I am a fan of simple light spaces, without to much stuff everywhere. I am trying to make as much free space around as possible. Therefore I would recommend to change some thing that you already use in everyday life. Some kind of excuse to buy new dishes for example.

So you can find either new appliances or just buy something that you wanted for long time.
