the apartment we moved into just more than a week ago, is under two hundred and fifty square feet. and that includes the loft where we keep our bed. i’ll give you just a moment to contemplate that level of coziness.
needless to say, squeezing ourselves into an apartment roughly five times smaller than the last one we lived in has presented some challenges, so i thought i’d start a little serialized survival guide. nothing extraordinary, just a few tips for keeping sane in a tiny space. i hope you’ll indulge me.
Tip #1: Tiny pots.
every apartment needs a little something green to liven up the place. and when you live in under 250 square feet, there needs to be a definite emphasis on the little. no room for your grandmothers beautiful stoneware crock. on my day off, i made my way over to grdn on hoyt street and picked out three tiny air plants to fit inside my tiny mudpuppy pots. so far, the little beauties are getting along just fine and taking up decidedly little space. which is a good thing, because that’s all there is anyway.
