I have been fortunate enough to work from home for the past two years. I currently work as an apartment manager for my apartment complex. While I love my job, and no matter how much insane shit I deal with every day, I would never trade it for the world. That being said, there are times when it sucks to be an apartment manager…

Our kitchen is teensy. I can pretty much touch both walls ay once, in both directions. I love to cook and bake, so it was important to me that even though the kitchen was small, it worked well and held everything I need at arm's reach without chaos in every cupboard.
We're renters, so while I could write a million posts about things I'd do in this kitchen if I owned it (pot rack, wall mounted lid racks, more sensibly proportion cabinets, extra shelving… etc), here are some ideas that anyone can do — whether you own your house or not.
My husband and I are about to apply for an apartment. It's almost perfect! Except for the interstate being a stone's throw from the balcony. Are there any non-damaging but permanent ways to help keep our apartment relatively quiet and calm?
y fiance and I are going to be moving soon, and have started apartment hunting. We have a definite budget for rent, so that means we're looking at cheaper complexes.
We have found several places that we can afford, and everything seems decent enough, but the online reviews for these places are all very disappointing.
I'm wondering how seriously I should take these reviews — can I trust apartment review sites?
Just because you live in a small apartment in Cologne, Germany, doesn't mean it has to feel cramped. Jasna's apartment is all about crafts, colors, feminine decor, and a spotted fridge. And somehow, it doesn't seem cramped at all! Oh, and wait until you see how she uses clothing as decor.
