Day 27- Old/Broken Games and Puzzles

Day 27- Old/Broken Games and Puzzles

Today I am coming after your childhood memories! Not really…but I know that is kind of what it feels like to get rid of toys and puzzles. Today, just focus on getting rid of things that you can obviously tell are broken, worn, or missing pieces. This will help you not feel guilty about throwing them away.

I am a huge fan of upcycling. I love turning everyday items into something new…especially if it is something that I no longer have a use for. An example is taking old puzzle pieces and using them for crafts or art. Here is a link to pinterest where there are tons of cute ideas for old puzzles.

Good luck and have fun!!

It is hard to believe that we are 25 days into January. Doesn’t it just feel like we were celebrating the New Year?!

How are you are doing with your resolutions? Are you more organized? Do you have less clutter?

Today is a quick one! Time to minimize your perfume or cologne collection. 

Today is a great day to work on some of your other declutter goals if you get time! The more you do now, the more you get to enjoy the results later!

Day 24- Old Makeup

Today is not only about decluttering, but it is also a little bit about hygiene.  Did you know that it is recommended to replace your mascara every 2-3 months?…even if it is not empty. 

Take a look through your make up drawer today toss anything that is old and that you don’t use regularly.

While you’re in your makeup drawer, go ahead and was your makeup brushes too!  Your face with thank you!

Day 23- BOOKS

Day 23- Books

Today is another hard day, especially if you are an avid reader.

I am not telling you to get rid of books that you read, plan to read, or bring you happiness.

However, I am asking you to take a look through your collections. If there are book that you are never going to read (or use) again, then why do you still have them? DONATE your books. I am not telling you to trash them or burn them, but consider giving them away! Give the gift of reading to someone that might enjoy your books…rather than refusing to get rid of them.
