Furniture Arrangement Tips

 Since moving to my condo I am constantly rearranging my furniture to maximize space and flow of the tiny space. In an ideal world I would get rid of most of the furniture I currently own and buy pieces that are more suited for the 500sq studio. I want to take my time decorating and so in the interim I plan to do the best with what I currently own. It can get frustrating trying to figure out what goes where and what arrangement would work best for now. I have spent countless hours moving items around without really thinking about it. So glad to have found this article on Houzz offering really good tips on how to get furniture arrangement right to steer me in the right direction…Thought I would share it with those of you in the same boat.

Pack Breakables With Plastic Food Wrap

As some of you may know I moved into my own condo last year. While packing my dishes and glassware, I ran out of packing tape. Since it was nearly 2AM and no store near me was open. I wanted to continue packing so I started scavenging through drawers, closets and kitchen cabinets in hopes to find a roll of pacing tape. I was about to give up when noticed the 8 rolls of plastic food wrap that I bought a while back from costco but had hardly ever used.

Staring at the rolls I had an “idea!” moment where I thought of using plastic wrap instead of tape to pack. It not only worked great, but made me wonder why I hadn’t been doing this all along. In a few hours I had wrapped breakables like plates, glasses, vases, candlesticks, spices, and even used it to protect clothes that had beads and sequin in shrink-wrap-style. It even made items fit in boxes better and I ended up saving tons of money.

Plastic Wrap for packing

Here are a few pics to illustrate how you can use plastic wrap to pack for a move.

Have you stretched plastic wrap beyond the kitchen for similar uses? Would love to know!

Happy 2015

Happy new year! I took most of 2014 off from blogging to heal and take care of myself and feel revived from having done so.  I have missed being here and look forward to catching up with those of you who still visit from time time, those who have patiently waited to hear back from me, and the many many of you that continued to support me. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

Hello

I have lots to share with you!

Here’s to a great 2015 together. xoxo
