Organizational Tips To Help You Stay Neat And Tidy When Moving Into A Smaller ApartmentKeeping items off the floor and organized is a difficult task in a large home, but the feat is nearly impossible when a person has to move into a smaller sized apartment.

In many instances, there is so much stuff that just the act of walking between locations is challenging. To reduce clutter, some peoplerent storage lockers, but this act produces an additional monthly budgetary expense that not everyone can afford. Use these tips to keep your new apartment in order, cleaned up, and as spacious as possible.


Apartment Organizational Tips


1. Consider Purchasing A Shoe Rack For Closet Storage

Men, women, and children love shoes, sneakers, and other types of footwear. However, as the collection grows, people find themselves in the middle of a dilemma. They do not have space for all of the pairs, and the shoes soon spill out of the closet floor and into the room. Choose a design that hangs on the door or slides under the bed to maximize floor space. There are countless options available at online or brick and mortar retailers, so be sure to find the one that best suits your needs.


2. A Shower Caddy Can Prove To Be A Useful Tool

Depending on the apartment that a person chooses, the bathroom is not always huge. Cabinet space is limited, and edges of tubs become cluttered with shampoo, conditioner, and body wash bottles. This action does not continually pose a problem, but after knocking the containers into the bottom of the tub for what feels like a millionth time, residents might find themselves in need of an organizational solution. Models are available that hang from the shower arm, have suction cups for sticking to the wall, or feature self-standing corner designs that adjust in height. Choose wisely, and gain a clutter-freezone that you will appreciate while bathing.


3. Maximize Kitchen Storage Space With Under Cabinet Racks

There never seems to be enough room for spices and herbs in a kitchen. People wind up putting the saltand pepper shakers on the back of their stove or in a window sill. This method keeps the containers out of the way and in an easy to reach location, but it also makes the room less visually appealing. A Lazy-Susan type spic rack can sit on the counter or inside a cabinet to hold the essential cooking supplies. It will maximize your storage space and make your cooking experience in the new apartment more enjoyable.
