6 Things to Get Rid of in a Decluttering Project

Learning how to declutter your home is an important aspect of maintaining a well-balanced life when it comes to organization. If the storage space within your home is already packed full, then it is time to place those household belongings in storage. Self-storage is a great place to store seasonal clothing, extra furniture, collections, or anything else that is cluttering up your home you do not plan on donating or selling.

Decluttering Tips: 6 Things to Get Rid of in a Decluttering Project

1. Mismatched storage containers: Match up lids to bottoms of storage containers throughout your kitchen. If you can’t find a match, recycle them or throw them away.
2. Old or unused kitchen equipment: Throw out old and unused kitchen equipment. If it’s gathering dust, it’s taking space you could better use for something else.
3. Outdated bathroom items: Throw away old and outdated cosmetics, medicine and first aid items. Check the expiration date and clear out space for anything past its prime.
4. Clothes you don’t wear anymore: Go through your bedroom closets and pull out anything you don’t wear anymore. If it’s still in good shape, donate those items and take strides to decluttering.
5. Throw out old office equipment: Do you still have a fax machine in your home office? Throw out any office equipment you are no longer using to increase storage space around your home; this include old office supplies like pens, pencils, empty tape dispensers, etc.
6. Stacks of magazines, newspapers and unread books: Maybe you’re holding on to those magazines because there’s a recipe you wanted to try out, or you just haven’t had time to read that paperback. If several months have passed and you still aren’t getting around to reading them, recycle them or consider donating them to a hospital, school or senior center. Everything is on the internet now, also.
