We're three weeks into Small Cool 2011, and I am so amazed at how people utilize their small spaces. None of them have been quite this small, though. At 90 square feet, Felice Cohen has the tiniest apartment I've ever seen!

Cohen, a writer and professional organizer, wanted to live in Manhattan but didn't want the overhead of the $3,000+ rents in her neighborhood. She pays $700 for a microstudio smaller than her childhood bedroom closet.

How does she do it? There's no kitchen apart from a minifridge and a hotplate (New Yorkers just keep their sweaters in the stove anyway). Her loft bed leaves her 23 inches from the ceiling, and all of her belongings are in boxes and bins stacked on shelving above her desk.

Check out the full video here, and watch here for Felice's organizing tips.
