How do you organize a room?

I want to organize my room so I can re-arrange my furniture. Any tips?

Toss & give away anything you no longer use or want. Difficult, but you'll feel very good once the clutter is out of your way. You can also re-purpose an item in your new layout if you just can't let it go. (Just don't let unused, unloved things pile up & go to waste in your closet or under the bed. Someone can always use it.) Draw a simple floor plan of the room & scribble furniture & area rug placements until you create one you like, then try it. Your bed will likely take up the most area so play with that first. (A bed tucked into a corner usu. offers the most open floor space.) Whatever you plan, remember to keep windows clear & accessible as possible in case of emergency. Finally, empty the room, clean it well & put back only the things you need & really like. If you want "new" or better furniture, check out your basement & attic. Look for tables to make a desk or bedside storage. Old wall shelves, bookcases & storage baskets too. If it's OK, spray paint them if they need a fix-up. (Your friends might have some things they don't want as well. Offer to trade.)

Throw away the stuff you don't need/use/want... And then arrange and sort all the stuff left...
