Edit the excess

While it's tempting to display everything you love on open shelves, too much of a good thing can be, well, just too much. Instead, think like a museum curator and rotate the things you put on display. Select a few of the items you want to show off now and carefully pack the rest away. When you're tired of looking at the current assortment of belongings, bring out the stored belongings and pack the former for another day.
