Tips for Living in a Small Apartment

Tips for Living in a Small Apartment

Are you looking at moving into a small apartment?? Needing some ideas on how to help save space?? Well I had a similar situation...Neil (my amazing hubby) and I really wanted to live downtown Austin for a year. We thought it would be a fun little adventure!! After looking for apartments we finally settled on one just off Lady Bird Lake...not downtown but close enough. We LOVE the location and it's been a great little adventure...but our space is tiny!! Maybe not as tiny as living in like New York City...but it's about 600 sq ft!! That's tiny for us!! Before we got married, I was living in an 800 sq ft apartment and Neil was living in a rental house. We were both downsizing...and moving in together...and wedding gifts were arriving daily!! We had to come up with a game plan....here's what's worked for us:

Why is it so hard to put together a wedding registry?? I mean if I had gotten married right out of college...it would've been sssoo much easier!! I graduated college with 2 plastic bowls and 2 plastic plates...I could've created a wedding registry with 1000 things back then.  But I didn't get engaged until like 7 years after college!! By that time I'd gotten a real job, moved into a real apartment, taught myself to cook something other than ramen noodles, and bought some decent kitchen/household items.
