What is one thing you would keep even in a small space?

We all have those certain items that just make our day better. The particulars vary from person to person, but we all have them. Moving into a tiny space those certain items become even more identifiable. When you are wiling to rearrange everything just to make it fit, you know you really like having a particular thing around. Such is the case with my not so tiny Cuisinart Keurig coffee maker. I bought it a few months before deciding to move into a tin can. Granted, I did already live in a very small studio apartment, but it could boast about more countertop space than the tin can has. Prior to the actual movie in I planned that the coffee maker would fit on the upper kitchen shelf next to the microwave and toaster oven. Hahaha! What I forgot to consider is the need to open the top of the coffee pot. Uh…hello ceiling. On to plan B…which involved rearranging the furniture in the entire front end of the tin can to create a home for the coffee maker. Although its home still isn’t ideal, it does work fairly well. Eventually I may figure something else out, but this cold winter I have been so happy to have my on demand coffee and tea.

The unit works awesome for either and is one of the best appliances I have ever bought. Yes, I could save the space and use my french press, but honestly when do I have the time to actually enjoy doing that? Listen, I know me, and doing that would become a chore. I would end up at Starbucks. Haha! Thus, money saved on a regular basis, a hot cup of coffee in hand on my way out in the morning, and hot tea to warm and relax with on these cold winter evenings. Pure joy my friends! Yes the coffee maker stays…

I’d love to hear how other people have simplified while still keeping certain things they enjoy. I think it is part of the process that makes it so rewarding. Less clutter and more focus on the simple things we really enjoy. So, what would you keep if you move into a tiny space? or what did you keep when you made the move?
