There’s no better time than this to give your house a deep clean and in order to make your house really looks fresh and organized, you will need to give up all the tons of toss-worthy items your are holding on for years and make some space for new things.
To help you declutter your house and take the right decision on what to throw, we listed some of the most common household items that are only making your house more cluttered and messy.
1- Receipts You Don’t Need.
Receipts can be piling up in the drawers for months and they will not be needed eventually, so shred any receipt that has your signature or credit card number and toss out any receipts for simple cash purchases except the ones you are planning to write off on your annual tax report.
2- Window Bill Envelopes.
Again window bill envelops are one of the things we think we should hold on and over time they can pile up. To get rid of these envelops remove the plastic window on the envelop and toss in your recycling bin.
3- Scratched CDs and DVDs discs.
Combat discs are made of a blend of materials like bauxite, polycarbonate and aluminum. They should be tossed in your recycling bin. If the discs have minor scratches then you can repair them by rubbing a mild abrasive over the non label side of the discs in a specific motion starting from the center and going outwards. If you really want to get rid of them then consider donating, selling or trading them.
4- Old Phones Accessories.
You could be having a drawer full of old gadgets that work but will probably never get used again so it is just wise to get rid of them by donating or selling at a cheap price online to free the space. As for cell phone accessories, you can sell what is still good as second hand, donate them or throw them in the pin.
5- Creating Cards.
Creating cards can’t just be tossed in your paper recycling bin unless they are made only of paper within any decorative elements like ribbons and glitter.
To give your creating cards another life, scrub off the glitter and all decorations and put with the rest of your paper goods for recycling and you can save those decorative elements for other cool activities like homemade cards or scrapbooking.
