Commit yourself to tackling this area the next day it rains. Whether you’re stashing old clothing, keepsakes, or simply things you no longer use—it’s time to either get rid of these items, give them away, or find a more convenient storage place.
While it can be challenging to throw out what's essentially a freebie—your large collection of wire hangers isn’t doing you any favors.
Along the same lines, toss those dryer cleaner bags your clothing came in. They not only look unsightly, but they can also cause your clothing to yellow or have a residual odor from the dry cleaning fluid.
Whether something doesn’t fit, doesn’t "spark joy," or isn’t wearable anymore because it's stained or worn out—it needs to go.
It's not possible for bedding of the best quality to last forever. Throw away sheets that have holes in them, pillowcases that have makeup marks on them, or white sheets that are now a dull gray color.
Nightstand drawers can become a dumping ground for miscellaneous items, including old books (or new books that didn’t quite hold your interest), bills, receipts, or other papers.
Like clothing, shoes have a finite life. But unlike clothing, old shoes can cause significant problems. Old sneakers may no longer be supportive enough for walking or other exercise.
