Boy, talk about micro-managing. Brooklyn Heights couple Erin Boyle, 28, and fiancé James Casey, 30, are profiled in the New York Post about thriving in their—eek!—240-square-foot apartment. The writer and biologist, respectively, pay $1,500 a month for their uber-cozy digs, which they claim works by staying tidy and minimalist. (It probably doesn’t hurt that they’re both very pretty.)
When it comes to furniture, they try to ditch an item every time they bring in something new, the Post says. “We are constantly editing what we have here to make sure that it is working,” Boyle says. They also have a loft bed above their cooking stove: “It’s not too bad; it might be worse if we were beside the stove,” Boyle muses.
