5 Decluttering Ideas of the Week: February 15

I hope your February is going well so far! To give you some decluttering ideas or motivation for the week, here are 5 items you can declutter this week!

Cookbooks You Haven’t Used in a Long Time: Cookbooks can be very helpful, but are there ones you haven’t touched in a while? There are thousands of recipes online, so it might not even be necessary to keep them (or at least keep all of them). Take note of your favorite recipes, test new recipes out (if desired) and donate or regift them.

Extra Reference Books/Encyclopedias: You might still have reference books for specific topics on your bookshelves, but do you still need them? Most of the time now, it’s probably faster to just look things up online instead, so maybe it’s time to donate these and open up extra space.

Used-up Kids Coloring Books or Workbooks: It’s great when kids get a lot of value out of these books and use them up, but if they’re done with them, do they need to stick around?...

Old Musical Instruments: Do you have any musical instruments that you used to play but no longer do? Or something you wanted to learn but never able to really commit?

I hope your January is going well so far! To give you some decluttering ideas or motivation for the week, here are 5 items you can declutter this week!

Picture Frames in your Workspace: Having pictures on your desk at work can add value, but having too many can take up valuable workspace and potentially diminish the value of each one. Consider moving these picture frames temporarily to see if it could be a meaningful switch long-term!

Specially Glassware: Do you have glasses you only use for special occasions or parties? Consider how often these events actually happen and decide if they’re worth taking up cabinet space.

VHS Tapes: VHS...
