100 things to throw away

I don’t know why I am obsessed with list posts recently. Probably the organised part of me tapping in like I said in the last post.

Also in the last post we saw 100 ways to organise things. But organising also involves decluttering. Just keeping a bunch of unwanted things in a drawer doesn’t count to organisation.

Removing all those clutter, extras, additions would honestly free up a lot of space in your home. So I found this statistics about clutter which would actually shock you (because it did shock me)

Geez… That’s way too much, isn’t it? And actually decluttering your house proves that we have a lot of unwanted things in our home. Let’s make more room in our home sweet home!!

    By ‘throw away’ I hope you mean recycle and repurpose! Lol this is a very extensive list!! When I did a deep clean and declutter, I ended up with three piles; keep, donate, and trash to turn into treasure. Not only was it a fun project that let my creative mind wander, after doing a little research I saved a ton of money by remaking things I planned to throw out into things I could use or give to those who would be able to use them to the fullest extent… I feel like it may be a house cleaning weekend now.. hahaha very creative post!

    Great tips! I know that I have a drawer full of manuals that really should be addressed… I feel like each time that we buy something new, the manual goes in there and then we never think about it again lol I guarantee that there are at least a few there that we don’t need anymore!

    Broken things definitely need to be thrown out! As for the rest, I love to donate the often extensive results of my organizing, cleaning, and decluttering to the Buy Nothing free market that just started up in my town. The community of people and crafters find such creative ways to upcycle, recycle, or give new life to something. 🙂
