If anyone knows where you can pick up those crates cheaply please pass it on because the last ones I bought for the shop were £15 each and that was supposed to be with a discount for trade! By my calculations that 'inexpensive' storage would cost at least £150, how much is an Ikea Billy bookcase these days? :D

Quite a few rental properties (that I'm aware of in the UK) actually now have restrictions against using Blu/White Tack on walls. The recommended alternative is "Command Strips", which can be found in most DIY stores and even supermarkets, meaning that you can put up picture frames and ditch the "student look".

They aren't cheap though!! Bout 4 pounds for one picture frames worth. I also find it'll you have slightly damp walls as a lot of renters do the pictures fall down
