10 Ways to Squeeze Storage into your Small Space

I’ve mentioned this many times before, but I live in a pretty small home and I LOVE gathering small-space organizing ideas. Today I found even more smart ideas, and below you will find 10 ways to squeeze storage into your small space.

1) I have a ton of craft supplies and they get messy. Set up a little crafting space with a pegboard and rolling cart, and you’re all set. Found on The 36th Avenue.
