I’ve spent the whole afternoon cleaning my room and it was no easy task. I don’t have a dedicated storage area for my bags and I don’t keep them all in a dustbag. Most of them no longer have dustbags and I’ve been keeping a mental note to go to the fabric market and buy materials to make them. Meanwhile, here is what I did with my bags.
A bag pile of the heavy bags, mostly leather, above my telescope case. I’ve kept the Keepall 50 and the other Gucci monogram duffle inside my cabinet.Since I mostly use the bags above, I’ve got no problem with them stacked together because they won’t be like this for a long time.
These LV sling and messenger bags, along with the Mulberry scotchgrain were left hanging next to my wall. As I don’t usually use them that frequently (except for the Mulberry), I think they are best left on an area where I won’t bump against them.
And these three lighter, to-go bags were hanging by this wooden contraption next to my bed. Should an earthquake happen, I won’t be smacked by heavy hardware and slapped by leather. *knocks on wood*
I know for a fact that it isn’t advisable to just hang your bags like these because of the strain it might cause to the handles/straps. But as I’ve got limited space, I’ve got no choice but hang them. Another method of looking at this problem is simple: I got too many bags.
Next problem will be the dustbags. The weather is officially rainy and these bags should not be exposed like this. Given the tropical weather and heavy humidity, I will be soon waging another annual war against molds and other things that might ruin my bags. I’ve got a week left to have a remedy.
