Yes, it seems like a no-brainer, but sometimes these things help :).
Expedit bookshelf from Ikea as room divider. I am almost positive I will be using this method to section off my office/living spaces.
I absolutely love this “memory jar” idea. Throughout the year, record special days or funny things that occurred onto slips of paper and store them in a jar. At the end of the year(or whenever you need a pick-me-up), read through them all and enjoy!
I didn’t want to lose these, and they still manage to be apartment related, or at least kitchen, anyway!
