Start by organizing your space. The clutter can build up quickly–we know–but the sooner you organize all of your belongings there is a peace of mind you can have. You have control over your things; they don’t control you!

You can find inexpensive organization bins on Amazon, The Container Store, Target, and Bed Bath & Beyond among many others.


2. Decluttering? Yes.

Decluttering is the most cathartic experience ever. After you organize your belongings–go through them and get rid of what you don’t use or need (or like). By decluttering your belongings, you make space for new things that you love more and actually use. While decluttering, you may even find things that you used to use and love, but got lost in the mess of it all.

This may seem overwhelming–but don’t worry there is a method to the madness. The approach to the madness is called the KonMari Method, and you can read more about that here.


3. Buy A Stylish Hamper

You may be thinking: what? But really, a stylish hamper–that is not see through or plastic. It can make over your bedroom and give an elegant touch. There are many different types–wooden, canvas, metal and some others with a stylish mix of both. Now you have a new statement piece! You can find some stylish hampers on Amazon and Etsy for under $20.


4. Place An Oversized Mirror

Yes, this may sound expensive. (I’m looking at this expensive AF mirror). But hear me out–you can find cheaper alternatives on Amazon and at Target. Still a bit pricey, but an oversized mirror can open up your living space, whether placed in your living room or cleverly placed in your studio apartment. A beautiful mirror can also evolve in your living spaces.


5. Get Some Shoe Storage

A shoe organizing tool can keep your shoes organized in one place, so they’re not all over the place. There are many different types–ones that hang over your closet door or shoe racks–all of which come in many different styles and colors.

Shoe organizers are a great way to better utilize your space–rather than just throwing your shoes all over the floor. You can find shoe organizers of different types at just about any kind of home store such as Amazon, Target, and Bed Bath & Beyond.


6. Get A Tapestry

They are also the perfect way to show off some of your personal flare–whether you have an affliction for maps or you just like pretty patterns. You can find cheap tapestries of many sizes and designs on Amazon, and you can even find some at for $5 at Five Below.
