I was flattered when Hometalk approached me to curate a board on space saving secrets. This subject is near and dear to my heart and one I’m determined to master. They couldn’t have picked a better topic for me to present.
Because the challenges of living in small space require…no, demand that space saving techniques be used as often as possible.
This post got me thinking about space saving secrets and home organization. In my mind they go hand in hand with the common goal of freeing up space and living with less clutter while making a pretty home. This is an ongoing struggle for me living in a small house. I’m sure it is for many of my readers as well.
As I picked out my favorite space saving secrets I also realized that a few picks aren’t really secrets at all. They’re things we know and maybe forgot along the way. A few of my other selections are über creative, others are classics and some were just plain cool.
Here’s a little peek of what you’ll find on my Hometalk curated board.
