Do you find that you have little bits and things lying around that you don’t really use anymore? Maybe you should think about throwing it out and creating space in your home! Here are 20 things you probably have and should consider throwing out!
1. Food storage containers
Did you buy a set of food storage containers that you thought you were going to use, but realised that only two out of five were actually useful? Donate the other three and buy more of the useful containers to save valuable cupboard space.
2. Old clothing
If you have old clothing that no longer fits, donate it! All you are doing is wasting space in your wardrobe, do a full cleanup and your wardrobe will be looking amazing in no time!
3. Miss-matched socks
If you have lots of miss matched socks and just can’t find the other one, throw it away, or donate them!
4. Old sunscreen
Sunscreen really doesn’t last the test of time, toss last summers away and buy a new one.
5. Old random cords
We all have a storage container filled with random cords that we never use. Toss these away.
6. Old makeup
You aren’t going to slather 4 year old makeup on your face, so chuck this away to create room in your make up compartment.
7. Uncomfortable shoes
You never wear them anymore, so give them away!
8. Shoes that you don’t wear anymore
You don’t wear them, but someone else might.
9. Old cell phones
They are old, new ones are pretty cheap now anyway!
10. Broken sunglasses
You said you were going to buy a repair kit three years ago, you aren’t going to fix them.
11. Magazines you haven’t read in over six months
If it has something that you really like in it, take a photo on your phone of the page.
12. Plastic silverware
Plastic silverware is good for a picnic. If you don’t go on picnics that much, chuck these out.
13. Unused remote controls
Why do you have your remote control from two TV’s ago? Chuck these away!
14. Containers that don’t close properly
If they don’t close properly, they are broken, chuck them out!
15. Old beauty products
You have 4 hair dryers but only use one, chuck or donate the rest.
16. Expired medicine
Not only are these taking up space, but they are potentially very dangerous, throw these away safely immediately.
17. Old electronics
Sure you loved your Sega megadrive when you were a kid, but you aren’t using it anymore. Give old outdated electronics to you kids or other young children who would enjoy them.
18. User manuals
Unless you still actively use the equipment, or even have it at all, throw these away! Most manuals are available online anyway.
19. Old paint
Paint takes up a lot of space. Try downsizing by keeping a small amount in mason jars just for touch ups.
20. Old projects
You were going to make that handcrafted cabinet, but you never did. Chuck these old projects away to get rid of your guilt and save some space!
