Live clutter free. Live chaos free.™
1. Expired food/spices/sauces – It’s taking up space, and you definitely won’t use it, so do yourself a favor and get rid of all that old stuff cluttering your fridge and kitchen.
2. Expired coupons – When’s the last time you rifled through your coupon file to see which ones are actually still valid? Going through it once in a while will remind you of which ones you can still use – and to get rid of the ones you didn’t.
3. Used batteries – throw ‘em out!
4. Stuff that’s broken – Let’s be real – you didn’t get around to fixing it all this time, are you really ever going to? Let it go.
5. Little knick-knacks that have no purpose – All those small bits and bobbles that lie around the house with no use or function, get rid of them. You’ll immediately notice a difference.
6. Old make-up – Throw out all that dried up or congealed make-up, it’s not doing anyone any good.
7. Old receipts – These really do have a way of piling up in our purse or on the kitchen table. If you can’t use them for a return anymore, pitch it.
8. Books you haven’t read for years – Donate them to a library and let someone else enjoy them, while you enjoy your newly acquired space!
9. Old and unworn jewelry – Again, you can give these away to any thrift store. One man’s trash is another man’s treasure.
10. Cables and cords that are of no use – We all have these lying around… If you don’t know what it’s used for, chances are you haven’t been using it.
11. Expired medicine – Take out some time to clean out your medicine cabinet and throw away all the expired pill boxes.
12. Old shoes that you never wear – If they’re in good condition but you just never wear them, give them away to charity. Otherwise, throw them away.
13. CD’s/ DVD’s – Does anyone use these anymore?
14. Unused/unwanted Christmas presents – I’m sure they were given with good intentions, and maybe from your favorite aunt, but the reality is – if you’re not using it, it’s not worth keeping it. Donate them to the thrift store and maybe they can be of use to someone.
15. Sports equipment you never use – We can get a bit excited shopping when mentally planning our workout routine and how many weights we’re planning to lift – but a lot of that stuff just ends up piling up in the cupboard. Be honest with yourself, and if you haven’t and won’t use it, give it away.
