Creating Better Spaces

I have good news and bad news. The good news is: I bought a house! I’m young to be a homeowner, but with a lot of hard work and some generosity on my family’s part, I was able to buy a property. I’m really excited to be able to save rent money while I get my career started.

But there’s bad news, too: I hate the place. I mean, I don’t totally hate it, or I wouldn’t have bought it in the first place. But I have to admit that, since I’ve moved in, the place hasn’t felt very comfortable. I think the problem might be with me. I feel like I’ve put my furniture in all of the wrong places, and like I’ve got too many toiletries cluttering up the bathroom, and things like that. Experts, can you help?

Overwhelmed by Organizing

I’m not the most organized person in the world. In fact, I’m pretty messy, and it’s starting to drive my roommates crazy. I try to keep my things in order, but when I need something I find myself digging through all of my stuff and scattering my things all around. I try to clean up after myself, but sometimes I’m in a rush. I feel like I have too many things, but I also feel like there’s nothing I can get rid of. Do the experts have any advice for someone who feels buried by his own stuff? Thanks in advance!
