We moved from a 1,100-square-foot house in Minneapolis to a 1,100-square-foot condo in Cambridge. The problem is that the house also had a full basement and an attic.
In particular, we had tools and hardware filling a hall closet plus more scattered through the basement. Now they mostly fit on this shelf, which I just completed organizing at great effort. There are also six tool boxes in the closet and a few other knicknacks here and there, and we did put a fair bit in the Goodwill pile (e.g., we now have three plant timers instead of six). Erin was impressed, which always makes me happy.
