      Wow! This page is going to be my best friend. I especially like the under sink tension bars for cleaning products and the wrapping paper solution with the closet rack. Right now I have wrapping paper crammed on top of a closet, and it always rolls off onto the floor or my head!

      Great and Ingenious Ideas! There are quite a few I will be using in a 533 square foot apartment. The complex calls the apartment "cozy;" I said, just say "small or tight!" We laughed! Thank You for these ideas! One can never have enough storage or organizational space.
