7 Things to Get Rid of in the Next 7 Days


Decluttering doesn’t have to be a stressful activity, and in fact, it can be quite therapeutic if you choose to just get rid of one item per day.

Besides, most of the time, when we want to start decluttering our homes, it’s difficult to know where to begin, so why not start slowly by just picking one task for one day of the week? Here is a list of 7 things you can declutter in the next 7 days.

Old Documents and Notes

We gather so much information in the form of papers and documents during our lifetimes, but it’s important to remember that most of these items are dated, and there is no reason to keep every single paper for the rest of time. Of course, you should glance over at the pile of papers you haven’t checked in years, and if you see that it doesn’t serve a purpose any longer, then perhaps it’s time that it goes into the trash.

Extra Kitchen Utensils

When our cooking utensil drawers are overflowing then, it can get pretty challenging to keep track of what we use and don’t use. Start by chucking anything chipped, warped, or broken in any way, and move from there. Next, you could tackle the items that you have in double and, lastly, the items that you never or rarely use.

Specialty Appliances

It’s nice to have a machine that can make ice cream, quesadillas, and whatnot, but you’ve got to ask yourself if you’ve used the thing in the last year. If the answer is no, then the chances that you will use it the following year are probably zero to none. Is it worth the space if you use it once every five years? We’ll leave that up to you to decide.

Old Makeup

For most makeup products, there’s a one-year expiration date from the date of opening that product. You wouldn’t want to use any rancid makeup on your delicate skin, so perhaps it’s best to declutter your makeup hoard and get rid of anything that’s been piling on the dust and taking up unnecessary space.

Reusable and Plastic Bags

Most people have a stockpile of plastic and reusable bags stashed in their kitchens from all the trips to the grocery store. If you are one of those people – we see you! Just kidding, but seriously. This could be a great reminder for you to tackle this portion of your kitchen in your decluttering mission. We don’t need 20 of these; at most, seven will do.

Outdated Magazines

You may have a decent pile of magazines that you once read, but as your pile grows bigger and bigger, the likelihood that you’ll read all the magazines again diminishes. Perhaps this is the next thing to undertake for your decluttering mission.

Expired Medication

As with most things in life, everything has an expiration date, and this includes medication. If you have expired medicine, then feel free to declutter by checking with your police station or local pharmacy to see if they accept drop-offs.
