Why consider a small space rather than the big ones?
With everything becoming expensive nowadays, it is very important to become more resourceful, efficient, and practical, especially with your spending attitude. We don’t want to end up being tied up in debts just to keep with our wants over our needs. A shelter (house, studio, apartment, etc.), for example, is considered as a need for a person to survive. It’s only fair that we spend a chunk of our budget on it but it doesn’t mean we should get spaces that are beyond our budget capability. There are lots of available "small" spaces that are within our budget and can still sustain our need for shelter. We only have to be creative in maximising these spaces. Discover the gems hidden in living in small spaces.

Benefits of a Work-from-Home Setup
From a businessman’s perspective, allowing your employees to work from home might be a big risk and must be taken into full comprehension. There are lots of advantages and disadvantages to consider before taking that big leap. Some managers are afraid of the thought of having their employees work from home because the productivity might be affected, especially if they will be monitored less or if they will not be in a normal office setting. Some employees might take advantage of working remotely and might do non-work related activities while waiting for emails, instructions, etc. However, in our digital age, every businessman should be more open to modern business strategies, especially now that some businesses are being run, monitored, and managed through the internet. Working from home is a setup that can fit into the modernised world. If you are running a small business with small office space or if you want to already give up that office space, this is a perfect idea that you might want to consider. This is a win-win setup that can be beneficial for both employers and employees.
