S4 E3 - Dear Angie - Storage Space Desperation
This was a message I received from a reader that stated that she desperately needed my help with her garage. I sent her back a message offering up my Cozy Minimalist in Your Pocket Call for $30 and then realized after that she was looking for advice. Silly Angie! So I turned this into a Dear Angie episode because I know this is a big struggle for many of us.

What happens when you have already minimized all the things in your tiny bathroom and you still can't use it? You focus on function and organizing.
