10 Simple Hacks For Freeing Up Space In Your Home

“So many stuff…so little space!”

Unfortunately, this is a common problem faced by most households of new apartments in recent years. Overtime, the average size of the HDB flat and private apartments has shrunk drastically. This is due to the need to maximise Singapore’s limited land, cater to the increasing population and changing demands of the household sizes.

In other words, modern living is really all about maximizing our limited living space  in a more creative and smart manner as much as possible. In fact in this short post, I have rounded up 10 niffy ideas to free up space around your home!
