I've come to realize that it's not a matter of how much stuff you have but how it's stored.
My husband has lived in this one bedroom house for quite some time, now there are two of us and twice the stuff. we've both gotten rid of quite a bit, but it still just didn't quite fit. Until now. between boxes and shelves i've become a believer that you can fit just about anything into quite a small space with the right finagiling... or a lot of organizing per say. With the right jars and boxes, even clutter can look beautiful.
