Looking For a Storage Solution That is Environmentally Friendly? Way Basics Cubes Review

 Disclosure: I received two free environmentally friendly storage cubes in exchange for my honest opinion about them.

I was very excited to receive these storage cubes as I have been looking for something to "complete" Daniella's bedroom as she had a small empty wall ever since we threw away her television and tv stand. (That's a topic for a whole other post!). She has white bedrails and a white bookcase so it just made sense to go with white cubes. My initial plan for the white storage cubes was to use them on either side of Daniella's bed like nightstands. Once they arrived and we assembled them, we quickly realized that they were too short to be used for this purpose. We considered stacking them, but did not because we felt that the top one would slide too easily off the bottom one and because of the backing, we would not be able to easily add a lamp or an alarm clock to the top because it would involve using cords. We may reconsider stacking them when she is older, but for now we felt it wasn't best. We ended up using them to make a quiet corner.

I love that the box that the cubes arrived in said this on it! So true!

Two cubes come in the same box!

Outer packaging.

Pieces and instructions - seriously, all you have to do is peel, stick, and you are done!

Peeling the strips.

Inserting the small tubes.

Making progress!

Fully assembled! So easy that my 11 year did it.

Here is Daniella's quiet corner! She keeps her stuffed animals, baby dolls, puzzles, books and trains here. Any time she needs a break (time out, as some people may say), she goes to her quiet corner. She also selects something from the quiet corner to use during nap time. It has been really great so that she knows exactly what items are acceptable to use during those instances. I like that the storage cubes have the following features:
