The nightstand tends to be one area that easily accumulates clutter. A simple way that I keep the clutter at bay is to display only a few significant items:
- Alarm Clock/Media Player
- Cell phone and holder
- Flowers in a vase
- A photo of my significant other
I find that by limiting the amount of items that I put on top of my nightstand, the less likely it is to get cluttered. Simplicity tends to attract simplicity while clutter often attracts more clutter.
