We all like to have our little space where we get a sense of freedom. You are the king/queen of your apartment where you can do whatever you like and whenever you want.
However, living in an apartment, especially in the beginning, when you are building your career, poses its challenges. You have to live in a tiny apartment, and it’s not easy to manage your stuff correctly. All the extra stuff adds trouble into the already clogged spaces. Sometimes, it can be very annoying when you can’t find something that you need. But, some simple tips can save you a lot of space and help you organise your stuff. Check out these 15 DIYs to help you manage your apartment space:
1. Toothbrush Holder
Make small cuts in your bathroom cupboards and hang your toothbrushes on them. It will save you space as well as money.
2. Top-Fix The Jars
Fix the metal lids of your jars to the ceiling of the cupboards. This utilises the top space of a shelf which will otherwise go waste. Also, you don’t need two hands to open the lid of the jars. Just twist the glass jar, and it will open.
3. Jewellery Organiser
Organising jewellery is not an easy task. They often get jumbled, and it becomes almost impossible to untangle them. Install some pins and hoops to your cabinet and hang your jewellery onto these.
