Six simple and cheap tidying tips
What should I do if the room is too small and has too many things and not enough space? This is very common distress of living in a small apartment in Japan. The following describes how people in Japan can use some simple and cheap cleaning methods to make the seven living places at home more comfortable and more livable.
#1 Hang up! Make the most of vertical space
You can use wall hooks and hanging tools to hang things up and use space vertically to save valuable space in the kitchen, bathroom or laundry area.
#2 Storage space under the sink
The use of high-pressure telescopic rods and plastic storage boxes can make full use of the space under the washbasin! No need to worry about not being able to hook the cleaning supplies inside the cabinet, just pull out the storage box!
#3 garbage sorting
Garbage classification in Japan is a bit complicated, and the date of garbage disposal varies according to the type. You can set up a trash can for different types of trash to make yourself easier. For example, Wednesday is the aluminum cans and paper recycling day, so just pick up the aluminum cans and paper trash cans that day. You can immediately throw out the garbage.
#4 Organize cables
Unorganized wires are not only difficult to find the correct wires when used, but also make the room feel messy and even tripped.
#5 Organize clothes and sort them by color
Many apartments don’t have much closet space. After you have moved in for a while, the wardrobe may burst at any time, and there may be clothes everywhere on the bed or on the floor.
#6 organize shoes
A typical apartment may not have enough space to store shoes, and the entrance can easily become a little messy.
