I have everything from the bedroom to kitchen to a single piece of paperwork laying around on your work table, and your family or yourself will pat your back after it is done!

This post is all about 100 Things to declutter that make sense.


Bedroom Not Ridden

I do not get how people can manage not to start on the bedroom first.


I cannot move and feel like I have so much unnecessary stuff If I do not start in the bedroom.

things to declutter in bedroom

  1. “The chair” which you always put stuff on top of each other.
  2. Too much furniture that taking too much space.
  3. Last season home decor that you will not need that you can donate or sell.
  4. Old empty candles.

The candle I recommend for you to try during Christmas:

Yankee Candle

Literally, this is in white color good and calming in the eyes perfect for the bedroom. But the smell is citrus musk that reminds me of Christmas. I never knew a candle can bring memories that I remember like it was yesterday.

5. Worn out blankets and sheets.

6. Ripped or thinned overused quilts.

Closet to Spacious

Next, from bedroom not ridden is that when I wake up and I go in have my breakfast I can now tackle much heavier decluttering tasks and took upon my hands my closet.


Here is some closet spacious organizing system that works for me:

7. Clothes you have not got to wear for the past 2 years or so (What is the reason? This happened to me I had clothes I was not wearing for 5 years even and before that, I decluttered and said I could wear them then added another 2 years before I got to donate it).

8. Get rid of clothes that do not fit your size anymore. I tend to always be on a diet and I get different sizes for my clothes. I was in denial of my body size and kept various sizes in my closet that does not suit me.

9. Clothes you did not wear for the last season. For some of you including me, I kept my clothes that are brand new and yes even I had dresses I bought because they look cute and they are still literally on a plastic hanged with tags on them. I should be wearing them more often as I’d like to.

10. Declutter clothes that do not fit your style anymore. I had my phase before of wearing fringes like when I move they sway while I walk or move from side to side. I outgrew my closet based on my age maybe and style and grew to wear neutral dresses that have A-line cuts and more of business type. If you would ask me what was the last thing I bought for clothes it would be the pink blazer for work-related. As we evolved ourselves we tend to have a different style unlike before. I am just more grateful that I can donate my clothes or give them to my relatives who want them. I have this Blazer I am eyeing and have a major crush on. Shout out to all boss female energy this blazer is too powerful.

11. Underwear, Are you guilty of this too? I tend to before to get attached to old ones and I wonder why. Now I am keener on my overall needs and support especially for underwire bras and very uncomfortable underwear. It is very important to have the right size.

12. Not enough basics? Declutter trendy outfits that do not go well with your lifestyle because it is more likely you can only wear them when they are viral. Think long term for the best results and to save your money.

13. Age-appropriate Clothes

14. Work Wear that you need and looks neatly clean

15. Cute gym clothes that do not fit you anymore. Ladies, please do not sacrifice looks from comfort especially in working out clothes or sports bras for running. Always support the gals.

16. Socks that threads are on the loose, or have a big deeper hole in them.

17. Lost pair of socks, What I do is sometimes I use old socks for wiping down furniture or a cleaning rag.

18. Stockings that are destroyed.

19. Old jewelry that has rust on it or jewelry that is again trendy, try tin invest into timeless looks like silver or rose gold and gold.

20. Watches that are already broken or cannot be used anymore.

21. Sunglasses that have cracks on them.

things to declutter before moving

Our house tends to have lots of stuff because we moved from a big house too much compact smaller houses and comes with it our stuff from before. Sometimes I am thinking to myself why did I let our family have all this stuff that we do not use.

What should I get rid of when decluttering?

Bantry with Pantry

Being a foodie too has me having lots of baking and cooking in the kitchen that I need to rummage my pantry for things to cook on daily. My favorite is noodles but you get my point. Now I downsized a lot and have the thinking of things I should store are a big grab and go. (Maybe an apocalypse might come)
