I’m doing most of my projects at my parents’ house so that I can leave them there.  I live in 450 square feet and we barely have enough room to store Xmas presents right now (And 75% of those are already at my parents!)

i have a corner and lots of boxes. get the flat rate usps boxes, they are free! then i label the boxes with a sharpie, so i know what is in them, but they are kind of taking over my house 🙁

I have a bunch of boxes at the moment, but we’ll be taking some of the completed stuff over to FI’s parent’s storage unit later this month.  Just seal it up really well and hopefully nothing will get damaged!

I took a bunch of empty paper ream boxes from work. They’re a nice size and free. And I have an easily accessible source for more. And the boxes are being stacked in my closet.

I stored it all at my parents house too – they didn’t have a dining room for months! 🙂

@crebre – yeah, I have one of those things too! It’s nice when what your storing them in is clear so you know what’s in it.

We’ve got a loft, so we’re storing all the wedding stuff up there! Luckily it’s a decent sized space so we don’t have to worry about it.

Boxes are taking over our house! Luckily we haven’t been using our pool table room much lately, so they’re all in there. I have big plans to print out labels and pictures of the mock ups and tape them to the sides of the boxes so I can put them in a closet or our 3rd bedroom, but haven’t gotten to it yet.

I want to make our centerpieces for our after party but I’ve been putting it off cause I have no idea where we’d store them till June. For now, all our wedding stuff is getting packed in my closet. Oh, precious closet space, how I miss you.

I would recommend plastic bins. They aren’t free BUT reusable once the wedding is over 😀

You should see my office in our house, not to mention the corner of our dining room!!  DIY projects are taking over my house!!  I stored them in boxes from work or those clear scrapbook bins.  I have plenty of bubble wrap just in case for our travels to Aruba!  I have so much to bring with us, its ridiculous!!  The Fi told me last night NO MORE PROJECTS!!  eeeekkkss…but I love doing them!!
