27. Open Storage

Sounds counter-intuitive, but it is the best advice we can give you! Hiding your clutter is a temporary solution, but you will end up acquiring more and more things in your home! Instead, if you keep your things out in the open, you tend to use your favourite items more. Then you’ll realise what you really don’t need in your home, and getting rid of them is the best way to clear your clutter.
