My wife wanted to be a bartender, and I used to be half drunk more than half the time. My wild days are over though so it mainly collects dust, or are raided by our friends.

Good luck in Japan! I have a friend living there and his apartment is tiny, but they make it work. Amazing nightlife though, I think he only uses the space to sleep, shower, shave, and store shit.

Unfortunately, I don't know how to block off this area so more than likely... it'll all have to go.

It's true, I'll admit it. My wife grew up with a stuffed animal collection so I've been weening her off since. As for too much shit in general, I still need to get rid of that second sofa, and throw a play pen in there. It's going to be really too much shit after we get our kid stuff
More than likely though, we'll give away a lot of stuff and try to have a clear and open space.

At least I have a closet and hardwood
The only additional expenses are electricity and gas so we can take as many showers in the dark as we like! Electricity wise, it's pretty much $50/month and we rarely use AC since we are used to the heat and throw on more clothing when it's cold. I never understand hardwood flooring either as when I was young my mother removed her carpet and put in hardwood flooring at home. It's easier tp clean but I hate wearing slippers so my feet get so damned cold!

Closets are probably the biggest problem in apartments, this one especially. We've got a tiny coat closet (filled), and a small storage area which is maybe 8H X 5W X 3 deep which is practically full. Does anyone have any ideas on good methods of storing in a small space? This apartment fits in some of your gaurages!
