You Have to Be More Selective with Furniture
Some people may see this as a negative, but having to be selective about your furniture is actually a great way to help you hone in on the exact look you want for your space. If you only have space for one accent chair, for example, you'll want to hold out until you find the best one for your space. Likewise, it'll make you really consider what kind of pictures and other decorative accents to dot the room with. This is also a potential money-saver, and will prevent you from buying anything frivolous.
