If you’re on a furniture budget and want dead simple storage, perhaps a modular Yube would do the trick.  Each 13″-cubed Yube assembles in a jiff with snap-together sides, steel-frame locks, and corner clips.  The panels are made from sugar cane waste fibers (biodegradable and compostable), while the frame is made of a blend of plastic and bamboo (recyclable).  Yubes can be used as garage storage, a coffee table, a tv stand or anything else.  Cubes sell for about $30 each.
