40 Items to get rid of today

It always amazes me how much STUFF we manage to accumulate over time.

Are you fed up with trying to shove more stuff into a cupboard where it doesn’t fit, or trip over those extra storage tubs that you haven’t got around to putting away, or waste time looking for something because it’s lost in all the clutter?

Do you become more and more impatient and frustrated until finally you’ve just had ENOUGH? Yep. That’s me too. So I decided to put together a practical list of 40 items you can get rid of today.

Let’s get started!


1. Empty alcohol bottles
