You can even put them in yard sale and earn extra money! Reorganize.
Put those belongings that you don't use often in the harder-to-reach areas of the house, and those that you frequently use either stays where they are, or be relocated to more accessible areas.
Learn to use the space under the bed, or that space on top of a cabinet.
Do not let that blender or food processor stay on the counter top if you don't cook a lot anyway.
Get only furnishings which are designed to take the least floor area possible while still maintaining their functionality.
These usually cost no more than their traditional counterparts.
As an example, choose cabinets that have drawer guides in them.
Drawer guides allow you to stack more clothes in a single compartment without worrying about how to get them out.
