I just got a rack to hang my clothes on to dry instead of using the dryer. Yes, they will be wrinkled, but I iron my clothes anyway. I will probably always have a dryer though, because you never know when you may need something dried quickly.

My grocery store sells those country-style cinnamon brooms for decoration/scent. I put it in the bathroom and the smell lasts a few months.

Invest in a Food Saver. It will save you $.

Buy meats on sale, label and freeze them for later use.

A couple of my friends have it and I have tried it myself. For those who would otherwise too lazy to step into a gym, or go for a walk or run, or take their dog out of their backyard, this is probably a good product. It definitely doesn't compare to the real thing.
I love how people claim they are good at tennis or boxing or something and you ask them about it and they say they play it on the wii. Their technology is their real world.

They will be fine. Use pillows and throw blankets to tie the pieces of furniture together.

I buy organic as much as I can. I would say about 60% of what I buy in produce is organic. Sometimes it gets pricey and it isn't worth it, so you just have to go with what you can get.

Not sure if it is true, but I heard that mushrooms soak up a great deal of what seeps into the soil, so I always buy organic mushrooms.

Yes, get a dresser with skinny legs to replace the current one. Maybe one with some curves if you want something less linear.

I like the rug idea for the dining area.

What about placing a very large piece of artwork where the sewing machine is? Frameless with a thick mat. Instead of hanging it, you could tilt it against the wall and secure it somehow so it doesn't slide.

I added plants. My favorites are birdsnest ferns, pothos, and succulents. I love how it makes my room feel more alive and cheery.

I have also become a better housekeeper. Everything has a place, but I'm not obsessive about it. Before I go to bed, I take 10 minutes and tidy things up. It is better to wake up to a clean house than a bunch of chores to do.

Make pillows with different colors/prints on each side. You can simply flip them over if you want a change.
