No Man’s Land Episode 6: Where To Put All The Things

Do you live in a small space with tiny closets? Do you like to keep Halloween props and lots and lots of scarves? Do you have more than three shirts? Then you probably understand the plight of always needing more good storage ideas — especially if you don’t want to live among 500 plastic Rubbermaid containers. You want your storage solutions to be cute and interesting, weird even!

Anna and Shelly, along with Franchesca Ramsey from Shit White Girls Say to Black Girls and Chelsalocs, totally feel you. In this episode of No Man’s Land, Franschesca shares some inspiring storage tips! It’s exciting and fun the whole way through, and then comes THE PUPPY and it’s like — you know?

So where do you cleverly store all of your important / random stuff?

  1. Keeping a sword for a year is nothing, I still take my wooden t-ball bat (from when I was 5 or 6) with me whenever I move.

    Also, at one point I wanted to start a sword collection because swords are cool.
