4. Store Your Computer in a Carboard Desk
Cardboard Desk This computer desk and shelves set is made of 100% recyclable carboard. When you are done using the desk, you can just flatten it to a pulp, literally!
What's cool is that you can put your books and your booze all in one place, and if you have guests over to your miserable hovel, you can just close this thing up so they can't see all your crud. And if they get really curious, you can just pour some water on it and just melt it down just enough to make opening it really difficult. (Furniture )
