I’m An Organised Mum,These Are The 20 Things You Need To Chuck Now If You Want To Be ᴄʟᴜᴛᴛᴇʀ Free This Year
THERE’S nothing quite like starting a new year with a ᴍᴀssɪᴠᴇ ᴄʟᴇᴀɴ ᴏᴜᴛ, ridding your home of unwanted items that have accumulated over the past 12 months or more.
But if you don’t know where to start, organised mum-of-two Steph Pase has revealed the 20 household items you need to bin asap which will help deᴄʟᴜᴛᴛᴇʀ your home.
While many people might go years before doing a “cleanse”, the Australian mum, who is known for her handy ʜᴏᴜsᴇʜᴏʟᴅ ᴛɪᴘs ᴀɴᴅ ᴛʀɪᴄᴋs, says she does it every three months.
On her website, Just Another Mummy Blog, she wrote: “De-ᴄʟᴜᴛᴛᴇʀing your home can be super ᴏᴠᴇʀᴡʜᴇʟᴍɪɴɢ, and I know one problem most people have is ᴡᴏʀʀʏɪɴɢ about possibly ʀᴇɢʀᴇᴛᴛɪɴɢ ɪᴛᴇᴍs they have culled later on.”
But, she added, there are 20 things you will never regret, or even miss, when you ɢᴇᴛ ʀɪᴅ ᴏF them – particularly now in 2022.
Among the items to ditch, stat, are DVDs coat hangers you’re not using and ᴅᴇᴀᴅ ʙᴀᴛᴛᴇʀɪᴇs. And don’t forget about that pile of mismatched socks you’ve been collecting, in hope you’ll one day find the ᴍɪssɪɴɢ ᴘᴀɪʀ. Chances are, you won’t, ever, so ɢᴇᴛ ʀɪᴅ ᴏF them, now.
Steph also suggested raiding your kitchen and ɢᴇᴛ ʀɪᴅ ᴏF expired
spices, old receipts and menus you’ve collected. As for your wardrobes, shoe boxes are not needed, so chuck them, as well as kids’ clothes that no longer fit.
“All of these are pesky items living in your home that you can ɢᴇᴛ ʀɪᴅ ᴏF with no regrets later on!” Steph said.
By ditching these items, you will create far more space throughout the home making everything look tidy. Fans of the organised mum agreed with her items to cull list, ᴘᴀʀᴛɪᴄᴜʟᴀʀʟʏ ᴏᴅᴅ socks as we ALL have those.
One woman said: “Looking to start your 2022 off feeling ᴄʟᴇᴀɴsᴇᴅ? Pʀᴏ ᴛɪᴘ: get all of those pesky socks that don’t seem to have a mate and throw them in the bin.”
Others were more keen on tackling their spice drawer and wardrobe, with some saying it was particularly rewarding ridding your closet of unused coat hangers.
