It’s easy to go overboard when decorating your home with so many cute items available everywhere. Whether it’s your kitchen, bathroom, living room or bedroom, we’re sure you have your favorite decorations that really just end up collecting dust. What can you do to have less clutter in your home and life? Start with these 7 ideas.

Cute Kitchen Accessories

We agree that your mugs, juice glasses and teapots are cute and functional, but do you really need a ton of them? When you have too many of these items, you usually end up using only a few and the rest just create the mess.

Couch Pillows

Too many pillows on your couch will not make you feel cozier, but rather create clutter and annoy you. Two should be enough.

Old Mementos

You don’t have an obligation to save everything. Go through your memories and get rid of everything that’s not precious or has a great emotional value.

Too Many Floating Shelves

Floating shelves seem practical at first, but if you end up hanging too many of them you’ll just use them to “organize” things you don’t actually need and can get rid of.

Happy Taco Tuesday! Actually we ate Mexican today but I didn't make it. We had to order in because I'm so busy making product for an upcoming "Sip and Shop" I have this Saturday. What can be better than have a glass of wine or prosecco as you shop? 🙌🏻🍷🍾 Perfect combo if you ask me! 🙈 And if you are one of those impulsive shoppers when you have few glasses then you might even end up with a cookie jar (as I did last week! 😂). Yup! I realized later on when my husband got the notification from EBay to his email. 😂😂😘 He is such a good sport that he said I deserved it! 😇😂 Hope your day has been a great one! . . The Happy Fall y'all sign was a gift from my sweet friend Tracy @oursignatureswag and it just fits perfectly on my shelves. . . *TAG PICTURE FOR SOURCES* #raedunn #raedunnclay #floatingshelves #kitchenshelves #kitchendecor #interior4inspo #interiordesign #farmhousedecor #farmhousesigns #farmhousestyle #copper #pumpkinspice #pumpkinspicedecor #pumpkineverything #fallintoautumn #falldecorating #falldecor #cookiejar #pier1love #pier1imports #stylingsigns #weekdaywithrae #raedunnobsessed #raedunnfinds #sundayshelfie #vintagefinds #doitforthehomegram

Decorative Table Trays

One or two of those put at the right places in your home can help you quickly organize your keys, mail, and other misc you otherwise just put anywhere. But have too many and you’ll lose focus.

Stacked Books

Is it really necessary to have books on your coffee table, next to your TV, and a couple on a nightstand? Keep your books neatly arranged on a bookshelf and your life will be easier.

Shadow Box Art

Some ideas sound great at first but fail when you actually go through with them. If you like framing cute mementos and showcasing them in your home, look closely if they are responsible for the clutter. You may want to put some away.
