To reclaim your dining room from papers and bills, "you need to figure out the logjams that are creating clutter and handle those with portable solutions," professional organizer Lorie Marrero says. For example, if you pay bills at the table, get a rolling cart; if the surface doubles as a work desk, get a caddy for your office supplies. That way, come dinnertime, you can move your mess out of sight. For a cheap remodel, a fresh coat of paint on the walls (or floor!) can work wonders, or switch out tablecloths, rugs, or other accent pieces for a five-minute update. Quick tip: Before you buy any big furniture, measure and outline its dimensions in painter’s tape to make sure it won’t disrupt the flow of the space. Ready to get started?
