I picked up a few cases of #10 cans at the LDS cannery the other night and really didn't have any place to put them. So I pulled the couch away from the wall and stacked them behind. Crazy, I know. But you haven't seen my house. I'm really running out of room to put food. Maybe that's a sign we need to eat more or something. ;)
I put the taped bottoms of the boxes toward the couch to reduce the rub factor and labeled the bottoms so I knew what each box was from the side I could see when I pull the couch out. I pushed the couch back against the boxes and only lost about 10 inches of space in the living room. I made a map on one of the end boxes also so I knew what was back there without having to pull the couch out unless I want to get to some of it.
Anyone want to come build me an addition?
