I cannot believe it, but I am still under the weather from this nasty cold! Because I’ve spent so much time cooped up in our tiny bungalow, I felt like it was a good opportunity to share more details of how we live. Today is really specific: it’s all about how our small kitchen is organized. I took a quick video showing what’s inside each cabinet, how we use our storage, and a few of the storage tools I can’t live without!

Closet Tour + How to Organize a Small Closet with GetClairefied (video)

Featured Video Play Icon

A few months ago (!!!), my good friend Claire Gould, aka GetClairefied, came over to teach us how to organize a small closet. Thanks to the rush of the holidays, I didn’t get a chance to edit the photos and video until now… and I am so excited for you to see this! In case you missed my post about the closet from a few years ago, my house didn’t have a SINGLE closet in it when I bought it. While renovating the bedroom, we used the Elfa system from The Container Store (which is 30% off currently!) to turn an entire wall into a closet for Sean and I to share. We’ve lived with the closest for about 3 years now and it’s been amazing. Ever on the quest to live with less, Sean and I worked with Claire to pull everything out, prioritize, and re-assess our storage habits! Here’s what happened:

What Does ‘Small Space Living’ Mean?

What Exactly Does 'Small Space Living' Mean? An open discussion on downsizing, living intentionally, the sustainable aspects of downsizing and living small. Weigh in with your opinion on #smallspaces #livingroom #smalllivingroom #tinyhouse #smallspaceliving

Here on the blog, I have shared tons of small space tips, home tours, and inspiration for choosing to live small. Each time I post something, I am asked what my definition of ‘small space living’ actually is… especially after I received pushback for featuring homes measuring over 1000 sqft for my Small Space Squad series. Every time I am asked, I struggle to share a truly defined description. I thought it was time to kick off the conversation around this topic and share the results of an Instagram poll I conducted this week. Let’s open up the dialog and see if we can find a definition that works for all of us! Grab your coffee and maybe a snack cuz this is a long one…
