I can't figure out storage. My fiancee and I currently share one room until we can move out of her parents and into our own place and it's just too cramped! No matter what kind of storage solution we come up with, we're still stuck in a cramped, messy room. We have hanging shelves, ottomans filled to the brim, baskets and boxes and there's still stacks of books everywhere and the laundry piles up in less than two days. What other storage solutions do you have for very cramped quarters?
More stuff than storage has two solutions: more storage or less stuff. If you’re already maximizing your storage (vertical storage, underbed, furniture with storage, etc.), the only way to gain more space is by having less stuff.
If you can find more storage solutions (even offsite, maybe), great, but a space can only hold so many things. Just make sure you’re maximizing every square inch available to you.
