small space storage solution: raskog kitchen cart from ikea

Keeping a small space organized can sometimes be a difficult task. I’m definitely guilty of having too many items and not enough places to put them. So, I’m always on the hunt for stylish storage solutions to help keep me organized without blowing my budget or taking up too much of the little space I have.

While searching online for creative space saving ideas, I came across the RASKOG kitchen cart from IKEA. With an endless list of uses, this little cart has taken the blogosphere by storm. Thanks to its simple design, large storage compartments and colours (my favourite is the turquoise), I have fallen victim to its charm.

editor’s pick: cat beds

Meet Tootsie. She is my Scottish fold kitten, who is of the Lol Cats persuasion that “if it fits i sits,” as evidenced by her perch in my stock pot. (Cat soup, anyone?) I’m forever finding her in strange places, such as shoes, drawers, the fridge, etc. Adorable as she may look in these – ahem – resourceful spots, I think the time has come to get Tootsie her very own place, so I’ve been scouring the net for cat beds. Check out a few of my favourite finds so far.
