Small Space Organizing book review

Small Space Organizing
A room by room guide to maximize your space

Kathryn Bechen

Having lived in 13 small home spaces in the last 30 years, Kathryn Bechen shares her knack for organizing and enjoying smaller dwellings by finding the joy and beauty in its smallness.
Attitude is everything in realizing the blessing of living in a smaller space. She begins her book for those downsizing and taking a look at their possessions that may also need to be downsized. Recommending that people weed out things before the move to help with the transition.
She gives detailed ideas for small studio apt style living with just one main room. Ways to organize paperwork, to utilizing the one room for all of the various needs it serves, hobbies, living, dining and sleeping.
She then goes on to each area of the house bit by bit suggesting ideas for organizing and beautifying the space. She gives websites to view for ideas in purchasing different organizers, and beautification tools. Loved how she included an area for hobbies into the small living.
Great tool for getting organized in small spaces. More though for the idea of making the space you do have, work for you. Ideas that work for if you live in a small space or larger space to cut down on clutter and to create a beautiful home.
