#10 Your Bedroom is Not a Tropical Destination
Most people wouldn't consider stacking their large pieces of luggage in the corner of their bedroom as a monument to the vacation they are planning to take in a few months. We keep our luggage in a place that's easy to get to when we need it, but that doesn't get in the way of our daily lives. Do that for your Someday Isle items. Don't hear me saying throw away your unfinished projects, forget about making retail returns and don't bother collecting wonderful things to read. That's not what I'm saying. Do that. Do a lot of those things. Just don't store them in your bedroom if they are not giving you pleasure today.
My point. You can actually increase the usable square footage of your bedroom by treating it like a bedroom and not a storage unit.
