It is so super easy to accidentally collected an endless amount of stuff in your home, that you really are never using. I have therefore made a list of 22 things, which you most likely have in your home that you should get rid of right now. In other words, the complete list needed to declutter your home.
First thing first, you need to get rid of all the different kinds of paper trash that are clotting up your valuable storage space. This includes:
Old bills, brochures, tickets (bus, plane or cinema), etc.
Old news papers. It’s not like the news will still be news tomorrow. Old gossip magazines also needs to be thrown out.
Old school stuff. Such as notes or books from subjects you have already finished. Also old assignments.
Calendars. Outdated calendars. It’s not like you’re gonna use them again.
Anything with holes in. Of course jeans and such might sometimes be purposely ripped already from the store, BUT, holes in socks and underwear are NOT a fashionstatement, so get rid of them!
Moving on from the closet, it’s time to look into those entertainment times, which are either outdated or unused.
This is probably the most important category on this list, not because self care items actually take up that much space, but because expired medicine, makeup etc. can actually be sorta dangerous to use.
Expired cremes and makeup. This also includes dried nail polish.
Baby size toiletries. Personally, I always have tons of these laying around, thinking that they’ll come in handy at some point, yet when I finally am going traveling and have use for them, they are expired.
Hair ties that are no longer elastics.
Last, but not least, we have the pretty long list of things most people have laying around their home, which are all super easy and painfree to get rid off. Most of these things also take up a lot of space, so why not use that storage space for something more pratical?
Decorative things which have seen better days. This could for example be dried flowers, used candles, etc.
Chipped china. Mugs, glass, plates, get rid of those chipped items, and while your in the kitchen you might as well throw out any broken kitchen tools.
Worn out towels and bedsheets. This goes for anything with holes, or anything that are so warned and washed-out that it have become miss-coloured.
Anything rusty. This mostly goes for cutlery, treys and candleholders.
Pencilcase items that no longer works. This includes pens, makers, glue sticks etc.
