200 Things to Throw Away Today

Living with less isn’t about the number of things you get rid of it’s about living with enough to be content and getting rid of the rest. The rest is just clutter, unnecessary, energy-draining clutter.

Here is a list of 200 Things to Throw Away. This list isn’t a list of things that I have gotten rid of myself but of things that I want to will get rid of!

1. Old product boxes (Apple products, TV, etc.)

2. Hangers from the dry cleaners

3. Plastic hangers from the store

4. Expired make up

5. Half-finished projects…you know the one!

6. Magazines (Try a free month of online magazines and see how you like those!)

7. Old emery boards (buy a nice glass one and be done with those scratchy things!)

8. Old paint (Visit Earth911.com to find a place to dispose of it safely)

9. Ugly undergarments you hate to wear (You have those “just in case” pairs too, right?)

10. Bills, taxes, paperwork over 7 years old

11. Socks with holes or without mates…also those lonely socks that have holes too.

12. Extra cups and mugs – How many does your family use in a regular dishwasher load? Add a few more for company and be done with the rest.

13. Books you’ve never read or will never read again

14. Old technology (8 tracks, floppy discs, VHS tapes w/o a player, etc.)

15. Unloved toys

16. Cleaning rags – You only need a few before you’ll wash them again, right?

17. Tea light candles – Use them or lose them.

18. Take out menus you never look at

19. Old greeting cards (Save the super sentimental ones and recycle the rest) Btw, Hallmark’s ecards are a fun & clutter free option!

20. Outdated over the counter drugs and vitamins ....more
