I’ve had two showers recently and my house is a mess. Our tiny kitchen does not have enough space to hold everything we recieved! I don’t know where to put it all and I can’t stand living with boxes and junk all over the place anymore. The only resolution I see is moving to a place with a bigger kitchen someday – but that won’t happen for another 2 years at least! In the meantime, I don’t know what to do! Keeping everything stored in boxes in the basement seems like such a waste!
All the wedding crafts and supplies are taking up space too.
Anyone have any suggestions? What have all of you done?

We had room for everything I got at the shower, but I know any additional wedding gifts won’t fit. For now we’re putting everything in our second bedroom until we work out what to do with it!

Both our spare bedroom and the kitchen table are now designated Wedding Holding Areas. lol! FI isn’t too happy about it. But he’ll get over it.

I hear ya! My second bedroom is the wedding room. I’ve started working on cleaning out my master bathroom so that I can make room for FI’s stuff and any new things we get. I’m going to tackle bedroom 3 next, so we can make it into an office. I’m dreading the kitchen! LOL FI has gotten half of the garage cleaned out and organized so the cars fit in there now! That’s a nice feeling.

Our spare bedroom turned into wedding stuff. Who needs an office, right?

We live in 420 square feet — two of us and two cats.
Everything is staying at my mom’s until we move to a (hopefully bigger) two bedroom.

I think that storing stuff at your parents’ house would be the best idea. I know that’s what we’re going to do. We live in the city, and our kitchen is INFANT sized. There’s no way we could fit more stuff in here. 🙂

I kept most of the wedding stuff in the basement until a few week ago and then it moved to the bonus room upstairs. Although with gifts and everything else right now it’s creeping into other areas of the house. I’m nervous about packing it all up tonight to head out to the lake tomorrow. He’s probably going to freak out about all of my “junk”

So far we have everything in our super tiny spare bedroom.

All of our stuff is going into a moving van becasue we are moving directly to maryland after the wedding.

We dropped everything at my Grandparent’s house, they have a huge fairly empty basement, although Grandma hates clutter, she realized I have no where else to go so she’s been good about it.
