Weekly Decluttering Ideas: February 1

Welcome back to another set of 5 things to declutter this week! Today, I’m sharing another list of five overlooked items you might have in your home that could be decluttered. 

Before we get into the list, if you are new to decluttering, you might benefit from my 10-Step Plan to Start Your Decluttering Journey. This is a free guide that helps you start decluttering the right way, and you get your copy by clicking here.

Old Sponges and Dish Brushes: These items can wear down quickly, and can get gross fast. If you have any sponges or brushes that no longer clean well or look past their prime, it might be time to toss them. 

Mystery Food from the Fridge: Sometimes our leftovers get lost in the fridge, and when we find them later on, we can’t figure out what they were because they’re too far gone. If there are any mystery containers in your fridge, clear them out and toss any spoiled food. Even better, set a new location in your fridge where you will be reminded to use up these items in a timely fashion!

If you are looking for more kitchen decluttering tips, or other decluttering tips you can try in any part of your home, I was featured in Redfin's recent blog post titled Expert Organizing Tips for a Tidy Home in 2021. Check it out here.

Small Bedside Electronics: If you have items like book lights, chargers, diffusers, etc. that you don’t really use, reflect about whether you will realistically use them in the future. Otherwise, they don’t need to take up that valuable bedside real estate.

Dried-out Nail Polish: If it’s not usable anymore, there’s no reason to keep it. Sometimes nail polish can be saved, but if it’s gotten to the point that it’s dried out, it probably wasn’t getting used enough to begin with. 

Time-sucking Social Media Accounts: It’s nice to check out what’s going on with social networks, but is there a hidden cost?  If certain accounts are taking up a lot of your time,  distracting you from more important tasks, or making you feel worse about yourself, it’s likely time for a break from them.
