Whether you live in a small, tiny or large space, organizing your stuff (and keeping it organized!) is paramount. Clutter can make a space of any size feel impossibly small. Investing in useful storage solutions can make all the difference when living in a home of any size, but especially living tiny. Once you have successfully decluttered, you can begin organizing all your remaining belongings and making sure everything has a home.
Since I only had a month to complete the trailer remodel, it didn’t give me an opportunity to customize all the storage areas before moving in. So the first month was simply figuring out where everything needed to be to be as useful as possible. My goal is to always keep my living spaces highly functional and simple; while still feeling comfortable and not depriving myself of anything. It’s fascinating how many things we still own that we could easily live without. But for those things that truly need to be held on to even if they’re not used every single day (think of items like cooking supplies, office equipment, tools etc.) investing in useful storage solutions is an absolute must to keep your space looking clean and functional.
1- Blouse Tree | These things are like magic in my tiny closet!
2- Sturdy Clear Plastic Containers | Perfect for storing nicknacks and must-haves that are you need to easily be able to locate. We have several of these in our hidden couch storage.
3- 3-Shelf Spice Racks | Install these in every cabinet. Not only can they hold spices but small boxes, books, office supplies and so much more!
4- Storage Ottoman | Every piece of furniture we have doubles as storage. These storage ottomans are a great way to get extra moveable setting and storage in one.
5- Corner Shelf | Utilizing otherwise wasted corner wall space to display some personal items to really make your tiny space feel like home.
6-Tie Belt Valet Hangers | I hang all my necklaces and accessories on these in the closet and it is such a game-changer. And don’t forget to invest in some thin velvet hangers these are truly space-saving lifesavers and keeps your clothes from slipping on to the floor.

A variety of trays are a great way to keep those keys and little nicknacks all together in one spot. Boxes, like this cute black and white one from One Kings Lane is a great way to keep those less than display worthy trinkets handy, but out of sight.
When you work from home it is important to keep it as separate as possible so you can ‘keep work at work’ this foldaway Watts workstation from Pottery Barn is the perfect space-saving solution. I love that it’s low profile and you can quickly fold everything up and out of the way when you’re done for the day.
Utilize wall spaces, especially inside cabinets. Install organizers like a wall-mounted jewelry holder inside a closet door to maximize otherwise wasted space.
