From the cushion covers to even small souvenirs, old bed sheets or towels as well as anything that comes in your mind that you can reuse. Clearing out your cupboards and cabinets will give you a good idea of what you have hidden inside.

Categorize your resources

Now that you know what you have handy, the next you need to do is categorize your stuff. You can make it into piles starting from what you really need and what can be thrown. If there is anything that can be fixed and reused, keep it in a separate pile.

Make something new

If you have things that can blend in together into something new, then use your creativity and do it. Another good option is placing things in a different manner. This will give your house a new look as well as make you feel good.
