Save Money and Space: Furniture You Don’t Really Need

Large_save_money_and_space_furniture_you_don_t_really_need

WHY DO THIS?


Just because a piece of furniture is popular doesn’t mean it needs to be in your house. By eliminating a few unnecessary items, your money will stay out of furniture superstores and in your bank account. Plus, the less furniture you have cluttering your house, the more space you’ll have to work, dance and play! Let the de-cluttering and money-saving begin!

How To:

  1. 1

    Dresser. Trust us, you don’t need this! Instead, use fabric shelves that hang from your closet bar. Your clothes will all be in one place and you’ll clear up valuable space in your bedroom. To give your closet a full audit, read: Organize Your Closet.

  2. 2

    End Tables. If your end tables are magnets for clutter, toss them. Instead, use your coffee table to hold things like magazines, books and the remote control. Then, keep it all organized by using a catch-all table tray.

  3. 3

    Chairs. We don’t suggest you throw out every single chair in your house. Then you’d have nowhere to sit! But, you probably have at least a few old chairs in your dining room or living room that almost never get used. Use this BrightNest rule: If the chair hasn’t seen a butt in the past three months, you probably don’t need it. Note: If you use extra chairs during the holidays, store them somewhere out of the way like your attic or basement when they’re not in use.

  4. 4

    TV Stand. Ditch this puppy and hang your TV on the wall. You can find kits at your local electronics store for around $30, which is much less than the cost of a new stand.

  5. 5

    Ottoman. If you don’t sit on it regularly, or it doesn’t double as storage, it’s simply taking up space! If you want to hold onto it just in case guests arrive, think about floor pillows instead.
