Happy Easter Monday you guys,

we had a fun filled Easter weekend – a nice change to our usual days – with Easter Egg Hunt, having Easter brunch and overall some quality family time.
I also always use the time when my husband is home and can look after our daughter to organize a little corner in our home. It makes me happy and keeps me sane and the clutter to a minimum.
This weekend I organized / redecorated our Billy showcase that is in our living room. I use it to store all of our glassware and also my big candles in glass jars.
How to create the most storage space
Use your shelf from top to bottom
I got these small boxes with matching lids from Ikea and I was really sad in the beginning because I wanted to put four in one row and that didn´t work by a few cm but the upper shelf could not been any lower. Fortunately two fit on top of each other which saved me even more space. There isn´t much space left so this really is optimal.
Adjust your shelves so no space will be wasted
I changed the height of some shelves and put them as low as the top of the highest item was. This will add more space. Maybe just a little but it will pay off if you do this for every shelf.
Add extra shelves if you have the space
Another thing I did to maximize space in my showcase is adding shelves. By the space I saved I was able to add two shelves into my showcase and this really helped to store a lot more than I could before. Thankfully the billy showcase is always available at Ikea so it is not hard to get extra shelves. Maybe a thing to consider before buying a new piece of furniture.
Decorate with the things you are organizing
I took all of the beautiful glassware I own out of my kitchen cabinet and added it to my showcase. I own a ton of pretty glasses and finally wanted to “decorate” my showcase with them. The colors are all complementing each other and look great. Now that I can see what I actually have I am sure I am not going to forget the beautiful pieces so often.
I personally love a neat and organized home and I am happily sharing my tips and tricks with you guys. With the pandemic still going strong I almost organized the whole house so more content regading this theme is to come.
