It's Spring, and that means it's time for some Spring Cleaning!
Clutter is always a major issue in my house, I bet it is in yours! We let it build up for a year or so, and it just takes over!
Here is a list of items that no-one needs to keep in their house! Whether it's a good quality item, and you can sell or donate it, perhaps recycle or even upcycle. If you can't do any of them, then simply throw it in the bin!
* Old Dishcloths & Sponges -
One week tops, then throw them out! They harbour germs, and just get plain disgusting!
* Clothes That You Haven't Worn For Years-
If you haven't worn them, you wont wear them. If they're in good condition, donate to charity!
* Clothes Have Been Meaning To Fix-
Once again, if you haven't fixed them, you won't. Chuck em!
* Old Shoes -
If they're in good condition, donate.
If they're not, throw them out!
* Expired Make Up
If it's expired, chuck it out!
If it's not, check here to see how long you should keep it for.
* Chipped Glasses/Mugs/Plates
* Toothbrushes -
Full of germs! Replace regularly!
* Holey Socks
* 'Spare' Bedding -
Ugly bedding you use for emergency, or guests. Don't bother.
If good condition, donate. If not, chuck it!
* Out of Date Food
* Bits & Bobs That Will Possibly Be Useful For A Future DIY
* Old Batteries
* Your Entire Junk Drawer
* Your Old School/College Work -
Look through it, if it's not amazing or heartwarming, chuck it!
* Odd Socks-
Seriously, they're all alone in the world.
* Greetings Cards -
Unless they have deep sentimental value, chuck!
* Old Calendars
* Terrible Movies -
You won't watch them ever again. So get rid!
If they work, and are in good condition, donate! If not, throw them out!
* Ugly Underwear -
Maybe keep ONE for emergency fat days. Otherwise, no one deserves ugly underwear.
