Pretty much everything about getting your first apartment is amazing…except the fact that it will likely be the size of your thumb. Okay, I’m exaggerating. But unless your Eloise and moving into The Plaza Hotel, it’s not going to be fancy. At all. But what it WILL be is wonderfully imperfect. It will have its little quirks, you know, like the shower head having to stay turned a certain way, or the too thin walls between your bedroom and your neighbor’s. But these little things are what make having your own place extra special.

As someone who recently got her first apartment, I too am dealing with the quirks. For me, the biggest one has to be the fact that my bedroom has no closet. It’s pretty obvious since I am here writing this that I like to shop. So transferring my closet from home to an Ikea wardrobe similar to the one pictured above was no easy feat. But it has taught me how to make use of every.single.nook.and.cranny. So whether you’re like me and just have a wardrobe in your tiny apartment, or are lucky enough to have a closet that could double as a cupboard, click the slideshow to see 9 ways to deal with a small closet space. I never thought I’d be able to stuff all my clutter in this thing but these tips and tricks really worked.
