One of the curses of living in a small or poorly designed space is lack of storage. You can't live without stuff, and the older you get, the more stuff you accumulate. It's a fact of life.
If your belongings have started spilling out into your living space because you don't have any place to put them, then you really need to give your closets a makeover. Hey, it isn't your fault. With any luck, some planning and a few changes will net you some prime storage real estate and help you finally get organized.
