13 Beautiful Organization Ideas For People Without Closet Space

Very recently, I found myself tackling something I have dreamed of doing since I was 15 years old — trekking up and down Manhattan, looking for an apartment to rent. It’s something that I knew would be stressful and exciting, and I was especially keen to see what my allotted monthly budget would afford me in such a town. After what seemed like hours of sprinting up and down flights of stairs, dodging pedestrians with my sopping wet umbrella and hauling my crossbody bag full of paperwork, we had made it through.

Although we still haven’t found our perfect place just yet, I walked away with an incredibly different perspective on the amount of space that 2 people have to fit their lives into. It became apparent to me that I would have learn how to utilize every inch of my apartment and make it count. Closet space (or lack thereof ) will undoubtedly be the biggest challenge for me. Having lived in the suburbs all my life, this was an area that I never had to think about organizing smartly or simplifying. As I prepare myself for the Big Move, I’ve began researching tips and tricks to make these tiny alcoves work, while maintaining an aesthetically pleasing looks while being functional.
