Thanksgiving in a Small Space? No Problem!


Just because you live in a small space doesn't mean your Thanksgiving can't be a big success. All it takes is clever planning and organizing.

Lucky for you, the experts at AOL Real Estate have dozens of tips for making the most of small apartments or houses, from creative ways to expand your workspace to the kitchen-organizing strategies of a professional chef -- who just happens to live in a rental.

Of course, even homeowners with big kitchens have room for improvement, especially if they're thinking about selling the house anytime soon. Kitchen upgrades consistently pay back more of the investment than just about any other home improvement project. And it doesn't take a gut reno to reap those benefits. In fact, cosmetic upgrades give you the biggest bang for your buck, returning about 80 percent of the cost.

So before investing in anything more expensive than a Butterball this holiday season, check out these ways to make a tiny kitchen big -- and a big kitchen better.
