One thing mini-storage providers in Greenville, NC and all around the country know, is that the biggest part of moving and setting up for storage is getting rid of the clutter. Every time someone moves, so much of their clutter has to be sorted through and thrown away. Whether you’re getting ready for a big move or just want to stay organized, here are 5 things you can throw out this weekend.

1. Piles of Receipts

Go ahead, dig through your purse and wallet and pull out all those balled up receipts. If there’s no reason to save the receipts- throw them out! They are just occupying space and making more mess.

2. Old and Expired Cosmetics

Don’t keep old makeup- if it’s been more than 6 months, it’s time to go. Same goes for lotions, perfumes, and shampoo. It’s not going to work the way you want it to and there’s probably a reason you haven’t used it. Chuck it.

3. Unused Jars and Storage Containers

If you’re not using them, you definitely don’t actually need them. Believe it, there is actually such a thing as too many boxes or storage containers. Get rid of them or donate so someone else can use the storage.

4. Unworn and Old Clothes

If you’re not wearing it, you don’t need it in your closet. Far too often people buy and keep clothes because it represents the type of person they want to be. You don’t have room for that in your life. Same thing goes for old clothes. If it has holes or it’s fading, you need to get rid of it. You can afford to get a new one after all these years.

If you can’t make space to wear it, find someone who can. Donate it or sell it if you can.

5. Old Sheets and Washcloths

If they’re worn out and especially if you’re not using them, get rid of them. It’s probably time for new ones anyway. You only want a room in your home for high-quality things you can actually use.

What’s Next?

Of course, those are only a couple of things you can do to declutter your life. Go ahead, go through your things and get rid of all that excess. With less clutter in your home, your mind will be clearer for what lies ahead. Once you’re done with that, you can be ready to get things into storage.
