This really belongs in a "general tips and tricks" type of forum, but I don't see one...

Am I the only guy who has very limited space in which to store all the "stuff" that has resulted from my extreme NAS problem? Well, here's a tip that has helped me to find the lens I want, quickly and safely (compared with rummaging around on a shelf.)

The answer is to spend $25 on a behind-the-door shoe storage "hanger", and put it on the closet door where you keep your gear.

Note that it wasn't at all easy to find a hanger FOR MEN'S shoes, but they are available. I keep all my lenses in Think Tank lens cases (the ones which fit on a TT harness/belt) and the pockets in the hanger are just big enough for cased 14-24mm f/2.8 and 70-200mm f/2.8 lenses. No, they don't take a 400/2.8!

I can't recommend this approach highly enough! I found these items in stock at "The Container Store", Santana Row, San Jose

(Now, I have such a lot more shelf space that I don't need to cure my NAS just yet - AND, I even have a second door for a second hanger...)
