The challenges that come with living an apartment are unique, managing life in a small space can often times lead to clutter in every area of your home. We’re here with the good news that keeping your apartment clean and organized long term is possible, even if you don’t have a lot of extra time to stay on top of it. Below we talk about three daily habits that will help make all the difference.

  1. A Monthly Home Checklist CleanMama.net has a variety of checklists for print that you can use for every day organization, or bigger monthly cleaning jobs, like cleaning out your fridge. Print out the ones you need and check off a box daily or weekly.
  2. A Load of Laundry A Day – If you are doing laundry for more than one person, chances are you have to set half a day or full day aside to get everything wash, dried and put away. Instead of letting it pile up for the weekend, try doing a load a day or every other day.
  3. The Ten-Minutes-A-Day Rule – Take ten minutes every day to make your bed, pick up scattered papers, wash a few dishes, or clean whatever is dirty. This will prevent the mess from piling up and getting to a point where you don’t know where to begin to get everything back how it should be.

03.23 Natural Light blogpostNatural light is calming and makes a small space feel more open and inviting. Unfortunately natural light is not always in abundance if you are renting a small or older apartment unit. We are here with the good news that you can give your apartment the appearance of having more natural light than it does by using these three tricks! 



  1. Mirrors: Galeton Full Length Stand Mirror – $85.99                                                                                           This is a great way to give the illusion of more light, by adding a mirror across from or next to a window, you  can amplify the light coming in the window.
  2. Shiny Accent Pieces: Mini Crystal Chandelier – $82.99                                                                                 Hanging a crystal chandelier in your living room, adding a marble cutting board to your counter top, or a shiny  tiled back-splash in your kitchen are all ways you can add reflective decor to your apartment that will magnify  the natural light you do have.
  3. Sheer Curtains: Textured Chiffon Single Curtain – $27.99                                                                             Curtains can give you an extra level of privacy and are great for bringing the room together. By choosing sheer curtains, you can help give the light coming in a softer look that will help illuminate the room in a subtle way.
