Whether you are thinking about moving to Idaho or if you are just curious about what goes on there, there are several big questions about the state that are commonly asked.

This can be pretty frustrating and can mean a more cluttered house as things start to pile up in corners and shelving starts to overflow. However, if you know what you are doing and if you have the right kind of creative energy, it is possible to turn this kind of situation around and create more space. You do not have to bite the bullet and try and buy a bigger apartment or a bigger house. This is undesirable, both because it is an expensive proposition and because you are…
