Let’s face it, decluttering a household can be an intimidating job. All those little piles of clothing, doohickies, and junk that has been neglected due to your busy schedule can leave you wondering where to start! If you are finding yourself overwhelmed by your cluttered home, tossing these three items is the perfect way to ease yourself into the decluttering process.
Remove the Receipts
When you have purchased a piece of clothing or electronic device that starts to fall apart after a week, there are few better feelings than knowing you’ve kept the receipt. However, what happens to all those receipts that never end up being used? Well, they sit on your coffee table, or in your junk drawer, or on your kitchen counter—forever. Chances are, most of the receipts that are around your home are probably long expired and hold no further use. Give these receipts a toss for an easy decluttering win.
Clothes You Will Never Wear Again
Everyone has at least a few clothing items buried deep in their closet that haven’t been worn in years. Take a moment to go through your wardrobe and give those old items a toss. Whether
they no longer fit, are out of style, or are dotted with holes—they aren’t doing you any good taking up precious closet space!
Old Newspapers and Magazines
You swear you were going to get around to reading the latest issue of your favorite magazine, and yet, as weeks turn to months, that magazine sits on your counter joined by other magazines still on your to-read list. If a magazine or newspaper has been sitting for a few months, it is probably worth parting ways. You can always catch up on the next issue!
