After changing the old, deep TV console and computer stand to this new one with drawers, we could fit all the CDs and board games. Making the storage space more accessible means we could keep more things inside. Simple as that.

We couldn't fit standard files and A4 storage containers in this bookshelf, because it just isn't deep enough. So A4 papers (bottom right) have to have their broadest side facing front, as in the picture. Not great for visibility. Moral of the story? Plan and measure thrice before heading to the store.

Shelves at the bottom are hard to reach, especially for those with well-developed bellies, and quickly become black holes. Get hanging rods from a neighborhood store, and drawers from our beloved Muji. It'll cost way less than a wardrobe overhaul.

And viola, you have a standing desk, that comes with storage underneath, And an awesome view! A perfect set-up for those who work at home. Get some high chairs and turn it into a breakfast corner, or to sit on when your legs get tired. Better than working at Starbucks!!

But it becomes magically empty in the "after". We don't have Tinkerbell on staff - just some elves who plan which categories of items go into each little storage space. Try that - it'll make your space feel more organized instantly.
