It’s fascinating how much furniture we acquire that comes with us every time we move. Kitchen supplies, outgrown clothing, dated furniture -- the list goes on and on. By combing through these things, you can easily eliminate the things that you no longer need or benefit from.

Go ahead and start with the outdated stuff at the back of the cupboards gathering dust -- like that deviled egg dish you got at Goodwill. If you don’t remember why you have that thing, donate it to a charity. You’ll be shocked at how clutter-free your cupboards and closets become! And don’t forget to look at your seating as well. Think about downsizing from a large sectional to a cozy loveseat and coffee table to better furnish your Indianapolis apartment.

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

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

Drawers or containers under your bed can hide off-season clothes. And don’t forget that storing rarely used stuff in a detached garage can also maximize some apartment space in Indianapolis.
