Now on to some organization business! A lot of you have emailed me about how I find room for storage in a row home. Why? Because, row homes = super small spaces. My house is only 14 feet wide people ;.) crazy, right? So I was determined when we moved into this old gal that I would squeeze as much function out of her as possible. So this is how we did it ;.)
*helpful tip numero uno...create as many built In's whenever possible! We carved out an extra little storage space when going down into the basement. It seemed like such a waste before & now it acts as a place for me to store extra toilet paper, paper towels, water, etc....
*tip numero dos....always think outside the box ;.) I like to look for containers that not only look pretty but can store every day used items. For example...I like to store baby formula in this...
* My last tip is;.) ... Always finding a way to work with what you got...for example, I wanted to be able to have access to my cleaning supplies easily without knocking everything down every time I reached in the back to grab something. So I installed these pull out wire shelf/drawers. They were only $8 and make the space underneath the kitchen sink so much more accessible.
Yet...tuck everything nicely away when not is use ;.)
Look at it this way, finding storage in small space is like a puzzle. Just as rewarding but not quite as fun haha! I try to be clever when going about a plan and I am always looking for ideas & storing them in the good ol' memory bank. So I hope this post was functional and helped all of you who were wondering where I hid all my stuff ;.) Ohhh believe me it's there people, it's there...just hiding & that's the way I like it! ;.)
So that is it today my peeps. Not the most exciting post in the world but I just wanted to share some of my small space storage tips for those of you who wanted to know how to solve some of these problems. I want to hear all about your storage solutions as well, so tell me ;.) See ya tomorrow!
