Emily and her fiancée share a 1000 square foot apartment–with their four year old! Since the pair plan on having more children AND staying in their current digs, they had to get more than a little creative with their closets and storage space.
Says Emily, “We share a bedroom with our son and every closet is PACKED. Needing even more space for a little-one-to-come I had made a mini-closet for the nugget using a wide-ledged window sill.”
Her solution? Using two closet organizers ($20!) as shelves and suspending them with an expandable shower curtain rod ($7!). The rod is spring loaded, and can be adjusted to fit whatever width is required. Emily can stow away just about everything–her breast pump, bottles, blankets, and clothing for up to six months of time.
The best part? Since the organizers were set up by a window, they use the curtains to cover the shelves as if it’s a closet. GENIUS!
