Step 1: Decide what your sense of style is…

Or maybe even contemporary?

Once you have decided, find everything that does not fit that aesthetic, decide if you must keep it, if not, set it aside for donation; this is the best place to start.  Then…

Step 2:  Set limitations to the amount of furniture that you have in a room. 

For example, if you have 1,000 books it does not mean that you should go out and buy enough shelves to house all of the books.  Instead, find ones that you think will look pleasing in the space and decide which books you mest keep.

Here are a few of our favorite bookshelves (in case you were wondering).

Step 3:  Find a plae to donate that inspires you.

Nothing is truly more rewarding than giving to a cause that you are passionate about.  Whether it is donating books to a local school or clothes to a women’s shelter, find  something that makes you want to give.  After all, there is no better reason to get rid of things that you do not use when you realize that they are going to someone who will appreciate them beyond comparison.
