15 Useless Items To Get Rid Of


We’re all hanging onto items that are cluttering up our homes; items we don’t need anymore and should have thrown away or donated months ago. Purging these useless things frees up so much glorious space we wonder why we didn’t do it sooner. Here is a list of some of those items you should recycle, donate, or toss right away and I promise, it won’t even take that long to deal with.



1 | Countless Tote Bags
Sure, they’re useful, but does anyone really need a drawer full of them?

2 | Old Magazines
If you read them that’s cool although I doubt you do. Recycle that stack of dusty back issues.

3 | Unwanted Presents
It feels cruel, however, they would be better off in homes that appreciated them.

4 | Nail Varnish Colours You Never Wear
As lovely as it is to have a multitude of colours to choose from, it’s rare those weird colours are ever going to feature on your fingertips.

5 | Unused Appliances
If you haven’t used it in the months (years?) you’ve had it, are you ever going to?

6 | Clothes That No Longer Fit
This might take a little longer to tackle; if you need help dealing with your wardrobe, here’s a guide.

7 | Empty Boxes
Why do we keep these? Nobody knows. Recycle them.

8 | Worn Out Linen or Bath Towels
They look and feel old and tatty, replace them and revel in the glory of new towels and fresh bedsheets.

9 | Unloved Books
Whether you’ve read them or not, unloved books are heartbreaking. Pass on to friends who will enjoy them.

10 | Shoes That Hurt Your Feet
You’re not going to wear them so donate, donate, donate.

11 | Old Make-up and Expired Products
They are totally gross - bin them.

12 | Empty Jars
As useful as they are, nobody ever needs a cupboard full of them. Keep what you need and recycle the rest.

13 | Anything Broken (That You Can’t Be Bothered To Fix)
Either get them fixed, give them to someone who will, or throw them away.

14 | Outdated Paperwork
Why do we all have a drawer full of totally useless and irrelevant paperwork? Shred and recycle it all.

15 | Skincare or Beauty Products That Break You Out
The money is already wasted and there's no point in pretending they're going to be used. Replace with something kinder for your skin.
