Easy Decluttering Project

To start anew is what I had in mind when I started this blog. Letting go of negative things in my life, in my mind, and in our house. I know for a fact that I can’t easily do that, but doing something about it makes you closer to your goal, am I right?

I was scrolling through my Instagram feed and I saw a post that reminded me to declutter our house. Our house is so small and over the years, we accumulated more and more crap that I know for sure some of them we don’t even need. Our house feels crowded and I want to change that. I keep planning and planning of things to do about it in my head but never actually did anything about it. Yeah, it happens.

I don’t consider myself a minimalist, but I can be if I really want to. It’s really nice to live with less. Easier and lighter, both mentally and financially. But having a big family like mine? Becoming a minimalist is a dream. Well, if I live on my own, I can be what I want to be. Sooooon!

If you are thinking of decluttering some things at your own home, you might want to start with these eight easy things to declutter right now.

  1. DVDs — this one is easy. We don’t have any DVDs anymore.
  2. Dried out markers/pens — I have to go through my siblings stuffs’ first, because I know for sure they have a lot of dried out markers and pens.
  3. Expired food — thankfully, we don’t have any expired food. We don’t get much leftover food at home. If we do, we usually share it to our neighbors. This is one of the nicest thing I like about being Filipino, we don’t mind giving and receiving anything from our neighbors/friends.
  4. Socks without a match — will definitely have a lot to of this to get rid of. I don’t know where the other pairs go.
  5. Magazines — I used to collect magazines (especially when I was still maintaining my beauty and fashion blog), but not anymore and I got rid of them a long time ago.
  6. Books you’ll never read again — oh boy! This one is probably hard. I love my books. And I still have a lot of them that I haven’t read. But will definitely see which one I’m willing to give up. I will either give them away or sell them online.
  7. Old receipts — man, I have a lot of this! They can be seen everywhere in the house. I don’t know why but I feel like I can’t just throw them away. I keep thinking that I might need them for future use.
  8. Extra coat hangers — we don’t have any of this, so this one is also easy! 😀

Are you a minimalist or want to be one? Do you find this easy? Tell me what you think.
