Holiday Gift Guide: Yube Cube Storage - Review (and a giveaway)


Are you looking for customizable storage options? I would like to introduce you to Yube Cube storage, it is a customizable stylish and Eco friendly way to organize and more! 

Here is a little info about the Yube Cubes from the website:

 

Easy

Four sides snap together with a slide-in back; steel frame locks and corner clips push into place to make a rigid structure. Easy and quick - that’s Yube simplicity.



Personalized

The Yube will grow on you in every way. Stack them up to build the structure you need, or tear it apart and do it again somewhere else; it's that simple. And it's fun to personalize with your own customized doors and accessories that are unique to you.


Sustainable

  Being almost edible, the Yube outer panels you see are made from Sugarcane, only someone got there first to extract the sweet juice. Rather than burn the remaining fiber as waste, it's pulped for reuse and pressed into Yube panels. As with many natural materials, each panel displays it's own unique pattern.
 The frames of the Yube are made from Woodlite, a proprietary compound of non-toxic moldable plastic mixed with Bamboo, the planet's fastest growing renewable wood resource. Woodlite utilizes 20%-30% less non-renewable resources than similarly molded products. It even smells good unlike regular plastic, there is a pleasing light sweet aroma to remind you this is no ordinary material.

I was fortunate to be able to review a Bathroom Cabinet.

This easy to build bathroom cabinet holds plenty for bathroom storage. Modern, stylish, and eco-friendly Yube Cube eco-furniture is made out of panels that are practically edible - they are made from sugarcane after the juice has been extracted. The frames are made of woodlite - a moldable thermoplastic mixed with fiber made from bamboo, the renowned renewable wood resource. Perfect for feeling good about organizing your home!

Includes:
  • 4 Yubes
  • 1 set of feet
  • 1 sets of 2 polyglass shelves
  • 2 polyglass doors
  • 1 set of drawers
  • 14.2" x 14.2" x 58.3"



My Review:

We’re not blessed with the most amount of space in our house so we’re always looking for ways to store things in something other than a Rubbermaid bin. I think I found the perfect solution! Yube cubes  are the coolest and most contemporary way to solve a storage crisis.

The Yube is a cube that you can stack on top of itself of next to itself or you can just use them one cube at a time, there is no wrong way to yube I mean use your Yube. And the beauty of these little cubes besides the fact that they really look cool is that they took my mechanically challenged husband less than one quarter of football to put together! That right there in an accomplishment unto itself.  And unlike other things he has put together in the past, he was not muttering to himself and entirely frustrated when he was finished. He said it was quite easy to put together.


This particular Yube Cube set is designed to use in the bathroom.  I would just love to use in my bathroom but out small (it is tiny) row home bath room would not be able to fit the cubes : (  I decided that this would be great for our kitchen, for a small pantry shelf. Like I have said I have little room, and we have lots of stuff. Where can I organize the cereal boxes, the snacks and much more? Well my Yube it  perfect for that. If fits in well with my kitchen. It is stylish and functional.  Well here it is in my kitchen:


That did not last long when my daughter saw it she begged and pleaded to have two of the cubes for her room.  She told me it would help her organize her room, get the animals and books off of the floor. Hmmm what to do…  

We have 2 cubes in our kitchen and 2 cubes in our daughter’s room holding all of her books and little girl Chatski’s.  We had her books just piled on her floor it was an unsightly mess that made it impossible to find the book she wanted, finding a book in that pile made learning and understanding the Dewey decimal system look easy! With her 2 Yube cubes her books are neatly lined up and off the floor giving her more space in her room and getting that mess off the floor.

And I have 2 cubes in the kitchen, so we can both get organized now.

The really cool thing that I liked were the options of customizing your cube, we were sent 2 doors and a shelf along with our cubes, we used the doors for my daughters cube and the shelf for one of our kitchen cubes. They add to space to your house and aren’t just ugly drawers of a shelving unit, they’re different and functional and we really love them.

If you are not sure what Yube will work for you make sure to check out the Yube Customizer this will help you decide what is right for you. 

With the holidays right around the corner, what a great gift a Yube set would be! The gift of organization or a sleeker living space. That will surely be great for someone on your holiday gift list this year.
