25 THINGS TO DECLUTTER TODAY
CLOTHING YOU DON’T FEEL GOOD IN
You know those items of clothing that make you feel self-conscious every time you wear them? You want to like them or you like the idea of them but you just don’t feel comfortable or confident when you wear them. Decluttering those items will make you feel so much better about yourself and your body!
BRAS & UNDERWEAR
I think it’s pretty common to have a handful of bras, underwear and even socks that we don’t like wearing. When you reach this part of your underwear pile, you know it’s time to do laundry! Ask yourself, why are you keeping these if you don’t actually like wearing them? Instead, just get rid of them and do laundry a day or two earlier!
OUT OF SEASON CLOTHING
It might seem weird to declutter items that aren’t in season right now, but there’s really no reason why you shouldn’t just get it over with!
If you’re like me and live somewhere that winter lasts most of the year, you may have accumulated an insane amount of winter hats, mittens and scarves. But if you always find yourself reaching for the same pair, maybe it’s time to get rid of some of the excess!
Do you hold onto jewelry thinking you’re going to wear it? If you only ever find yourself reaching for the same items every day – donate the rest! Someone else will enjoy it so much more!
Take some time to go through your childhood items, or the items you saved for your own babies! I don’t think there’s anything wrong with wanting to save a few sentimental items, but do so in a way that doesn’t create excess clutter! Maybe make a shadow box for your kids, displaying your favourite items.
I absolutely don’t believe you have to get rid of all your boardgames if they are something you love! But maybe just take some time to declutter the ones you never use, or ones that are missing pieces!
Go through your fridge & pantry and get rid of anything that is passed it’s expiration date! You might be surprised by how much you find.
Go through your spice cabinet and get rid of any spices that are expired, dried out, or that you just never use!
TEA AND COFFEE
I’m a bit of a tea hoarder – I really like to have a variety of teas on hand for guests! But I still make sure to keep my tea drawer to a minimum and declutter teas that never get used!

VITAMINS AND SUPPLEMENTS
I’m definitely not minimal when it comes to supplementation! I like trying different things to see what my body responds well to. I think part of creating health is being willing to experiment with different products. Sometimes they work for your body and sometimes they don’t! It’s just part of the process, but I still make sure to declutter my supplements regularly.

If you’re someone who loves collecting fridge magnets as a travel souvenir – that’s totally fine! But if you’re like me and just see magnets on your fridge as clutter, take some time to declutter the ones you don’t need!
PROJECTS YOU WON’T FINISH
Sometimes we buy things with good intentions, but then never actually follow through. If you have craft supplies sitting around waiting to be used for a specific project, or you have furniture sitting in your garage waiting to be refinished. Give yourself 2 options: either DO the project in the next week or so, or accept that it is no longer a priority and donate it!
I love to collect baskets, but there have been times that I end up with more than I need! In this situation, I either like to find a home for the basket, or declutter it!
If you’ve been following me for long, you know that I am a crazy plant lady! Haha. I recently realized that I hate reviving dying plants – so I got rid of/gave away all of my plant rescues!
Even if it’s not currently Christmas time – there’s no reason why you can’t spend some time to go through your Christmas items! Donate the ones that you are no longer excited about or just feel like clutter!
Do you have duplicate garden tools, tools that are broken, or tools that you just never use? Declutter them and free up that space in your garage or garden shed!
Are you holding onto items for a hobby you want to do? Maybe you have skis because you want to go skiing more, but in reality you never use them. Maybe you purchased yarn & knitting needles because you wanted to start knitting, but then you never actually did. Be realistic with yourself, and ask yourself if you’ll actually ever use these items!
CAR GLOVE BOX
Go declutter whatever random items are in your car glove box! While you’re doing that it’s a good idea to organize an emergency kit for your car!
Do you have duplicate razors, or old handles that you never repurchased razor cartridges for? Purge the extra razors that you don’t need, and even consider switching to a more eco-friendly version!
Whether it’s paint from an old home, or a paint colour that you didn’t love, extra paint can often be donated to places like Habitat for Humanity, or your local dump! Paint has a long lifetime, so likely someone else can still use the paint that you have sitting in your garage.
My 1 year old dog still destroys his toys, so every few weeks I have to go through his toy bin and get rid of the toys that he’s torn apart.
If you haven’t already done so, I highly recommend switching to re-usable canvas bags instead of paper or plastic bags! But even when you’re using reusable bags, they sometimes need to be decluttered! We tend to accumulate canvas bags because they are often given away at conferences, or by businesses. I find I really only need 5-7 canvas bags in my home!
TRAVEL SIZED PRODUCTS
Have you collected dozens of travel sized products either through subscription boxes, or from hotels? If you have products you know you aren’t actually going to use, they can be donated to homeless shelters!
Receipts tend to accumulate in my purse and my car. I personally don’t hold onto all of my grocery receipts or receipts for small purchases longer than a few weeks. So once the return period is over, I throw those receipts out! If it’s a receipt for a more expensive item with a longer warranty, I will file it properly!
Ok, so I’m not suggesting that you throw away your spare change! But having just one spot in your home for spare change is really helpful to reduce clutter!
