The holidays are officially here and we know that you’re itching to show off your new Spring, Texas apartment to your family and friends.
While the holidays are fun, visitors, decorations and gift giving can substantially take up space in your apartment. Before the rush starts, make sure that you have a storage plan for the next couple of months.
Here are some easy apartment hacks that can make your apartment clutter-free during the holiday season.
Maximize The Bedroom Space You Have
Your closets and the space beneath your bed is natural storage space. Use these areas as a smart space to store holiday gifts away from the visiting crowds.
After the holidays, you can even use these spaces to store holiday decorations like bulbs and artificial Christmas trees. All you need is a labeled bin or sturdy storage bag that you can have on-hand when the holidays pass. Then, when the time comes, pack your belongings and store them away for the next holiday season. Out of sight, out of mind!
Invest in a Hanging Organizer
People love to get crafty with their gift wrapping, but creativity can easily take up precious hosting space. Here’s another easy closet hack to look into! Online retailers and stores like The Container Store all offer hanging closet organizers that can be useful for storing all of your gift wrapping tools and decorations.
Take them out when you need them and ensure that your living room space doesn’t end up looking like a craft shop storage room!
Get Creative in the Kitchen
These aren’t necessarily holiday hacks, but tips that could serve you well for any time of the year. The last thing you want as a new apartment renter is a cluttered kitchen, Make sure that your cooking space is open enough for top chef maneuvering by implementing some of these storage options:
- Store your smaller tupperware bins into your larger containers and grab them when you need them!
- Don’t be afraid to use appliances like your microwave as a built in bread basket.
- Invest in a portable chef’s cart that can be used as storage as well as extra counter space for comfortable and mobile prep work!
Create a Designated Coat Check
Even when you host a smaller gathering, shoes, jackets, and purses can get in the way of your comfort. Grab a few decorative boxes and stack them up as a makeshift shelf near the entryway of your apartment. You now officially have a designated coat check location that makes keeping your apartment clean during guest visits simple!
