It happens every January…the holiday decorations come down and the itch to get organized begins. It really is the perfect time to tackle those closets and drawers, to purge and unclutter all the corners of your home. I actually love this process–I think it’s so cathartic, and there’s nothing better than getting rid of all the unnecessary and broken items taking up space. When your space is organized and decluttered, it brings peace and clarity, and I know that for me, I just function so much better when my home is in order. To help the process a little, I’ve made a list of things to throw away (or donate, like books!), based on each room in your home!
Here are more details on how to either dispose of or donate your items…
To clarify, when I say “things to throw away”, I don’t technically mean to throw away each of these items! A lot of them, yes, while others can be donated or given repurpose. Anything broken or in disrepair can disposed of or recycled properly, but there are plenty of things worth donating. Books, DVD’s, outgrown bikes, unused holiday items and decor that are in good shape are all things that can be taken to your local thrift store, shelter house, or Habitat Re-store.
