I went from living in 950 square feet to a meager 504 this past spring. It’s amazing how quickly you can learn how to use every inch of space for storage. Living with narrow spaces and very little square footage makes every inch of floor invaluable. Especially when you’re number one enemy is clutter! I try my best to keep storage against walls, in small nooks, and up high- mostly to avoid that claustrophobic elevator-esque feeling.
