These little tips will make your life in your apartment easier, even if they sound a little insane.  Apartment Therapy.com gives you a whopping 15 ideas, but I’ll highlight some of my favorites here.

a marker in the freezer so anytime you put something in there, you can
label it. It will save you from hunting for a marker and from wondering
what something is or even worse when you put it in there.  Everything
looks the same in Freezer bags!  Also, keep the refrigerator organized
and always put your food in the same places.  That way you’ll always
know at a glance whether you need more of something.  You can keep your
medication and vitamins in the fridge as well so you can grab and take
them when you eat your breakfast.

Snag travel-sized bottles of
your favorite toiletries and keep them in your suitcase.  That way
you’re always ready to go and those travel versions don’t crowd your
linen closet.  On the same note, keep your beach and ski stuff packed
and ready to go.

Always losing your keys?  Hang them on the back
of the front door or get a lock that has a key lock on the inside.  This
way you’ll always know where your keys are!

Keep cleaning
supplies in the bathroom and kitchen so you can take a couple of minutes
to wipe stuff down everytime you use the bathroom or kitchen, rather
than spending a long time cleaning on the weekend.  Another time saver
is to put several trashbags in the bottom of your trashcans so when you
take the trash out, you can just put a new one in its place.  If you
combine this with a dryer sheet, your trashcan will smell much better
