Love Everything—Even Your Sponge
The key to living large in a small space is to love everything you own—and I mean everything—even your sponge. Finding ways to make everything, even the unlovable things like sponges, beautiful and functional will help you find joy in your space.
There are plenty of annoyances living in a small space. Lack of privacy, tripping over each other, having no room for a suitcase when you need to pack...the list is certainly long. Something I found incredibly useful for learning to love your small space is to love everything in it, even the crappy stuff like cleaning supplies and the junk drawer.
Most people spend money and effort on the things that guests will see, but then skimp on the things that are for their eyes only. For example, they have a lovely dining table, but their vacuum is a POS. When your space is small, you can't hide things in the closet so there is no such thing as "for guests to see" and "guests not to see".
By investing time and money into the “ugly parts” of your home, you will find delight everywhere you turn. Even when you are washing dishes or cleaning the bathroom. So go ahead and splurge on your sponge and buy beautiful containers for your junk drawer. That way, instead of dreading chore, you’ll look forward to it! Read on to find my favorite items for making every corner of my home something to love.
