Since we’re prepping to move in less than a month, we’re excited to take full advantage of gaining a clean slate.

(And by prepping, we mean that we’ve brought home one measly cardboard box.)

We’ve been searching high and low for creative ways to organize and use space. And these are a few favorites to recreate.

Do you work from home but are lacking space and want a designated work area? We love this office in a closet idea.

Just remove the closet pole, add an upper covered storage area, a floating middle shelf, and a minimal work desk and you’ve got your own home office!

9 — Repurpose old suitcases to organize miscellaneous supplies.

  1. After moving into a 640 sq.ft.home 32yrs ago & a few remodelings since, I’m still looking for clever ways to store things & save space! I love all the ideas I’ve found on pintrest!

  2. This is great! super inspiring! I’m also moving soon (and then drastically downsizing into a tiny house on wheels) and would love to try some of these out! I love the vintage suitcase organizer, I have stacks and stacks of those I need to find a use for! Thanks for the tips and pics :)

  3. I love number 3 especially, my jewellery on display gets dusty easily, but I like to have it out on display so I can see it all….this is a very happy medium!

  4. Hi Ashley,

    I will post this comment for a third time as wordpress is making an error of
    the name of my blog ! Please delete the two earlier comments.

    A good post about being creative while also managing to keep things tidy and make
    the best use of the space available.

    I’m sure many people like tips like this, especially after moving home and unpacking boxes !
