    Yup. Too much stuff, not enough space.

    I had the same issue and it turned me into super-psycho-neat-freak-lady. I’m glad we moved. Lol.

    We have more space now than at our apartment, but I think that I have a harder time keeping up with the bigger space.  The boys seem to think that just because there is more space, that means there is more space to put stuff before all the space is taken and you HAVE to put it away.  Just makes me crazy!!!

    @sexxysheddy:   I know exactly how you feel! Darling Husband had this place pretty full even before I moved in, and it seems like no matter how much stuff we sell in garage sales or give to goodwill, there is always so much stuff it is impossible to keep the house clean. It’s especially bad because I’m a student, so I have papers and my laptop and books everywhere, and he is a musician so he has guitars and amps and pedal boards everywhere! We just started looking at houses and I’m so psyched we’ll finally have space, because it’s like no matter how much I clean it still looks messy.

    Absolutely ! We live in a 2 bedroom apartment and have that problem ! Both of our stuff together in an apartment that lacks storage space… never a good idea ! hehe Its not that its messy, its just that if there is even just a couple of things out of place, it looks like a huge mess !

    If your in it for the long run, I reccomend scaling back so you can feel refreshed and not closed in!

    I find it hard because 1) we have a lot of stuff and not a lot of storage space 2) it’s easy for a little mess to look really overwhelming because of the lack of space.

    I love where we live, but it can get frustrating at times

    YESSSSSSSS oh gosh, I’m so glad I’m not in the minority. Our apt is a pig stye half the time because there is NO storage space. I swear, we need another bedroom just for our shoes alone! It’s out of control. No matter what I do, I can’t manage to keep it super tiday and crisp looking. This is a mixture of laziness/our bad habits buuuut we literally have no space lol. crap

    It’s definitely hard when there is too much stuff! I think getting rid of things might help a surprising amount

    Ugh, yes.  I feel like no matter how much I clean and organize it still looks like a mess.  We have no space for anything.
