I have 2 daughters 12 and 11. They share a room but just have way too much stuff. I need some ideas on cute inexpensive storage for them. They have bunk beds so there is only one bed to store stuff under. Please help me....

Suspending storage from the ceiling may help with some of it.  Try googling suspended storage. I am thinking of the storage I've seen of a heavy chain attached to the ceiling and net bags for storage attached to the chain with S hooks.  Also shoe holders hooked over the back of the door or even attached to the walls for smaller items. There are wall storage units with cubbies, space for pull out baskets, drawers, cabinets.

Menards has lower cost storage ideas.  I hang most of my boys clothes and use rubbermaids for lot's of stuff.

Adding shelves in the closets rather than just having hanging racks always helps.  Under the bottom shelf you can place add'l plastic storage drawers.

Hanging short cabinets (16-20" tall)  up high around the top perimeter of room may work.  Actual kitchen upper cabinets, typically used above a refrigerator or stove.   In white or whatever color matches their room.  Things they don't use all of the time (out of season clothes, blankets, shoes, toys) can be tucked away behind closed doors, making more room in the closets.

Maybe you could also hang shoe bags on either side of the bunk bed to store little things.

Closet organizers and hangers that fold down are great.

You could always eliminate toys too. I go through twice a year, (just before x-mas and just before b-day) and do a big elimination of toys. Little stuff goes if I see it not being used too.
