"Japanese people sleep on beds called futon. These are laid out on the tatami floor. When people wake up they pack the futon
away in a cupboard, to make more space in the room." (Oxford Dolphin Readers).

Above, the part " pack the futon away in a cupboard" confuses me because: With away, I understand out of home so what does "Pack away" refer to?
