skuterrat- We have those same shelves at school for the colorguard. Target and everything.

Anyway, I have a rather small yarn stash. Most of it is composed of single balls of either wool or acrylic yarn. Even blends of both. So, I keep it in a large cardboard box from Staples.

skuterrat - I love that pic! My cats are both very fond of my new shelves. Mine look the same, except they're bigger(?), black/brown, and from Ikea (I have the "medium" Expedit unit). I love them!

I keep mine in huge Rubbermaid bins in the basement. When I lived in my apartment though, I bought a cheap 6' tall bookshelf and tried to (as neatly as humanly possible) stack the yarn balls on the shelves. Now it's much easier for me to hide my stash where Hubby can't see it/ That way, when I beg and plead for some new yarn he's convinced I really am in dire need *sinister laugh* Out of sight, out of [his] mind.

I keep mine in a rather large CD rack, so it's all nice and stacked up and pretty.  And I keep my CDs in a drawer.  Tongue

rubbermaid... seems to be the majority's answer... but i don't have space under my bed (stupid ikea) so i keep mine under my computer desk in my living room, and then i put my printer and wireless router on top so its not a waste of space.

in my last apartment i cleared a shelf on a wide, deep bookshelf and used individual smaller rubbermaid bins as sorting devices... until my yarn started to take up two or three shelves... and then it was just chaos...

the apartment before that it was a rubbermaid behind my bedroom door, stacked on top of the rubbermaid full of clothes i didnt wear anymore

those darn bins can be used for just about everything

good luck!

I use wicker baskets that I bought from Ikea....  and I lined them with fabric so that the wicker didn't snag any of the yarn.  works for me and they look quite pretty lined up with the balls peeping out the top......

You can buy risers for your bed. Smiley  I know that's what people I know with Ikea beds have done.

I *want* one of those shelving/drawer units from Target, but I *have* a wooden rack with plastic bins that sit on an angle.  I don't love it, but it works for now.

its one of those ones that already has pre-made drawers under it (http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/80121338) so propping it up would look silly. (the drawers are currently used by my husband's stuff... and since our bedroom is so small we only have access really to one of the drawers unless we want to pick up the mattress and access them that way. which we do. */end pathetic*) Smiley


by the way if you don't like the look of rubbermaid bins i also use some of those wicker baskets for my wips and fo's... some kinds will stack and they're pretty cheap (i think i got them for about $10 each)...
