Too much clutter is never good for anyone.
If you ever feel like your life is too full of clutter – physically, digitally, and/or even mentally – then maybe it’s time for you to start throwing stuff out!
I’m getting ready to do some spring cleaning and decluttering, so I thought now was a great time to share this post with you guys. But really, you can get rid of these things at any time, of course!
I recommend grabbing two boxes/bags so you can give away or donate the usable items and throw away the rest. (:
