You can even hold a yard sale and use the proceeds to buy something new for your newly discovered home. Once you’re clutter free make sure to stay organized and ensure that you have enough storage to suit your needs.
If you are an avid reader, put up plenty of book shelves, for hobbyist maybe built in hidden storage could work well to keep everything in its place. For parents of young children, provide lots of boxes so that they can clear up after the end of play time.
