As Shark Week comes to a close, I would like to remind everyone that sharks can be enjoyed year round. Learning about the attack style and swim patterns of great whites like Colossus is captivating, but the fun doesn’t have to end.

Remember those wire storage cubes with the plastic corner connectors? I purchased bright orange ones in college and used them to store DVDs, toiletries, makeup, even my bulky home printer. One day, someone (who shall remain nameless) bumped into it and my world came crashing down. My shit went everywhere. Luckily my printer survived, but I never looked at these cubes the same way. Cheap? Yes. Cute? Yep. Versatile? Absolutely. Sturdy? Hell no. After that incident, I swore off cheap storage cubes.

The doors allow you to discreetly stash tampons, condoms, and toys.
Here are three of my favorite iCube storage solutions.

“I’m outdoorsy in that I like getting drunk on patios,” pretty much sums me up to a T.
