I felt the need to clean and try and organize before the new year came around. How much can a person do in such a small place? You would be surprised. My disposal was on it’s way OUT when I moved in back in August. It finally quit and had to be replaced yesterday on New Years Eve day. The cabinet under the sink had to be cleared out and YES, you guessed it I had to re-do the whole cabinet. Found stuff under there I had no idea was there. WHY I kept it all I have no idea.  I got all done and still it looked too cluttered. Just cannot win I guess. It has been YEARS since I really lived in a one bedroom apartment for a long time. In California, I had plenty of storage area and managed well. Here, I have found storage of my things and some of my mother’s, really hard to manage. I keep moving  things around hoping it will work. I remember the saying over and over again..”If you bring something in, you must take something out”. 

MY walk-in closet is so nice, but soo full! Must get cracking at trying to make it hold more and KNOW what is in each area. I bought new hangers, the skinny kind. WORKED great. I highly recommend them,they save a ton of space.


Good thing I am not a big shoe person, or I would be in real trouble. Any good ideas or hints will really be appreciated on organizing things better, especially on a tight budget.  This new year truly will be full of changes. I hope it will be a healthy, happy and prosperous one for us all.

  1. I know just how you feel Sis! I moved here from 3bedrooms and 2 bathrooms and lots of closet place. I keep getting rid of stuff and moving stuff around and I never gain any more space. LOL

  2. Yup. It’s hard to downsize but it has to be done! We seem to collect too much STUFF and it gets too cumbersome over time. Would love to have a HUGE garage sale and sell most of it!
    Hope you have a GREAT 2015! I’m looking forward to it and still adjusting to not having kids around all the time. It certainly is different.
