Develop a system for each room that works best for you and allows you to use the room as intended.

Begin arranging your room by choosing a location for the biggest piece of furniture. In a bedroom, this will typically be the bed. Make sure to place it flush against a wall on at least one side. Leave ample walking room around it and between it and other pieces. In larger rooms, balance it with a dresser or other medium-sized piece on the opposite wall. Use creative storage solutions, such as under bed containers, corner shelves, and furniture that doubles as storage.
Being able to come home and enjoy a peaceful evening is priceless. With a little effort and some smart purchases, you can make your home less cluttered. One of the biggest sources of clutter is electronic devices and their cords. One simple step in becoming clutter free is to hide cords in cord sleeves. Removing cords from sight greatly enhances the appearance of your room and creates a sense of cleanliness which translates to a calm feeling. Becoming a person who recognizes and deals with clutter might not develop overnight, but it will pay off!
