If I were to show you a photo of my bedroom you just might question my ability to work for Design Public. I have one of the smallest bedrooms known to man…a room we now refer to as a shoebox rather than bedroom…and in our shoebox one misplaced item creates a bona fide tornado scene. I have grand visions with how I want to change this space and organize it, give it more of a homey and less shoebox-ish feel, but I think I’ll need a week off work to make that happen. Professional organizing coach Emily Wilska (seen above in the jogging outfit, just kidding) has provided us with some fantastic ideas in our Storage and Organization Guide on how to bring much needed order to one of the most treasured spaces in a home:

    I enjoy wood paneled station wagons, German food and senior citizens (I am 80 years old at heart). Nearly every weekend I am taking photos at other people's weddings and I have a blog of my own (but I don't update it often enough). I love to paint, sew and knit.

      I feel your pain. I lived in a tiny efficiency apartment that I dubbed “The Inefficiency” because it was so small and storage was nonexistent for even basic items.

      It was only after I gleaned a lot of items from my closet, mostly clothes and – gasp – shoes! I was able to live in it without making sure that every little item in the apartment was in place.
