27 space-saving organisation hacks and ideas for your HDB flat

Is your home cluttered with items all over the place? And with all that furniture and items, do you feel like you have no space left at home? Many of us find it difficult to maximise space with so little space to begin with. We totally get it, so here are some space-saving storage ideas that could help with organisation and space management:

Kitchen

1. Hang your pot covers

I’m sure many of you think it is important to get a huge dining table to cater to those times when your friends and families come over for a meal.
