How can I save space in a small apartment?

Organize and save space in your small apartment

I remember when I first moved out on my own. I had plenty of room when I lived at my parents house, but when I moved into a small apartment, I felt like I was constantly junked in because I didn't have enough room for my stuff. That brings me to today's question - how can I save space when I live in a small apartment? Let's take a look at three items that are relatively inexpensive that can help. All of them are available through Amazon Prime with Free One-Day Shipping. Don't worry if you're not a member - there's an offer at the bottom of the page where you can try Amazon Prime for free for 30 days.

  • Closet Organizing Hangers: these hangers give you the ability to hang nine pieces of clothing from one hanger. Scroll through the pictures on the website and you'll see what I mean. Not only can you hang more from one hanger, but you can organize your clothing (something I'm still not good at!). My suggestion would be to use these hangers but hang your clothing from your existing hangers (rather than getting rid of what you already have). Here's the best part - there's currently a $4 off coupon (make sure to click to place a check in the box for it), so each packet of six hangers will only cost $10.99 instead of $14.99! If you are an Amazon Prime member, you'll see that they're offering Prime Free One-Day Shipping on this item. Think about it - a $10.99 purchase will allow you to hang 54 pieces of clothing in less space!

  • Behind the Door Shoe Organizer: I always just thought of a behind the door shoe organizer as just that - a place to store shoes. A friend of mine pointed out that you can use them to store all sorts of things, especially if you get one that's clear so you can see what's inside the pockets. She uses them in multiple rooms inside of closets for extra storage space. One in her kitchen closet stores spices, one in the bathroom closet stores bathroom items (soap, deodorant, wash cloths, makeup, etc), one behind the bedroom door stores shoes, and one in the bedroom closet stores small pieces of clothing (socks, underwear, belts, accessories, etc). Here's a few additional ideas: kids toys, craft supplies, or small tools. For $6.99 each with Free Prime One-Day Shipping, this might be what you need for saving space in a small apartment. Honestly, I think they're great even if you're in a big place with plenty of room - it seems to me that they'd help anyone get more organized.

  • Expandable Pan Rack Organizer: Here's another interesting gadget for saving space whether you're in a small apartment or not - an expandable pan rack organizer. They say you can use it to store your pans, lids, bakeware, and other cookware. It has 7 adjustable and expandable compartments for storage, and no special tools are needed. You can adjust this to 11 inches, 17.4 inches, or 23 inches, and the dividers can be placed where you want them to be so you can fit your cookware neatly in the rack. The pan racks are $20.95. There is also a pot rack for $23.95 less 6% coupon or a large pot rack for $29.99 less 6% coupon. All of these also come with Free Prime One-Day Shipping.

Moving into a smaller place than you're used to can be difficult, but finding the right products can be the key to making it work for you.
