Housewife vs. Stuff: Housewife wins!

Love this storage system! This is my second time purchasing this item. I timed myself, and I assembled it in ONE HOUR, including a major mistake on my part! (I'm a housewife, not a NASA engineer.) The PVC pipes are flexible and easy to manipulate. I DO NOT RECOMMEND USING VASALINE or any type of oil to make pipes slide together easily. You want the friction/tension for when it's time to support the weight of your tubs. If the pipes are slippery, you run the risk of them slipping, and the weight of the tubs might make the unit sag, or sway. The manufacturer's instructions don't say anything about needing vasaline or oil. I put this together with just a drill and willpower! I whacked the poles into position with my fist, and I would turn the entire unit around so that gravity was in my favor. **ASSEMBLE THIS UNIT IN THE ROOM WHERE IT WILL GO!!** It is too large and akward to try and assemble it in one location, and then move it to where you want it to be located permanently. I recommend assembling it in a 10' x 10' EMPTY area. ( I know this is kinda tricky because you're probably putting it in an area that is a mess, full of boxes, and tubs. You're going to be sorting things and putting them into tubs that fit the unit anyway, so clean out the room where you're putting this storage unit, assemble it, then put the items for storage in the unit.) I used Sterelite brand 30 gallon tubs from Wal-Mart. They were $7.93 each. I don't know if this was a deal or not, but I'm just including these figures so that you can compare the cost. I would definately purchase this item again, but I sure hope I don't have to store any more stuff!! Please note that I was able to fit larger tubs on the top row, but this only works if you have the ceiling height needed to accommodate the increased height. I'm including a photo of the two units side by side (mostly to brag that my basement is very tidy!). Don't judge! There's a bunch of PTA stuff in those tubs!! ;0)
