Grab the garbage and go!
Dry Cleaning Blues
It’s nice to have a professional keep your clothes in tip-top shape, but after bringing clothes home from the dry cleaner, you have more junk to dealer with than before!
Of course I’m talking about plastic garment bags and wire hangers. Junk and more junk! The plastic can take up space in your closets, so either throw them out before hanging your clothes back up, or use the plastic as garbage can liners. Wire hangers are often cheap and can crease your clothes, so you should consider using wood or velvet hangers instead. One experts recommends leaving a paper bag in your closet to keep wire hangers in for the next time you go to the dry cleaners so that you can return them!
Throw It Away!
Half the time, we end up with clutter because we are hesitant to throw things away in the first place, but getting rid of this garbage can be very freeing and even therapeutic. With many items, it comes down to determining what makes something trash in the first place. Here are some easy ways to decide:
-Tupperware missing a lid
-Toys that are broken or missing pieces
-Old paint cans or unused craft supplies
-Furniture you inherited but don’t particularly like
-College textbooks you don’t use
-Chipped or broken kitchenware
-Socks that are missing their match
-Old cards or unused photographs
-Worn or torn towels and linens
Notice a theme here? It all comes down to how often you really use something that determines its worth or value to you. While many of these things are just plain junk, others can be donated or even sold to people who could truly use it.
