Often times, when you start packing your home to ready yourself for moving day, you’ll notice that you are finding things that you didn’t know you had or had forgotten somewhere along the way. Quickly, this amount of new stuff will pile up and start to bog down your packing boxes. If you are moving into a house that’s smaller than the one you previously lived in, this can cause you problems in the amount of living space you have. To help you with this, we’ve come up with a list of things you can do in order to save space in your new living space.

Clear Your Entryway

This is the first place in your home that your guests will see, so it’s important to keep it presentable. Add a bench or sitting space so that people have somewhere to take off their shoes and put their things. If the space is too small for a bench, make sure you have shelving or hooks so that there’s room to place items.

Your Cooking Area

The kitchen is the busiest place in your home, so make sure it’s optimized for space and comfort. Maximize your space with vertical shelving in your pantry and use drawer organizers for food storage containers and dry foods that don’t need the refrigerator.

Spruce Up Your Bathroom

We use our bathrooms everyday. In fact, it’s often the very first place we go to in the morning. Assess who uses what bathroom and what exactly they need. Utilize open shelving to store the items that you need at  hand every day and baskets under your sink for items such as extra toilet paper rolls or other supplies that are needed, but not daily. Consider putting in accessories that you wear in your bathroom such as belts and scarves.
