So it’s coming up on week four of quarantine, and I hope you guys are all hanging in there! It has been really challenging, but I’ve been trying to look at it as a time to get super organized and just a time for us all to get our lives together in general. Unless you’re already 100% together, in which case tell me your secrets! So today’s post is going to be on things you can declutter during quarantine to improve your mental health and overall wellbeing.
Over time and the busyness of everyday life, clutter builds up so easily and we don’t even really notice it until there’s a pile of junk sitting right in front of us. This really is not good for your productivity or your sanity.
There are tons of things you can get rid of though! Ideally you donate or give away things that are still in working condition, recycle papers and magazines and only throw away whatever doesn’t fall into those first two categories so this can be somewhat of an environmentally friendly project! 🙂
Keep scrolling for 30 things that you can declutter in your home during quarantine, or any time of the year.
Piles of paper
Expired food in your fridge and cupboards
Electronics that you don’t need anymore
Garbage in your car
Clothes you don’t wear anymore
Shoes you don’t wear anymore
Unused hangers in your closet
Unused grocery tote bags
Finish up almost empty makeup and beauty products
Old charging cords
Your wallet – take out expired ATM cards, membership cards you don’t need anymore, etc
Almost empty candles
Extra blankets and towels you don’t use (animal shelters are ALWAYS in need of these!)
