If you are moving out of your parents' home, you likely will not move into that six bedroom mansion right away. If you consider your space tiny, storage can feel like it is non-existent. I moved into a one bedroom that had the kitchen sharing a space with the sitting space. I loved it. I was so proud of myself to be able to provide for myself. I had to get clever about the space though.
Here are some tricks you can use to store your stuff in an organized way:
1. Storage Baskets
These can fit easily under your bed and on top of shelves around the house. Get creative and stick these under the coffee table too. These are good for storing everyday items such as books and cables plus they give the room a more organized look. If these baskets come with a cover, that a plus. You can also pick a metal or plastic basket which are easy to clean.
2. Same size mason jars
This is good for your kitchen area. They can stand side by side on your shelf so as to save space. You can also get tiny plastic containers for your spices. These containers also allow you to stick on label to avoid confusion. This can be a fun DIY project.
Store your special occasion outfits in a suitcase. This saves on your closet space and also makes it less prone to damage. Remember to add mothballs or silica gel sachets.
