7 Household Items You Can Throw Away RIGHT NOW
Many people do not realize how much worthless clutter they are holding onto. It is important to take a clutter inventory and get a true idea of what you have, so you can effectively let go of what you no longer need. Listed below are 7 household items you can throw away right now, to make room for the things you actually need. Are you ready to take inventory, start tossing, and enjoy a clutter free space? Here is what you need to know.
1. Paper bills
With the ability to view and pay bills digitally, there is no reason to clutter your counters with paper bills. So enroll for paperless billing and online bill pay, and save yourself the mess. Not only does online bill pay keep your counters clean, sometimes you will get a discount for going paperless, and it helps the planet as well!
2. Mismatched Plastic Containers
When is the last time you rummaged through your storage containers and saw what actually still fits and matches? Take a few minutes to go through your plastic storage containers and match the pieces up. Then, get rid of the pieces that no longer have a mate.
3. Broken plastic items
This seems like a strange category, right? But let me explain! How many broken plastic hangers, laundry baskets, storage containers, and utensils do you have around the house? Just take a look, you might be surprised how many of these items you have. It is time for these items to go! Toss those broken items into recycling and stop allowing them to take up space.
When was the last time you checked the expiration dates on your toiletries? Go through the shampoo, conditioner, perfumes, lotions, and makeup and check items to see which ones are no longer safe to use. Check the expiration dates and toss out any items that are no longer current.
For some reason, people have a hard time throwing magazines away. It could be the recipes or DIY project tutorials inside, but there is an easy solution for that. Simply tear out the recipe or tutorial you are interested in and toss the rest of the magazine into the recycling bin. Remember most magazines also share this information online, so should you need to reference it later you will be able to find it online.
6. Expired food and medication
When is the last time you went through your cabinets to check for expired food and medications? Just like you check through your toiletries, you should check through your kitchen and medicine cabinets. Get a garbage bag ready and get rid of any and all items that are expired. Food items can be safely tossed, but call your local pharmacy and ask how to properly dispose of expired medications.
7. CD’s and VHS tapes
Ask yourself if you will honestly listen to or watch these cd’s and vhs tapes again. If they are special family tapes or events, you can always have them transferred safely to DVD. Otherwise, just plan on streaming your music and movies so you can enjoy them without them taking up any room.
It is time to take control of your house and clear away that clutter! Consider these 7 household items you can throw away right now. You might be surprised how freeing it feels to get rid of these items so you can start fresh in a clean and organized space!
