44 things to declutter before the end of 2017

What you can declutter easily

This year is almost over and many of my clients and friends are looking forward to 2018. Some are taking a few days off, spending time with the family and relaxing after a few busy weeks at work. Isn’t it amazing how we can be so focused and productive just to meet the weekly, monthly or even annual targets? Wouldn’t it be great to always be that driven?

Getting rid of unnecessary items in your home and office can give you that focus! Creating space, you see what really matters, what’s truly urgent and you can act accordingly, saving you time and energy. So what do we recommend you declutter in the final days of 2017? Here’s our list of 44 items you can easily let go:

  1. Glasses no longer matching your prescription
  2. Separated body lotions
  3. Dried mascara
  4. Expired make up
  5. Out of date medicine
  6. Puzzles and games with pieces missing
  7. Toys your kids no longer play with
  8. Product descriptions

  1. My favorite – “Bras that no longer support you”….LOL! If only I could find one that does. 🙂 Thank you, Agni @ OLM!
