Post Christmas is a great time to sort out anything that no longer has a place in your home, giving you more space to neatly house any new gifts received.

Donating items to charity will create room in your home while helping someone else out! Donate clothes and shoes, books or DVDs — anything that doesn't fit into your life anymore. There are even charities specifically set up to accept furniture donations, often with locations where you can drop off your items, or you can sometimes schedule a pickup.

Thanks to their small size and stackable nature, you may also use them to arrange items of clothing in the bottom of a wardrobe, to maximise your storage space.
