Small Space Organizing Ideas

With three little kids in one tiny bedroom in an even tinier home - at just 500 square feet - this family needed a few more tricks to get organized and make use of wasted space.

    What would we do without bunk beds?I 'm getting a trundle for my boys' bunkbed, to make a guest bed for them.

    double rod the closet, add a very low but wide plastic pull out drawer at the bottom of the closet for shoes so you can utilize the full floor of the closet. take closet doors down and add a spring tension rod and get cheap sheets from walmart to make the closet closure. add a shoe bag to back of door for shoes or other needed items. get rid of dressers and add the 9 cube closet maid for clothes. the cube is not as deep and you have more floor space and you can add as many as needed and can be used for clothes and toys. add a shelf around the top 1 foot of ceiling for less frequent used items and get baskets from the dollar tree in put the items in, hint for kids they have to ask for those toys and game and your room will stay neater cause they have to trade out toy for toy on that high shelf.
