How To Live Comfortably In A Tiny Apartment | Creative Home Ideas For Small Spaces

I knew that I wanted to live in the city, but I didn’t want to spend over 3k for an apartment that I might be struggling

to pay for and miss the whole reason I wanted to move in the first place. So a friend of a friend told me she had this really, really small micro-studio that was going to be available in a couple weeks; so I jumped on it, I was hyped like yes! show me! Guys, I was not prepared for what I saw; it looked like a hallway, (deadass) like a giant-sized cereal Tupperware container that was dubbed a micro-studio. I knew that honestly it was what I could afford and I started planning in my head how I could make the space more livable (tiny home ideas).

My money was pretty low already (decorating home ideas on a low budget), so I got a lot of my stuff from the dollar tree and garage sales.

Okay so I don’t have a real kitchen per se, but I do have a nifty little fridge, a toaster oven, and a hot pot. So I don’t think I will starve. (smile)

When I tell people I live close to Central Park, they immediately think that it’s in some expensive fancy building and that’s the good thing about living where I live, it’s all about the amenities and not the actual housing space. They are always surprised to see how I really live when I take them home.
