What To Remove From Your Home This Year

If it does not spark joy, do not keep it. That’s what Marie Kondo has taught us in most of her decluttering books as well as in her Netflix series (a must-watch!). Sometimes, we just hold on to things because we can’t really figure out what we can do to them. But the new year gives us an urge to declutter and remove things that are not really important to us. This is the perfect time to get rid of all the junk and let your space breathe.

New year, new you. Remove these things from your home and live a life with less clutter and a more space:

1. Old calendars

Do not hang on to your old calendars. If you cannot use it, remove it from your home or recycle it.

2. Old power cords

In most cases, you can no longer use your old power cords for your new devices. Dispose them of properly—some establishments accept disposal of these types of stuff.

3. Old pens

Pens with no ink are useless. If it’s not working, you’ve got to get rid of it. Please say no to sentimental clutter.

4. Mismatched socks

Still can’t find the lost match after a year? You might want to toss it out or repurpose it as dust rags.

5. Shoes you haven’t worn

If it does not fit you, donate or sell it.

6. Extra accessories

If there are accessories you have not worn in years, organise it then sell or donate them. Or else it will all pile up and result in clutter.

7. Appliances you never use

We’re all guilty of buying appliances we never use. Don’t wait until these appliances take over your home! Perhaps you can donate it or repurpose it as a housewarming gift.

8. Warped food containers

Check all your food containers in your kitchen drawer. If you’ve found warped food containers, throw them away or repurpose them!

9. Old medications

If your medicines are past its prime, throw them out. However, disposing medicines should be done with utmost care because it can be misused if found in your trash.
