      A bargain

      I bought this many years ago when I lived in my old house. The reason I felt I needed this was that I had a built in wardrobe and at the time no chest of drawers so I needed something to house various bits and pieces of clothing. This cost me around the £5 mark at the time of purchase. I have mine in grey but there were also black and white versions in the store. The organiser is made from a polyester which remind me of a canvas type material. The measurements of the organiser are 120cm x 35cm x 34cm and it consists of 5 shelves. The organiser comes packed flat as a square and when it is removed from the packaging it opens up meaning it can be easily stored at home. The top of the organiser has two velcro tabs which at first I thought wouldn't be strong enough to hold the organiser on the wardrobe rail when hung. I did however underestimate the stickiness of the organiser it is a struggle to get the thing back off once it is stuck to the rail. The top and bottom shelf of the organiser have a hard insert to help it keep it's shape but the inner shelves are made from polyester. My wardrobe doesn't have enough space for this to fully stretch out. I currently use this to store underwear on the top two shelves, socks on the third and the bottom two is my running kit. All of these items are lightweight so it doesn't sag or gape anywhere. I have in the past filled this with t-shirts and leggings and it was fine for this task. I would recommend this organiser it is great for storing clothes in your wardrobe particularly if it lacks shelf space. For the money this is a bargain ad I have had many years use out of it. full marks from me.

      a great storage solution

      When i moved home, i moved into a room in a house. I'm only going to be here for approximately 1 year and so I didn't feel like spending lots of money on furniture etc. However I ended up with a wardrobe with lots and lots of dead space. A trip to Ikea was soon needed, and I came away with a multitude of bits of pieces, one of which being the Skubb clothes organiser. It cost 6 pounds, and came in many colours - black, white, purple, blue, and a flowery print. I picked up the purple, which came flat packed. When you unpack it, you find that there is a velcro strap used to attach it to a rail pole. The material is very sturdy and I felt pretty secure that my clothes would be held. My skubb organiser actually has 8 compartments, two small ones at the bottom which have a set of compartments that can be drawn out - literally like drawers. I use these to hold jewellery, watches etc. Small tricket items. The 6 larger ones are used to house my jumpers and jeans and its incredibly useful. Each compartment holds plenty of clothing items and since getting it i'm find my wardrobe is definitely more organised. I don't think I could be without this item and I highly recommend them to anyone who needs help with storage in their home.

      A really useful item for the home!

      When it comes to being an organised person....well I really am not. I am unorganised, untidy and although I have my own flat and should at 38 years old be able to live any way that I want to sadly I cant because my Mum lives a few minutes away and goes mad at me lol! I suffer with M.E and a whole host of other issues and the other day I was doing a bit of reading about M.E and one of the things that really tires me out is cleaning and tidying and so I thought about ways of trying to keep things easier in my life to handle. One of my problem areas is storage. I tend to do a load of washing and end up with nowhere to put it really as I own so much clobber and so stuff gets dumped all over the place and I can't find anything so when I was in Ikea recently with my mum and we spotted these they seemed a good and cheap option and I actually bought a couple of these organisers in black, one for each one of my wardrobes. They come flat packed and no assembly or tools are needed and they are simple to pop into a wardrobe thankfully! What you get is an oblong organiser with a velcro section which simply hooks to your wardrobe pole and it hangs down and it measures 22x34x120 cm. It feels robust and quite hard material and its made of polyester with the shelving being made of Polypropylene plastic. The shelves in it are sturdy and a little flexible and once popped into the wardrobe and hooked on you simply pop what you want to on the shelves just make sure you don't overload it! I use mine for t-shirts and vest tops.......allsorts really and it gives me quite alot of extra storage room. I don't put things it that will roll out of it like socks as although this has a back to it it doesn't have a front and its fully open. All in all I really think these are a great thing to own and really useful. Its so simple to put in a wardrobe that even I can do it simply so thumbs up from I! Only available from Ikea stores for £4.00

        A brilliant item that has made our wardrobe much more functional - and tidy!

        Because of the layout of our bedroom and position of the bed, we bought a triple wardrobe when we changed furniture as it fitted the available space perfectly. It has three cupboards, we both have one of the outer cupboards each, but the middle cupboard fast became a bit of a no man's land - neither of us used it properly and it ended up with piles of random things that had no other place to go, just stuffed in and the door closed fast, hoping things wouldn't fall back out! When we visited Ikea a couple of months ago, we came across the Skubb clothes organiser in the bedroom furniture section. They had it hung up in a wardrobe on the display and although we never measured it, it looked as though it would fit in the cupboard perfectly. Ikea is basically a big shop that you look around and if you see anything you fancy, you can either pick it up there and then (if it's a small item) or jot down the location of the item to be picked up in the warehouse part at the end (if it's a larger item). This item comes folded down very flat and so it can be picked up while walking around the main part of the store, meaning no need to wander aimlessly round the warehouse for hours trying to find it. At full height it measures 120cm x 35cm x 34cm. It's designed to be a clothes organiser really but ours doesn't hold any clothes, although it would hold quite a lot of folded clothes if we wanted. It comes with two chunky material loops at the top so that it can be attached to the wardrobe rail and has velcro to open and close the loops so you don't have to bother removing the wardrobe rail to attach it. It is designed to just hang down within the wardrobe, giving 5 compartments at full stretch, each about 30cm x 30cm. It is quite wide but not massively so - in a normal sized wardrobe it would probably take up around a third of the wardrobe hanging space. I think they're actually designed for us in their own ikea branded wardrobes, but ours works fine in our non-ikea one. I use all of the organiser to hold things we don't use everyday, it holds small storage boxes with the 2 for 1 shower gels and other toiletries that I've bought in special offers that we haven't got round to using and all of my photo albums. There is a fair bit of storage. The size of each compartment looks ideal size really for holding shoe boxes to me. It's made of polyester material and feels as though it would be quite easy to wipe clean, although it's not something I've tried. As the organiser is white, I was expecting it to pick up marks very quickly but ours hasn't so I haven't needed to. It is also available in other colours - they had only had the black one in stock apart from white in our local store but there is a purple one also available. There are also lots of other storage options available in the same range if you fancied buying a few different types for a room. It doesn't quite fit at it's full length in the middle cupboard because of the drawers we have underneath, but it is still very much usable in the gap, it just means the bottom shelf is squashed up a bit to the one above so isn't the full height it's supposed to be. I still get use from this shelf though, I store thin items in it such as birthday cards. I'm so glad we spotted this on our mooch around Ikea - to me the best thing about it was the price, only £8. This to me, was a great bargain. For very little money, we now we get lots of use out of a space we couldn't use much previously and the area looks so much tidier, a brilliant buy! Thanks for reading :o)

          great storage solution!

          These are great for organising your wardrobe space - if like me you have far too many clothes, shoes, bags and other accessories then these are perfect. They cost around £6 from Ikea and come flat packed, no assembley is required, simply unpack and then hand from the pole in your wardrobe. The top of the hanger has a handle that can be wrapped around the pole in your wardrobe and then fastens with velcro. You might not this is a very strong way of holding it up, especially with the weight of clothes inside it but I packed mine very very full and it never fell down. Its great for keeping your clothes such as t-shirts and tops folded up in, which is what I used mine for at first. However now I have found it is the perfect size to hold my shoes, I got sick of digging around in the bottom of my wardrobe going through all my shoes trying to find the other shoe of a pair, thats when I decided to keep them in this. It keeps them all on display and is the perfect shape and width to keep a few pairs in each pocket. I purchased a white one but they also come in other colours such as black and cream, I have had mine for almost 4 years not and it is still going strong and has never fallen down. Overall I would definitely recommend these to anyone looking to sort out their wardrobes and as a bit more storage space!

          A great bargain space saver

          The bane of my life is our wardrobes! They are small and have just 1 rail on which tries to accommodate both mine and my boyfriends clothes...it just doesn't happen! So on a trip to Ikea I spotted the Skubb Storage range. This particular item is the Skubb with 5 compartments. It hangs on you rail in you wardrobe and provide loads more storage by hanging vertically! At just £7.99 this was to be a life saver! It comes flat packed and simply unfolds and 2 loops fasten to your rail for it to hang onto. The Skubb is 120 cm long and nice and slim at just 34 cm width and 35 cm depth. It takes up the same room as around 5/6 shirts. It looks very basic and the material is a cheap plastic that doesn't hold its shape very well. We got the white colour and this has faded to a grey colour after a year or so, so I would recommend the black colour for anyone else This Skrubb has 5 compartments or shelves which will easily store clothes and bedding. They are a thin polypropylene plastic so the shelves do sag a lot if there is anything of any weight in there. It would have been nicer if these had been a little stronger to stop the sagging, but for £7.99 you can't expect anything else. You can purchase a variety of boxes etc that fit into the compartments as well which act like drawers. I have got 2 of these and they seem to make the Skrubb itself a lot sturdier and helps it to hold it shape so this was a bonus! The Skrubb comes in 3 colours, white, black and lilac. It is so easy to assemble and provide so much more space in our wardrobe I would recommend it to anyone who wants more storage at a cheap price

          great when space is restricted

          I always seem to have a problem with space and storage. I try to have clear-outs and throw things away, but I'm just a real horder and seem to end up lot's of stuff and tell myself that it may come in useful one day. Because I do tend to hord things, I find that Ikea is a really good place for me to shop. I tend to find lot's of storage solutions, that make a lot out of a small space and organise me, at a minimal cost. When I saw this I thought it would be a great way to store my pyjamas in my wradrobe, along with underwear and odd pieces that I wanted folded rather than hung up on hangers. I got mine for £5.99 which I thought was very reasonable. I have seen them at cheaper prices, but they look really flimsy and delicate, whereas this seems a bit more sturdy, so it's worth the little bit extra. I used it for a couple of months, untill I had a big clearout and changed everything around. I now keep my handbags in it and it's really good and works well. It takes up a bit of space, but gives you so much more because it is quite long. It is still in perfect condition and hasn't buckled in the middle like a previous, cheaper one did. It measures about 16cm across, which isn't much at all, perhaps the space of about 6 or 7 tops maybe but it would easily hold around twenty adult sized T-shirts, probably a lot more. I brought mine in white. but you can get them in black, orange and I think I saw pink too. A great product to organise a small space and at £5.99 you can't really ask for more.

          Saves so much space and doesn't take up much room.

          I bought this clothes organiser to store in my daughters wardrobe, although it's not much to look at (unless you get a fancy coloured/patterned one) they are so useful and who's going to see it inside a wardrobe anyway. My daughter isn't actually born yet (was due 4 days ago) but she has been given so many items of clothings from friends and family that just a simply wardrobe isn't enough to store it all. This probably takes up the same space that 5 or 6 T-shirts would and it drops right down to the bottom of the wardrobe creating so much room for other items. I think the only downfall would be that whatever is stored in this has to be folded and can not be hung, but thats not too much of a problem really. It can also store other items such as toys or shoes aswell. All in all I find this to be a very productive buy.
