Tricks For Limited Spaces
Sometimes, the clutter isn’t the result of disorganization but a simple need for more space. If that’s the case in any of your problem areas, go vertical. Short of knocking down a wall, there is nothing you can do to change the square footage of your spaces. But, you can maximize wall and door space by using hooks, racks, and mounted shelving to extend your storage space. For example:
- Add a hanging rack on the inside door of your pantry, closet, or even your bathroom.
- Put a set of hooks in your living room to keep hats, bags, and purses off of end tables and coffee tables.
- And finally, strategically mount a few shelves in any space where you find the available surface are simply insufficient.
