How To Organize A Small Closet On A Budget

If you are currently living in a small apartment, or are in the process of downsizing to one, figuring out a way to make everything fit can be a pretty daunting task. We totally get it, and that is why we have come up with these budget friendly solutions to help the process. These ideas will not only keep your closet organized, but will also enable you to get a bit more storage out of the space you have to work with.

Shelf Dividers - These metal shelf dividers help keep stacks of folded clothes on the shelf from turning into a big piled mess. In a small closet with limited shelf space, this can make a world of difference.

Under-shelf Baskets - In a closet there is always that bit of space under the shelves that is hard to utilize. Well, these under-shelf baskets help solve that problem. When your closet is small, making extra space can be hugely beneficial when trying to stay organized or when you just have a few extra things to fit.

Small Hooks - These hooks are very versatile. You can add them to an already existing hanging rod, on the back of your closet door, or place them on the back wall of the closet a little higher up. These hooks stick right on with a strong glue, so you don’t have to worry about drilling holes into your wall.

East Riverside Construction At An All Time High

The end of the summer marked the fastest growing quarter for new construction in Austin this year. Roughly 30% of the total number of units currently awaiting permits were added over the third quarter alone. Add that to the 8 new projects that also broke ground over the summer, and we can see that the apartment sector is growing at a tremendous speed.

East Riverside has been one of the hot-spots for this new construction, with developers following the “East Riverside Corridor Master Plan” that was set in place in early 2010. This plan is being implemented with the goal to encourage new construction in all areas, including new units, transportation, restaurants, and shopping centers.

The South Shore District has brought much of this to life already. The ground floor of the apartment building, a building that holds over 500 living units, is dedicated to new restaurants, boutiques, coffee shops, and more.  

Though East Riverside has seen a good amount of high end units break ground on the market over the last year, one property development in particular stands out from  the rest: the Lenox Boardwalk. This property is currently in development and is unique because it will offer 17 apartments at below market rates for low income families. This is the first of its kind among newly constructed apartment buildings in the area.
