    No Closet Space? No Problem.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    I recently moved into what is, with the exception of my Freshman dorm room, the smallest space I have ever lived in (I’m from Texas, land of the large apartment). My new place is about 500 square feet. As a result, I find myself extremely lacking in closet space. I have two tiny closets – one in the bedroom and one in the living room, in which I keep my vacuum and other cleaning supplies, tools, lightbulbs, etc. So how to cope? I’ve already sold or donated everything I haven’t worn in the last 6 months, added hooks to every door to hang coats, purses and bags, and stowed things under the bed. Still, I’ve got things I can’t find a place for. So, I was excited to find this idea at Imagination Breakfast. Not only is it a pretty way to display your favorite items or your outfit for the next day, it’s up and out of your way.

    Save to Clipboard

    I ran across this fantastic idea for storing your favorite jewelry in a Buzzfeed post about space-saving ideas for storing clothes and accessories. Why not use those gorgeous necklaces as art when you’re not wearing them? See the rest of their clothing organization ideas here.

    Storage as Art

    A great idea from A Beautiful Mess for creating extra storage without looking cluttered. This is perfect for those of us with small kitchens. Everything is close at hand, which means no more rummaging through stacks of pans in lower cabinets.

    Landmarks

    Did you ever watch Overboard? Yes, that movie where Goldie Hawn gets amnesia and Kurt Russel tricks her into thinking they’re still married. Well, one summer when I was a kid – for reasons I can now only imagine – I watched it at least 15 times. Now I can’t see a famous landmark without thinking about the landmark mini-golf course they built.

    But maybe that’s just me. Travel-inspired ring holders, $12 each from Anthropologie.

    Storage and Stripes


    These Rugby Stripes Bins are a great way to hide papers, supplies and anything else that doesn’t quite fit in your cabinets and closets. I’m thinking of getting a few to put on top of my built-in shelving unit to hold extra paper towels, toilet paper and linens. $10-15 each at the Container Store.
