If you can clutter a small closet you can clutter any size home LOL

Get stuff off the floor! It's so tempting to have pretty baskets with "stuff" in them as decorative furniture almost. It's amazing how you will feel not having anything stored on the floor. I love baskets and now use them on shelves or in closets - I still get to see them so it makes me happy. I completely agree with cleaning off the kitchen counters. When we moved into our new home last year that was one of my mantras and got my husband's buy in as well. Such a nice feeling! We also went with a large ottoman instead of a coffee table, it took some getting used to but love not having to constantly clean up stuff that accumulates on a coffee table. These are things that work for me.
