Easy Decluttering Must-Do’s At Home
In this unprecedented time, many of us are finding ourselves sheltering at home, working from home, and homeschooling, but being at home twenty-four/seven can make us feel a little cooped-up and bored. So, whats the best way to break-up this stay-at-home feeling? Well, little home projects like decluttering your kitchen and bathroom. Tackling one or more of these little home projects will take your mind off of what’s going on and give you a feeling of satisfaction with your home. If you don’t know where to start your decluttering project, then you’re in luck because Kingston has you covered. We have all the tips and tricks for you to start your next decluttering project, so read on and get started!
Toss Spoiled and Expired Food
The best room to start your decluttering project? Your kitchen. Believe it or not, but you have a lot of things in there that can go right into the garbage bin or compost pile. The first step is by tossing out old, expired food.
Like many of us, we tend to think that we can unintentionally keep old and well-expired things like spices, canned goods, and condiments. Make sure to toss them out because what good can expired food do us?
Reduce Office Accessories
Now, if you happen to have lots of kids who happen to be homeschooling right now, then you know how messy your office and school supplies can get. You often find yourself with lots of old pens, pencil nubs, and broken rulers.
Make sure to toss out old pens that no longer work, the broken art supplies, and anything you haven’t used in a long time. Be sure to also look over your other office supplies like rulers and staplers and let go of anything you don’t need to have.
Donate Unused Blankets
Blankets are a common gift that many people love to give during the holidays, but we all tend to gather a lot over the years and they can grow a lot in numbers. If you are being realistic, we don’t need twenty pairs of blankets.
So, make sure to go through your blankets and make use of them by donating your unused blankets to charity or shelters. They will do much more good there instead of gathering dust in your closet.
Donate Reusable Grocery Bags
While reusable bags are eco-friendly and far more sustainable than plastic bags, they can grow large in numbers. But if we are all being realistic, how many do we really need? From the number of times you go to the grocery store a week to the amount of food and necessities you actually buy, do you really need twenty reusable bags?
Make good use of them and give some to your friends or other family members outside of your home. You can also donate them to food banks and shelters that will use them as they distribute food and supplies to those in need.
