I'm an organised mum, these are the 20 things you need to chuck NOW if you want to be clutter free this year

January 3, 2022

THERE'S nothing quite like starting a new year with a massive clean out, ridding your home of unwanted items that have accumulated over the past 12 months or more.

But if you don't know where to start, organised mum-of-two Steph Pase has revealed the 20 household items you need to bin asap which will help declutter your home.

While many people might go years before doing a "cleanse", the Australian mum, who is known for her handy household tips and tricks,says she does it every three months.

On her website, Just Another Mummy Blog, she wrote: "De-cluttering your home can be super overwhelming, and I know one problem most people have is worrying about possibly regretting items they have culled later on."

But, she added, there are 20 things you will never regret, or even miss, when you get rid of them – particularly now in 2022.

Among the items to ditch, stat, are DVDs and videos (because, well, who uses them these days), coat hangers you're not using and dead batteries.


And don't forget about that pile of mismatched socks you've been collecting, in hope you'll one day find the missing pair.

Chances are, you won't, ever, so get rid of them, now.

Steph also suggested raiding your kitchen and get rid of expired spices, old receipts and menus you've collected.

As for your wardrobes, shoe boxes are not needed, so chuck them, as well askids' clothes that no longer fit.

"All of these are pesky items living in your home that you can get rid of with no regrets later on!" Steph said.


The 20 items Steph says to ditch now

  • DVDs/Videos
  • Coat hangers not in use
  • Broken Toys/missing pieces
  • Mismatched socks
  • Broken crafts
  • Broken stationery
  • Dead Batteries
  • Old Makeup/hair accessories
  • Old Broken jewellery
  • Expired spices
  • Tech accessories and boxes
  • Broken appliances
  • Clothes with holes
  • Old sheets you don't use
  • Old Scripts/medications
  • Old receipts
  • Old gift vouchers/menus
  • Shoe boxes
  • Unused gifts
  • Kids' clothes that don't fit

By ditching these items, you will create far more space throughout the home making everything look tidy.

Fans of the organised mum agreed with her items to cull list, particularly odd socks as we ALL have those.

One woman said: "Looking to start your 2022 off feeling cleansed? Pro tip: get all of those pesky socks that don’t seem to have a mate and throw them in the bin."

Others were more keen on tackling their spice drawer and wardrobe, with some saying it was particularly rewarding ridding your closet of unused coat hangers.
