35 Things Yo Get Rid Of Right Now

New Year is here and many of us see it as a time to start fresh, improve ourselves and simplify our lives. I firmly believe that our belongings do one of two things for our mind and physical space: bring joy or create clutter. Start your year by taking a look around your space and get rid of anything that doesn’t bring you joy or serve a purpose. Throw it away or donate it. Don’t think. Just do it. It will feel good and you’ll never miss it! I promise. Here’s a list to get you started:
