Many people believe that you need to fill up each room to make it cozy, but too much stuff can just end up making a space less useful.
Chances are, you could probably do well with less furniture in your house. Go through each room and ask yourself if you really need that side table or that beat-up chair. Is that credenza really necessary? Then, call your local charity and schedule a time to pick up all of your extra furniture.
