Amaze Creation’s Safari Foldables Foldable Fabric Storage Containers

 

There are a few axioms we live by around here, and one of them is that you can never have enough storage solutions. And there’s many choices out there for collapsible cloth storage “boxes”, but my new favorite is, hands down, Amaze Creations’ Safari Foldables 6-pack of fabric storage bins.

I’ve had, tested and reviewed storage boxes like these before, and more than a few failed to pass muster. They were flimsy, small, poorly designed or made, looked or smelled funky. Safari Foldables is none of those things, and at $24.44 for a six pack, you will not find a cheaper, better made set of fabric foldable storage bins. There’s strong, sewn-on fabric handles, with a firm, strong bottom that doesn’t bow or crease even under a heavy load of 4 5lb bags of flour, 2 large bags of brown sugar, and a canister of baking powder. That’s no joke, but the Safari Foldables Fabric storage bin just took it all and laughed. And as if these weren’t too cool already, there’s a small pocket in front for a label, with a label included!! (Pro-tip: Don’t write on them, use a P-Touch so that you can reuse the label if/when the contents change) These storage bins are a generous 10.5 x 10.5 x 11 inches, so storing extra dry goods, seasonal clothes, small kitchen appliances…it’s entirely up to you, but rest assured these Safari Foldables storage bins are up to the task.

Safari Foldables also offers a 100% money-back satisfaction guarantee, but I guarantee you, you’re going to love them. They’re a neutral beige, so they’ll go with any decor as well. They look stylish and keep my storage shelves neat and organized, because clutter and mess is just no bueno. You should pick up one or two, I know I need to get another set!

Blu Monaco Modern Premium File Box Desk Organizer Set

If you’re like me, you have a pile of papers somewhere that you’ve been meaning to get to and sort, organize or file. I have several. My home office’s desk has usually got several piles, organized by order of importance, strewn about it. So when the opportunity arose to try out a set of Premium Home Organizer boxes from Blu Monaco Modern, I was so very game, and I’m so very glad I did.

DSC_0822

To start, Amazon’s “Stupid Shipping Crew” threw the package in a box with a couple of air pillows, and somehow assumed that was sufficient to keep these from getting beaten up during shipping. Suffice to say, it was not. But Blu Monaco immediately shipped out a set that was packaged moderately better and arrived pristine. I would have liked a little insert that described how one put the boxes together, but thankfully I did figure it out. These File Organizers are not just made well, out of paper covered heavy-duty cardboard, and they’re a joy to look at, as they can make the unsightly piles of papers on your desk, kitchen table, or coffee table a thing of the past. With a metal-rimmed label on the outside spine, it’s also easy to organize and store things like magazines (sorted by subject matter, natch) that sometimes are of irregular sizes and make storage a nightmare. I know I have more than a few cooking magazines with recipes for days that now, instead of stacking in my bookshelf , will have a more permanent and stylish home. They’re sturdy enough that I can pack them with papers, receipts, or magazines and never have to worry about them falling apart either.

If I had one complaint, and it’s the usual one, it’s that at $25.99, they’re pricey. At $19.99 they’d be priced perfectly, and they’ll have a hard time being competitive with other brands on Amazon or your local office supply store. But they are very well made, and look very sharp on the shelf, so the value of them is really up to you. I liked them I recommend them, and the seller’s service is top-notch.

Ohuhu 5-Level Storage Organizer/Wardrobe

ScreenHunter_04 Sep. 28 20.53

Ohuhu is quickly making a name for themselves in all manner of products and categories, and their 5-Level “Non-Woven Cloth” storage wardrobe is an ambitious product that could be very useful and come in handy in the right situations.It does fall a little short in some respects and while I still think it’s a decent product, there’s definitely room for improvement.

DSC_0200

To start, the “non-woven cloth” (more like paper, really) is really thin and delicate. Because the fit and finish of the metal tubes and connectors is not the absolute finest, you must exercise extreme care when putting the cover over the frame, lest you rip it. Mine came with some damage, but not so damaged that it meant it was useless. The metal framing tubes are a little fragile, and assembly took Hubby, by himself, about 40 minutes, mostly because, again, you have to be gentle with the components and the instructions were, shall we say, lacking.

Individual sections can be a little rickety, and the unit depends on the strength of the entire product assembled as a whole to provide some stability. Once assembled, the unit is not at all flimsy, and does look quite handsome in almost any room. It’s functional for a dorm, or small closetless room, while being large enough for many various items but compact enough that it’s footprint doesn’t take up the entire room. The whole unit is light enough to moved easily by just one person, but I’d advise against moving it with full shelves. The “fabric” shelves also cannot hold a great deal of things, nor very heavy objects either, so be forewarned. At $44.99 (at the time of this writing) I feel it’s a little pricey, considering I don’t see the unit lasting very long, but I still wanted to give this Ohuhu 5-Level Cloth Storage Organizer a 5 star rating.

What stopped me is the overall customer service. As I mentioned before, my cover came with some small cuts and tears from manufacturing and shipping. I tired contacting them through Amazon, and received no response. I tried through Facebook, and after a few days was told to email them directly. I emailed them, and to date have received no response. That’s concerning because there’s multiple reports of shipping damage and thankfully, Amazon stand behind their customers 100%, but it’s disappointing for a company that makes so many wonderful products has such lacking customer service skills. So I had to knock off a star, but the product itself is pretty handy, useful, and practical.
