STUFF YOU SHOULD GET RID OF – IMMEDIATELY:

STUFF YOU SHOULD GET RID OF – IMMEDIATELY:

⇒ Outgrown and unworn clothes:  If those jeans haven’t fit since high school, and that sweater is even too ugly for an ugly Christmas sweater party, throw it out. (But my jeans were ill-fitting, even in high school!) I have been waiting for plaid pants to come back into style since grade 9!!! They may fit one leg??

⇒ Broken jewelry:  Throw out or donate any costume jewelry that isn’t being used, and throw out broken necklaces or earrings that have no worth. Broken pieces that are valuable can be sold at many jewelry stores.

⇒ Expired cosmetics:  The old stuff has a plethora of bacteria, mold and yeast. Toss mascara after 3 months, liquid foundation after 6, and lipstick after 2 years.  (No one has old makeup laying around, do they?)

⇒ Wire hangers:  Replacing them with sturdy plastic or wood ones will freshen up your closet space. They’re better for your clothes too.

⇒ Old shoes:  Old smelly shoes cluttering a closet serve no purpose. Donate the ones that are OK, and trash the rest.

⇒ Expired medication:  Not only is it unsafe, it’s just not that effective. It’s best to find a drug disposal program in your area. Do you mean not everyone keeps their 3 year old antibiotics in case of an emergency sinus infection??

⇒ Games and puzzles with pieces missing:  They’re no good to anybody. (What’s Monopoly without the race car?) Can anyone say JENGA?

⇒ Movies and books you’ll never use again: Donate ‘em…sell ‘em…or if they’re in poor condition, chuck ‘em!
