Eliminate instead of organizing!

The best way to make your space more enjoyable is to simplify!  No one likes cleaning; to make your rooms more spacious get rid of the things you are no longer using… how many throw pillows do you really need?  If you find yourself constantly moving or picking them up off the floor they may no longer be needed.  Looking for a place to donate your unneeded belongings check out our list: What should we do with all our stuff!?
