Space bags are great. Bed risers too! Then you can store stuff away. We are living in a 2 bd room that's pretty decent sized but only has two closets, one in each room. Literally no other storage space, so I know all too well how that is.
Shelves are great and organizing bins are awesome for pantries and what not... Also don't let clutter build up! It's so easy to do with mail and kids crafts and toys, and clothes.

yeah it seems like as soon as I get it clean there is more clutter,I like the shelf idea since we have lots of nic nac things that family gave us that we have no where to put, and the space bags. Do you know how much room those damn winter jackets take up.lol Where do you get them? what do they run ya, are they hard to maintain?

They're not much, like 15 bucks for 4 big bags.. You can put tons of stuff in them. We put a bunch of my SOs army uniforms in one of them and you can put them in the closet or under a bed. They save a ton of room.. And they hold up pretty well just be careful not to rip them! They're plastic
