Marie Kondo’s New Bedroom Storage Can Fit More Than a Dozen Outfits—Including Shoes
And you don’t have to unzip it to remember what’s inside.

The 16- to 24-inch gap between your floor and the bottom of your bed is precious real estate. You can fit your entire off-season wardrobe under there with no problem—that is if you have the help of a genius packing cube, like the one pro organizer Marie Kondo and Paravel just launched.
In addition to a quad of travel-friendly packing cubes, the KonMari x Paravel collection features a $65 large under-the-bed container that fits—wait for it—nine to 10 shirts or thin sweaters, up to four pairs of pants, one pair of shoes, and five to six undergarments. And, yes, that’s all in one bin. The piece has a see-through panel on the top and a handle on the side so you can easily pull it out from underneath your mattress and know in a matter of seconds if you’ve found what you’re looking for. Another fact you can feel good about: Each one is made out of 13 recycled plastic water bottles.
But back to the 10 shirts, four pairs of pants business. It might sound impossible to squeeze that much stuff into a bag that’s not even 4 inches tall and barely 2 feet long, but the secret to pulling it off is folding your items according to the KonMari Method, which involves bundling garments enough times so that they stand upright.
Already have some sort of built-in under-bed storage situation happening? The extra-large cube is also meant to fit perfectly inside Paravel’s Aviator Grand checked suitcase, so you can put it to good use on all those vacations you’ve been putting off.
