Decluttering the House – 25 Items to get Rid of!

Spread the love

I love decluttering. Not only is it a great way to procrastinate actually CLEANING the house…When I declutter I feel in control. Ergo – I love decluttering when life feels crazy!

— Ok… it’s also a great thing to do before cleaning the house too! —

Decluttering also relives you of the responsibilities that your stuff demands of you. (really how many clothes do we want to shuffle through to find that right shirt?!)

Here is my list of 25 items to go through for a quick declutter!

What else would you add to the list? Leave your comment below!

P.S. I have nothing against the old – just the clutter 🙂

    I agree with all items except for one – the old magazines. For some reason, I like to hold on to them and not just like that.., sometimes I re-read those too. Great post.

    I really need to get rid of some old towels and bed linens! I’m pretty good at donating clothes I no longer wear but for some reason I’m still holding on to all these old towels!

    I also agree that decluttering is a great way to procrastinate actually cleaning. And hey, if you’re getting rid of old sheets, you can cut them up and use them as rags!

    I am a hoarder at heart, but despise clutter! I know how crazy that sounds, but it’s the truth. My disdain for clutter forces me to throw things away, but I agonize over what’s going and what’s staying!
