5 Decluttering Ideas of the Week: October 25

I hope your October has been going well! To give you some decluttering ideas or motivation for the week, here are 5 items you can declutter this week!

Underutilized Office Furniture: If you have a home office, is there any furniture that isn’t used to its full potential? This can include things like file cabinets or bookshelves (or even smaller organizers and desk accessories). If most of these pieces are empty and something smaller could be used instead, consider decluttering these to open up your office.

Sentimental Items: Sentimental clutter can be difficult to deal with, but there are alternative ways to preserve these memories, such as with a photo or decluttering journal, where you document the items you let go of and the associated memories. While you might have a lot of sentimental clutter, just try to let go of one thing today.

Broken Printers/Scanners: If an old printer or scanner isn’t working and costs too much to be repaired, it probably does not need to sit around your space. Look up recycling centers in your area to dispose of these, in addition to any other related electronic waste you might need to tackle.

Craft Supplies From Crafts You No Longer Use: The crafts you used to work on brought value then, but if you don’t use them anymore, the supplies don’t need to take up space. See if they can be used for other projects you work on now, or if someone else in your life could use them for their crafts. You could always donate them to a community center or a school instead.

Dried-Up/Outdated Home Products: Sometimes after working on home projects, the products we used sit around too long until the next project, and we find they are not usable anymore. This has definitely happened to us since we have been homeowners. If these items aren’t salvageable, find the proper way to discard them.
