Storage issues in the bedroom

    Storage issues in the bedroom

    Sep 26, 2018

    So you just bought a place or are renting and you realize you have way too little storage for all your stuff in your bedroom, time to think again. There are so many wasted space storage spots in your bedroom that you aren't utilizing. For instance, under the bed storage. Yes this is a real thing and so many people don't utilize it? Why you ask, not quite sure but you can fit a lot under there: shoes, winter blankets, sweaters you only wear for part of the year, etc.

    Time to get crafty and pull out your tools, you can do it, I have faith in you.
