1. Plastic chairs decorating your terrace or garden. They may be economical and practical, but honestly they do not give a good impression of design.

Save for a while and purchase some sturdy wooden chairs for your outdoors.

​2. High school diplomas and certificates still decorating your walls?

It may be best to file them for safe keeping instead.
