClosetMaid shelving, a tension rod, and some 3M Command hooks. A few bags from my other favorite brands mixed in here as well.

    Small items, like TSS and organizer pouches, are in plastic tubs in cupboard, with spare cafe bag and daylight backpack in white basket.
    Travel bags in cupboards in cellar which unfortunately has a mold problem at the moment.

    Well, I always liked @Moose's Clearing out and a possible problem thread, but I suspect that's not the one she's talking about (evil grin).

    So, maybe take a look at @taminca's Proof of My TB Obsession thread, or @eWalker's Safe storing our precious TB Travek Bags

    Timely topic! I am moving from a tiny place with lots of storage to a larger apartment with more living space, but far less storage.

    For instance, I had a walk-in closet with a shelf onto which I would spread out all my bags. The new place has basically one closet that goes along a wall, and it will mostly be filled with clothes and shoes. I think I will have to move to a system of nesting my bags, Tom Bihn and otherwise, into each other.

    For my small stuff, such as packing cube shoulder bags, stuff sacks, Q-kits, etc., I will continue to store them in 2 dresser drawers. I switch them out almost daily. I find it a lot easier to grab what I want when everything is viewable. For this reason I don't even create too many piles -- it is nice to see it all at once.

    My Shop Bags will probably stay on a hook near the front door. Not very elegant, but I need to remember that they are there as I'm walking out...

    Thanks for reminding me that I need to do some organizing. Let's see... A dedicated bag closet? Or create a TB showroom in our office/den?

    @bchaplin, your new apartment with more living space will be so nice. It sounds like you are very organized and it will change by necessity, but continue right along. I like the idea of the two drawers and being able to see all your options. Smilie

    Thanks! Obviously I'm a huge fan of Aubergine (Not Wasabi!) and Ultraviolet, and I am surprised by how much I love the Azure too. Then I have Gray or Steel for my neutrals, although I'm considering adding Linen (Small Cafe Bag) as well.

    I store most of my shop bags (though not my original Nordic one) in the side cargo nets in my car's cargo area - so they are ready to be filled. My backpacks are secured by a carabiner to a shelf for easy access, and travel bags are lined up like little soldiers in a storage tub.

    Brain bag, imago & a handful of OPs are never packed away / always in use (speaking of which, my imago's been my trusty companion for five years now, almost to the day! treated myself to it after landing a huge promotion at work in mid-2011).

    Shop bags are rolled up and stuffed into a SSB when not in use (they see a lot of action!)

    All the other bits and bobs are tucked away in my A30 and A45, which are stored in a tiny hobbit hole of a closet in a spare bedroom, keeping them safe from dust, cats, and light damage.

    Great info, and I never thought of a carabiner but that's a great idea! I love the thought of your little soldier bags lined up! Smilie
