The Tetris of Tiny Living
I think we all know it takes a special person to live tiny. One must have fewer things and be better at organizing. Luckily for me, I have OCD with organizing. In a tiny home, I call it "Tetris Tiny Living". By this, I mean finding a home for each item or a way to have your things in your home involves the classic Tetris or puzzle piece mentality.
Take our bathroom storage for example. The first picture is what it looked like originally, not terrible but a much better way of organizing it.
The picture below is with the Tetris of tiny living touch. We bought a $6 dollar shelf for the shoes and rearrange the two sections and voilà. Tiny organized again. We moved our towels down to the bigger section to make more space for the shoes up top. The suitcase stores my traveling work clothes. Also making use of the empty space on the wall for the camera tripod.
Now apply this to everything in your home. There has to be a rhyme or reason how you organize, to the extreme. Living in a tiny home there are always going to be small adjustments whether it's cutting your shower curtain so it actually fits in your space or cutting your tub mat to fit in your tiny tub. Making sure your house is always leveled because of the ground shifts. It's all part of the game.
I actually find it much more fun than I think most people would. Everything has a home. When I have some downtime at the end of the day I like to see what else can be changed around to make the space more friendly. What makes more sense. It's a game to me in a weird way. Space can always be better utilized. It's always adjustable. Since you have fewer things you know exactly where everything is. It's one of the things I love about living tiny. It kind of embraces my OCD rather than seem just a weird way of doing things.
