In a few short months were adding another little one to our family. The end of February is our swap date, my parents are going to come over and help us clean and swap rooms around and get everything set up. Im looking for some space saving ideas for all rooms. We have a decent sized apartment but it already feels cluttered sometimes. Please share any ideas you may have. Thank you ladies!
When I lived in small spaces I was a fan of those over the door shoe racks. You can use them for so much more then just shoes. I had one in the bathroom for things like hair products, extras of small things like toothpaste, brushes/combs, etc. I had one I kept things like packets of tissues, extra shoelaces, cough drops, bandaids on our spare bedroom door. Under bed boxes are great for out of season clothes or extra blankets. They also make bed risers to raise the bed a few inches to put more underneath. I have never had a large kitchen so I frequently try to store things in jars or containers so that the packaging doesn't take up as much room.
I was going to say just about everything WidgetMommy said!
I am an organizing queen... back of the door shoe racks are awesome. Great for small clothes items like socks and undies and leggings. I have one hanging in my bathroom, DD6 's room, linen closet, pantry... I love them (and, sometimes you can find them at the dollar store).
I think the ladies have it covered. I would first purge as much as you can (toys, clothes, etc) then we used the over the door racks a lot too. Bed risers, containers, etc. The dollar store has a lot of cheap containers and baskets.
I also saw on a show where they put towel racks on the inside of their closet doors. Then they would hang women's necklaces and scarfs on that instead of having it out. But I would think you could find other uses for it. For toys my friend uses those clear bin drawer things and has all the drawers labeled to help keep toys organized. For stuffed animals my kids used to have those hammock things you hang from the ceiling corners.
When our basement is finished I plan on doing this to help with organizing my 1 year old's toys: Kid
