Green Decor Week: Simplify Your Space

Uncluttered room The new year is a great time to break old habits and begin new routines, but sometimes a fresh start requires a change of scenery. This week, we'll provide tips to help you redecorate your living space without harming the environment or breaking the bank.

Tip #4: Get Rid of Clutter

It’s Japanese tradition to thoroughly clean at the dawn of a new year. If you feel the urge to start 2010 afresh, it’s a good time to go through your home to rid yourself of what you don’t really need. Ways to responsibly purge include hosting a swap party, donating to Goodwill, and recycling and Freecycling when possible. Reducing clutter should help you find things you forgot you had and serve as a good reminder not to pick up unnecessary junk on the road trip that is life.
