Begin with the outdated stuff tucked away in the back of the cupboards accumulating dust -- like that deviled egg tray you picked up at Goodwill. If you don’t remember why you have that thing, take it to a charity. You’ll be shocked at how clutter-free your pantry and closets become! And don’t forget to consider your furnishings as well. Think about downsizing from a cumbersome sectional to a quaint loveseat and coffee table to better fit your Carmel apartment.

By thinking vertically, implementing storage within furniture, and getting creative with your shelving options, you can make storage almost anywhere.

Magnetic knife racks take cutlery off the counter or free up a drawer. Or purchase a brightly-colored tea kettle or dutch oven that looks like an art piece on the stove as opposed to taking up cupboard storage.
