30 THINGS TO DECLUTTER TODAY!



It is that time of the year. Springtime, you already know what that means, spring cleaning. I know a lot of us might not be fans of deep cleaning, but it is something we have to do. I personally think spring is a reminder from God for renewed hope, things that might appear dead begin to resurrect.

The flowers are blooming, the leaves are turning green again and the air is just crisp. This is the perfect time to switch out your fall/winter clothes and bring out the vibrant colors for spring/summer. Now is also a great time to declutter, before you think you need to turn your house inside out to declutter; you can start small and work your way up.


In today’s post, I will be sharing with you 30 things you can declutter today.

1. Old mugs you haven’t used in over two years that is collecting dust in your kitchen cabinet.

2. Clothes that no longer fit or that are no longer your style (For my Nigerian peeps, this includes all the aso-ebi you have accumulated).

3. Shoes you no longer wear.

4. Old or expired makeup.

5. Your kids’ clothes they have outgrown. You can donate this.
