You ever clean out your junk drawer and feel like a million bucks afterward? Like you could take on the world or that you’ve accomplished nothing short of climbing Mount Everest? Okay maybe not everyone gets the same feeling I do after decluttering but I’m sure most of you know how great it feels to clean out that small part of your life.
It’s time to look around your house and identify what else is just there…..what’s taking up space and not serving any purpose. Here is a list to help get you started. These are things that you could get rid of right now (toss, donate, recycle, or sell) today!
old cleaning supplies
toys with missing parts
kids clothes that don’t fit or with holes
games and puzzles with missing pieces
shoes you no longer wear
old bags and purses
toys that aren’t played with anymore
art supplies that aren’t used anymore
chargers that don’t have a device
socks with holes
clothes you haven’t worn in over 6-12 months
dishes that have been chipped
expired items in your pantry/fridge
I hope this list helps jump start your way to being less cluttered in the new year! Don’t get overwhelmed….baby steps! It doesn’t all happen over night. Try tackling one area a day/weekend. And having a glass of wine in your hand doesn’t hurt either….
