Spring is long gone, but some of you probably didn’t bother to do that famous clean-off. To be honest, not all of us have the nerves to do it. As summer is on now, you might notice that your house is full of stuff that you will probably never use. But what are they doing stuck inside your closet and on the floor? Take some action and sort things out. It’s time to throw out some things that only make our home feel crowded unnecessary. The feeling of a clutter-free life precedes some serious creativity!
Here is a list of 23 items to say goodbye to!
1. Old clothes
I know it’s hard to throw those high school jeans that remind you so much of your crush, but, are you really going to wear them? Let’s be real for a minute. They are not even trendy anymore!
2. Old makeup
Although it can be hard to toss that teeny tiny bottle of cover up that cost almost cost a day’s pay, it’s really old. Makeup gets old and needs to be replaced.
3. Old toothbrushes
You may have heard the rule – get a new toothbrush every three months. And if you’ve been sick earlier, throw it away immediately! If you think you’ll use them for cleaning the grouting then just keep one – you don’t need a stack!
4. Socks with no partner.
Here is the truth – you’re never going to find the other one. And toss those socks with holes, too! No one needs them.
5. Stinky shoes.
Those that are only taking up room at the back of your closet are the ones that need to go in the garbage.
6. Tacky nail polish.
Who needs tacky nail polish? It’s not good for anyone anyway. Time to go!
7. Old spices.
Spices and herbs do have an expiration date, although they can still be edible. But no one wants to cook with lackluster flavor.
8. Broken toys
Once a toy is broken there’s no point in keeping it around.
9. Worn out dish towels
You can pick these up from the dollar store, so you don’t need to stick with these old and smelly ones.
10. Chipped dishes
Chipped mugs and plates harbour bacteria…toss them!
11. Expired medicines
It’s a good idea to go through your medicine cabinet every once in a while and toss expired medicine and vitamins.
12. Unread books
If you are not going to read it, give it to someone who will. Your bookshelf will thank you!
13. Old paint
Paint fades after some time, so why not throw it out?
You don’t need every copy of Cosmo collecting dust. Read them, hang onto them for a couple days, and then dinate them to a waiting room.
15. Dish sponge
Sniff it then toss it!
16. Your entire junk drawer or most of it
You probably have this at home. No one needs those things, but you keep them just in case. Clean it out right away! You will feel like a new person.
17. Worn out air fresheners.
Why would you keep them if they aren’t smelling?
A whole bunch of bottles that are almost empty doesn’t serve anyone.
19. Games that are missing pieces
Get rid of these, because the game is now pointless.
20. Outdated and broken electronics
If it doesn’t work, don’t keep it at home.
21. Useless manuals
Keep the ones you really need.
22. Purses you never use
You probably have at least five that you will never use.
23. Random containers and jars
Especially if they’re empty.
