Two-bedroom apartment living has its benefits for our family of four with living spaces. Even though as small as the space we dwell in. Making the most of our two bedrooms isn't that bad.

Since I and my mum are the only women in the household, our family of four living accommodated us in our 'just right' living space.

Apartment Living Challenges and Solutions

Even though it is doable to live for a family of four in a small square footage of an apartment, there are challenges in apartment living.

I am not fond when there is NO parking for guests when we need it once in a while. The complex laundry is full of users when we need to load laundry and dry our clothes. And many more nuisances to a smooth need of amenities than when we have a house on our own. And sharing the amenities with other people who lived in the community too. I am not used to that.

When we try to stretch our feet on our balcony and watch the sunset we see it. But limited pleasant view for there are graffiti walls on the other side of the fence walled another apartment complex beside this one.

Another thing is when there is work done for maintenance in the apartment vicinity, it is so loud and busy. Sometimes everything including water is unavailable for the whole office hours.

Solutions for maximizing comfort are unavailable for us when living in an apartment, once in a while, because of these interruptions from normal activities in an apartment complex.

Embracing Small Space Living

Small space management is indeed in need of embracing a small living space, and we're quite adapting to it. Never did we seek to complain because it is just where we are for now in our situation.

It is also a blessing and at the same time when we think of other things, we would have invested without proper planning and ended up in so much debt just for the shelter. So we carefully need to asses the situation while in small beginnings.

Living in a studio apartment for six years while I was apart from my family, was very dreadful. I was always wary of living alone. My apartment kept being broken into and it took a while for the culprits to be evicted. I was petrified for my life. They took my car keys and also invaded my car all this happened while I was asleep.

They just let themselves in without being hesitant that it is not their property their using and terrorizing. When I am gone running errands, that is when they usually go to my apartment and break in. I know this because some of my little vlogging equipment went missing. Like the cover for my camera lens. And the big orange-reddish stone on my ring went missing.

At least now we are here and there are four of us living under one roof praying for protection together.

Creating a Small Balcony Garden Oasis

My mum has embodied the green thumb gardening. She can grow the garden without a problem. So we had our balcony (backyard) filled with vegetable plants.

First, it was the Swiss Chard seedling given by her friend. Next, it was the tomatoes and eggplant she bought from Home Depot. And next, we gradually filled our balcony with veggie plants and beautiful flowers. Even orchids!

I know my mom has worked so hard to make this balcony her own. Her love for planting and setting up this small balcony would have been the same in a real backyard if we had a house. At least for now, she had a good starting point. Her labor of love and love of plants shows in what she called the 'hanging garden' she cultivated.

Food gardening in small spaces makes you be challenged for it is in a small limited space. While satisfying household needs it is a beautiful thing to make use of little food harvests while we wait for the near future to have a garden in our backyard.
