Genius Inspiration for Organizing Your Tiny Office or Studio Space

If you're on a tight budget or don't have much room, this video will show you how to take advantage of literally every square inch you have.

Albert Einstein once said "If a cluttered desk is a sign of a cluttered mind, of what, then, is an empty desk a sign?" Einstein makes a great point and it's a quote which I'm sure you've heard before. It has always given me a lot of comfort when I see my desk buckling under the weight of the chaos upon it.

With that quote in mind, Casey Neistat seems to have taken this to another level in a studio/office space which takes advantage of being super cluttered yet also incredibly organized. In this studio tour by Marques Brownlee, Neistat's workspace is unlike most you have seen yet works perfectly for all his needs.

I have to admit that I have never watched a Neistat video or even know much about the guy. The real reason I wanted to share this particular video is because I think his approach to organization, working in a small space, and operating on a tight budget is something we can all learn from.

The video goes on to talk about creating hidden compartments in floors, labeling and organizing, and building rigs for yourself. Although I'm sure this style of space might not be everyone's cup of tea, you have to admit it's an inspirational use of such a small space. The main benefits I can see to having it set up in this way is the efficiency of making work. When you have an idea you can go straight to the kit required and start creating almost instantly. In a less organized space you waste time hunting down equipment or even worse, re-buying stuff (I have done that many times!).

Who'd have thought Neistat and Einstein would be mentioned in the same breath? I'm sure you can agree this use of space really is a work of genius.

Storage system reminds me of Mythbusters shop.

Looks great! It's the only way to go with so much stuff...

I'd love to know the total value of all the gear he has.

Me too! It's more like a shop!

He does seem to keep a lot of stuff that he doesn't need (how many working DSLR's did he have on that shelf) and could make much better use of the space if he let go of a few things.

Agreed! I guess it makes an interesting backdrop for his videos...

Yea, what about that dead drone wall? And there's that power wall to charge point and shoots that he doesn't use.

I understand the dead drone wall, he's a story teller and each of those drones tells a story. The charging wall, he even says that he's planing to breakdown soon. It's keeping all those working models of cameras when I'm sure there must be some in there that he hasn't used in ages. I would have sold them off to get the next bit of kit, but then again I don't have Casey's income.

I'd love to hear what his electricity bill is each month. Cool place tho, very quirky.

I thought the same thing!
