Spring is here (sort of) and one big must-do entails tossing the old stuff to make space for the new. Spring cleaning, here we come! If you’re lost at sea, here is what to consider during the big clean-out.
Clean out your closet
Make a point of trying on those clothes you literally never wear. Still not gonna wear it? Consider donating, recycling, or selling it.
Check those random things you are keeping for unclear reasons
Collecting notebooks or keeping used tins to make some decoupage project out of it is one thing, but keeping old scraps of illegible paper from your uni years is just filling your space with noise. Get rid of the useless thing, and quit the hoarding.
Consider spreading the book love
If you have some books you have read hundreds of time and you wouldn’t mind some extra space, it might be a good idea to donate them. Spread the love!
What about those knick knacks you actually hate?
Bad gifts kept on a shelf to collect dust and knick knacks you bought on a whim? Well, those might go, too. Make space for that piece of decor you’ve been saving for, and avoid overcrowded surfaces simply being honest with yourself.
Is it time to change your (very) old furniture?
It might be. If your couch broke a spring or two, or if your table is being devoured by woodworms, it might be time for a trip to Ikea (after one to the dumpster).
