Needless to say, that's a lot of stuff to store in my little 1100 square foot two bedroom condo. I mean, my house (it's actually my mom's condo that I rent from her) is totally the perfect 'big' size for me and my teenage daughter...I'm gonna miss it when we move in with Mr Fix It. And me being me, I have storage places all over for sure.
But what was I supposed to do with these:
And then there's these:
Well, the boxes (votive candles & holders & picture frames) in the pic above are consuming space on my garage floor. And then there's the few boxes in the very first picture that are sitting on the stairs leading up to the third floor (my daughter's room) out of guest's sight. But the rest of those beauties? The ones stacked pretty high? Well, thankfully, we have a special little hidden storage space in the back of my daughter's closet. Check it:
It's where the water heater sits, but they left a ton of extra space in it that I have been blessed to be able to use to store all things wedding for almost a year now! And that pretty little flip flop basket I blogged about yesterday? It now sits on the empty floor space you see in the front right of this picture!
But seriously...if I didn't have this space, where the heck would I be keeping all this stuff? UGH! I truly feel like our wedding has not only invaded my thoughts and time, but even my living space! Good thing I can tuck 'most' of it away and out of sight for now.
What about all of you? Have you made a bunch of early purchases that are consuming space in your life? What are you doing to cope with it?
