Day 21- Jewelry

Day 21- Jewelry

Styles and design preferences change. What you liked a few years ago, you might not be a fan of any more.

This concept is fine to most people when we are talking about clothes, but the same is true for jewelry too.

Take a look through your vast collection of necklaces, bracelets, watches, and earrings. If you see an item that you are never going to wear again, remove it from your collection.

From there, the next step is up to you. If it has sentimental value, maybe a family member would want it. If the piece contains diamonds or other gem stones, maybe you can get it turned into something that you want. If it is a piece of cheap costume jewelry, then maybe it is time to donate or trash it.

Day 20- SHOES!

Day 20- Shoes

Some of you may not be mentally ready to look at decluttering your shoe collection, but the day is here. It is time to take a close look at the piles of shoes around the house.

Do you have multiple sets of running shoes (the pair you use, the old pair, and the really really old pair)??

Do you have heels stacked in your closet that may still fit your feet, but no longer fit your personal style?

Do you have a pair of shoes that you adore, but they are stained or worn out?

GET RID OF THEM!

I’m not telling you to get rid of all of the shoes that you love….just the ones that really don’t have a purpose in your life anymore!

Day 19- Hats, Gloves, Scarves

gloves and winter accessories

Do you have a bin or a drawer full of mismatched gloves, random scarves, and various hats? Here in the northeast US, we are well into the winter weather. Dump out that bin of mismatched stuff. If you haven’t used it yet this winter, you don’t need it. There are, however, people that would have a need for your winter weather gear.

  • Donate your winter weather accessories to a goodwill, homeless shelter, or thrift store.
  • You could also reach out to teacher friends and see if they have a need for any extras in their classrooms for kids that are in need (or forget them).
  • Post them for free on social media and see if anyone has a need.

I have said it before, but these types of items have absolutely no value to you sitting in boxes not being used and taking up space. Think about how great it will feel to know that you are able to give these to someone that can use them.
