Save Some Space

by Jessica Sturdy on October 16, 2012

I’m a little bit nutty when it comes to organization. Admittedly, my organization level is not what it used to be now that I’m living in a very tiny space in NYC, but I try my best to keep things in their place! Cleanliness and organization are the two things that are keeping me sane in my shoe-box-sized-bedroom.

When your living quarters are tight, products that help you maximize your space are lifesavers. Now that my roommate and I are sharing a bathroom and we both happen to work in the beauty industry, there are A LOT of products in our not-so-big bathroom. We’ve managed to make it work with key space-saving products.

My fourth and final must-have for the Schick® Quattro for Women® Disposables Back-to-School Savings campaign focuses on my current can’t-live-without organizer. The simplehuman Shower Caddy!

It has hooks for our sponges and razors and I truly don’t know what we would do without the extra product space. I would probably have to downsize from my collection of multiple shampoos, deep conditioners, and body washes and that’s not something I’m willing to do! I like variety, what can I say! :)

Whether it was sharing a bathroom with multiple siblings, making it through the dorm room experience in college, or those first few apartments on your own, square footage probably wasn’t generous! How did you manage to stay organized and maximize your space? Tell me in the comments below!

Make sure you head over to the Schick® Quattro for Women® Disposables Facebook page to enter to win this space-saving Shower Caddy!

PS – I’ve got quite the giveaway for you today! One lucky winner will win all four of my must-have picks! The gorgeous BB Dakota leather-lapel blazer, the West Elm sequin pillow, the Bauble Bar statement necklace, and this Simple Human shower caddy! Enter through the widget below. :)

Your picks are always cute and on-trend, plus they all have that a special element that makes them absolute must-haves! I first fell in love with the pillow and blazer (such a perfect color combo!), and being an organization junkie myself, I obviously decided I NEED that awesome caddy. Really liking the spot for the razor! Love your blog and always look forward to checking out new (and old!) posts when I need a pick-me-up during the workday :o)

I too live in a not-so-grand apartment & find that organization is key to keeping me sane. The shower caddy it totally necessary as I now have all of my toiletries lined on the crown molding in my bathroom! The throw pillow adds that perfect touch of sparkle which, of course, I adore, the necklace is a gorgeous & easy piece for fall & that blazer is to die for. Thanks for the lovely giveaway!

First of all I have been following your giveaways on the Schick facebook-they are all amazing I was hoping to win atleast one but that didn’t happen -And now we get to chance to win all 4?! Dying! I am in love with the BB Dakota Blazer-leather+oxblood is both of my current obsessions combined. I love the Sequin Pillows they would go great with any decor at my place considering Anything shiny or sparkly is a sell for me. The necklace-statement necklaces are my favorite way to dress up any look-I have many from my awesome internship at Sequin however I don’t have any with black in them…so this would be a great addition to my collection. And the shower caddy would really come in handy when I move into my new place shortly. So basically I would love to have all of them :) I love your blog Jessica-keep it up!

Amanda October 16, 2012 at 4:38 pm

Great picks! I am just dying for the jacket, I love the oxblood color this year, plus it will look great with the necklace (maybe a post?). And the pillow?! While my boyfriend may not want it sitting in our living room it definitely will be!

I need the pillow and if I won it my boyfriend couldn’t give me a hard time about “buying something with sequins” and the bathroom caddy would free up some space in my crammed bathroom. :-)

I love your blog. You are an inspiration in fashion and life that I check your blog daily. Your giveaways are all must-haves, beginning with the gorgeous fall color blazer. The sequin pillow is such a great touch to add in any room of the house, I love anything with sequins. The necklace is stunning and I’d love to wear it to a girl’s night out. The caddy is so useful, especially to hold those extras that just don’t fit in my small bathroom.

I’m especially in love with all of these must-haves. they are simply flawless and would certainly make me feel fabulously prepared for the fall with the always classy wine blazer & jeweled necklace + things to perk up the home! eep! pick me. choose me. ;)

I just discovered your blog not too long ago and I must say I’m addicted already! I just moved to a new city. Unfortunately I had to leave lots of things behind like clothes and decorative items that I just didn’t need. I think the blazer and necklace would go perfectly with my fall wardrobe. The decorative pillow would match the new duvet set I just bought, and I just love ANYTHING by Simple Human (especially their garbage cans). :)

Jenna October 17, 2012 at 10:27 am
