This afternoon I wrote a second blog post all about some extortionately expensive “storage solutions” I recently saw in Habitat. It was quite long and (moderately) funny. It had pictures and links and everything. Actually it was one of the links which let me down. I t didn’t seem to be working and, in attempting to fix it, I managed to make the whole post disappear! Boo! Anyway, here is a distillation of my original post:
