  7. Throw pillows that no longer go with your decor.
  8. Linens you don’t use.

  13. Hair ties & pins that are in bad shape.
  14. Nail polish that’s crusted shut/out of style/gross.

  17. Toys your kids never play with.
  18. Jewelry you haven’t worn in more than a month.
  19. Old cans of paint (colors that are no longer in your home) taking up space in the storage room.
  20. A sentimental item you’ve been guilted into keeping that you don’t want.
  21. Clothing in storage that is just taking up space.
  22. Outdoor wear that is outdated or unloved (touques, mix-matched gloves, scarves, snowpants, coats etc…).
  23. Old magazines and paperwork that have already been read.
  24. Cleaning products and chemicals . Be sure to dispose of safely!
