While we may admire the spacious rooms in large homes we see in magazines or on TV, let's face it: most of us don't live in rambling estates. Instead, we live in homes, apartments, or condos with small rooms and even smaller closets. But you can enjoy an organized, beauty-filled life no matter what the size of your space. In this practical book, readers will learn how to

-perform a room-by-room audit of their space to see if it's functioning at its best

-make the most of existing storage space and find clever ways to add more

-find creative ways to arrange furnishings and accessories that maximize space and bring harmony and style to the home

Whether empty nesters who are downsizing, newlyweds who are setting up their first nest, or anyone who needs creative new ideas, readers will love these strategies, tips, and solutions to maximize their space and enhance their quality of life.

    Whether you're downsizing after the kids have moved out, or trying to make more room into your current home as your family grows, many of us are familiar with the feeling that we just don't have enough space for everything!

    I found this book mostly discussed how to make the most of your space for those living in tiny homes; studio apartments, 1 bedroom condos, etc. Nevertheless, this book would be useful to anyone who is just looking for ideas on how to make better use of the space they have, no matter what size of home they live in.

    Kathryn goes room by room in several different housing types, discussing how to use your space more wisely, how to decorate in practical, multi-functional ways, and how to make small spaces appear bigger. She includes green tips throughout the book, as well as advice on how to save money on furniture and decorating. She even gives advice on how to entertain in small spaces! I also love how Kathryn discusses how you can manage your life without so much extra "stuff!"

    At the end of each chapter, Kathryn shares many resources relevant to the chapter to help readers find products that will help them manage their space more efficiently. There is also room at the end of each chapter to write your own notes.

    While at first this book may not seem relevant to your living situation if you don't live in a tiny home, you can still find this book useful for learning how to better manage your space.

    Full Disclosure: I received this book for free from Revell Publishing, a division of Baker Publishing Group, for review. I was not obligated to write a positive review.

    Just about all houses could use a little better organization and efficiency. In Small Space Organizing, Kathryn Bechen shows the reader how to examine a room's level of function, to creatively arrange areas to be both efficient and inviting, and to optimize each space, no matter how small.

    Small Space Organizing by Kathryn Bechen is a great resource for those of us that need a little extra help in getting/staying organized. One of my favorite things was that as the author went through each room she had long lists of specific ideas for organizing common items in each room. Then at the end of each chapter there was a place for thoughts, notes and ideas. I found the book very helpful, although I did not have time prior to writing this review to actually try out all of the ideas I want to implement. This book is also convenient to use. After you read the first few chapters, you can skip around in the book according to whatever area of your house that you are focusing on at that time. I highly recommend this book as I definitely see myself referring back to it time and time again.

    This book makes sense. It's one of the best organizing books I've read. If you're living in a small place, being organized is important.

    This lady has lived a great deal of her life in small spaces and has discovered many ways to make it work. You'll find lots of very clever ideas to make your small home a very pleasant place.

    I've learned from experience that a person needs to get rid of all the clutter. It just can't be organized. Then with Ms Bechen's guidance, you can work to create a beautifully organized small home.

    After cleaning out my grandparents' households, then moving my parents and inlaws, I knew I wanted to leave less behind. This book has fantastic tips and spaces for notes, as well as a treasure trove of resources.

    I live in a big farmhouse now, but it was built in the 1850s—back when you hung your clothes on hooks and kept your couple of pots and crockery on a shelf in the summer kitchen and wouldn't dream of having a privy in the house! Subsequent remodeling has given me four closets, two bathrooms, electricity and indoor plumbing. The kitchen is still the middle of the house with at least one door on every side, so the cupboards are minimal. I could have used this book when I moved in, even to this bigger home.

    Bechen takes you on a trip around your house. Using examples from her life of moving, as well as years of experience, study, savvy and common sense, she helps the newly independent, the recently down-sized, the mobile modern family think about lifestyle in practical means that also take into account family mementoes.

    She goes room by room to teach us to make the most of the tiniest living areas, and creating separate areas in a one-room apartment. Have no foyer, but always dreamed of one? Bechen shows you how to do it? Miniature bathroom? Bechen gives you hints about creating a spa experience no matter the size. Using small pieces of furniture creatively, nightstands, small dressers and multi-purpose pieces are favorites, the author uses space in clever ways for storage and décor that won't seem crowded. I appreciated the area at the end of chapters to make notes to meet my needs, as well as resources to find the materials she discusses. Using clever rhyming alliterative headings, Behen makes even downsizing from a lifetime of memories seem doable.

    My only quandary is that I'm short, and so uncomfortable thinking about using space vertically. Stepping stools take care of this, I know, but for aging or unsteady folks, that's not always practical. Otherwise, Small Space Organizing is a fantastic tool for those on the go or thinking of downsizing which I'll be happy to recommend.
