20 Things You Can Declutter Today ~ Minimalist Home

Declutter your home and live clutter-free. As a minimalist, I have a few decluttering tips and ideas to help you declutter and organize your home. Declutter your home today with this decluttering motivation. You will not miss getting rid of these things.

It's amazing how a few simple changes can turn your home into a haven of peace and tranquility. A home is a sanctuary for living a beautiful life, not merely a place to store our stuff. Clutter can make us feel agitated, and anxious, taking away from the simple comforts of home.

When deciding what items to keep and what to let go of, ask yourself, “Does this item support the life I’m trying to create.”

Here are 20 household items that you can declutter to pave the way for a clutter-free and serene home.

  1. Tupperware: Bid farewell to the jumbled mess of lids and containers. Keep a few versatile pieces and let the rest find a new home.

  2. Expired Spices: Spices lose their magic over time. Check your spice rack and toss anything that has lost its flavor.

  3. Unused Kitchen Gadgets: That egg holder seemed like a good idea at the time, but if it's been collecting dust in the back of your cupboard it's time to let it go.

  4. Mugs & Water Bottles: Keep the ones that bring you joy and say goodbye to the mismatched, chipped, or promotional ones.

  5. Electronics: Old chargers, cables, and gadgets can clutter your drawers. Recycle or donate what you no longer use.

  6. Cleaning Supplies: Consolidate half-empty bottles of the same product. Toss the cleaning supplies you don’t use.

  7. Expired Medications: Safely dispose of any expired or unused medications & vitamins cluttering your medicine cabinet. Combine half-empty bandage boxes, and throw out the packaging. 

  8. Unused Beauty Products: That half-empty bottle of lotion you haven't touched in a year? Fingernail polish that is so old you can’t open it.  It's time to let go.

  9. Expired Food: Going through the cupboards and fridge tossing out all food that is expired.

  10. Duplicated Kitchen Utensils: How many spatulas do you need? Keep the essentials and donate the duplicates.

  11. Accessories: If you forgot that you even owned an accessory it’s time to let it go. Keep the jewelry, hats, and purses that you love, and donate the rest.

  12. Unused Cookbooks: If you find yourself reaching for a couple of your favorite cookbooks, consider passing on those other ones to someone who might cherish them.

  13. Office supplies: Eliminate all broken pens, pencils, and dried-out markers. Only keep the office supplies that you use regularly.

  14. Lonely Socks: Where do all the missing sock partners go? It's time to part ways with the singles.

  15. Unused Vases: A couple of vases in various sizes are plenty.

  16. Obsolete Paperwork: Shred outdated bills and paperwork. Digitalize what you need and reclaim drawer space.

  17. Extra Bedding & Linen: Keep what you need and are still in good condition and donate the rest. Someone out there could use those extra blankets.

  18. Unused Hobbies: The unused board games that are missing most of their pieces. It's time to make room for activities you genuinely enjoy.

  19. Excessive Candles: Keep a few for ambiance and let go of the ones collecting dust.

  20. Extra Hangers: A closet overflowing with hangers can be frustrating when choosing an outfit. Keep what you need and donate the rest.

Remember, decluttering is a journey, not a race. Take it one step at a time, beginning with the items that are easiest to let go. Enjoy the peace and serenity in your clutter-free home.
