Space on a boat is at a premium, ask anyone. So utilizing what space is available, especially when you'll be living on the boat full time, is not just a matter of practicality but sanity. We now have almost all our clothes on the boat, the v-berth shelves are chocked full and we've both got stacks of more that need a place to go. And it's not just clothes that need space; bathroom gear, towels and random items also need space too.
We've had to start thinking about space a little differently, in particular, looking at vertical spaces and which ones we could take over. In order to accommodate our stuff we decided to add some shelves to a couple of our tall (and rather unusable) lockers.

With just a few shelves we went from almost being swallowed up in our boat to it starting to feel like home. It's amazing what a little organization can do to my mood!
