Purchase a foldaway desk.

This one is a little more expensive, but it’s worth it. A foldaway desk is perfect for a small space, or for spaces that have more than one purpose. Foldaway desks are pieces of furniture that fold up when you’re not using it, meaning you have more floor space. There are some that fold down into a full desk while others are smaller—about the size of a suitcase.

The fact it’s in the closet means you have more floor space, not to mention your closet will look larger without stuff on the floor.

Buy nesting bowls and cups for the kitchen.

The kitchen can get cluttered pretty quickly, but what can you do about it? Nesting bowls. Don’t buy anything that doesn’t stack easily. For things that don’t, put it in a storage bin in the cabinet so it doesn’t spill out. For example, bowl lids can go in a storage bin, so they don’t slide all over the cabinets.
