40 Things to Throw Out In The Next 40 Days

Do you ever find yourself decluttering your life, and before you know it 3 hours have passed and your still sorting things out!? No? Just me? Okay…

I have prepared a list of things I generally find myself throwing away, so if you’re nothing like me, you can do it over 40 days (but be warned… some jobs are a lot bigger than others!)

TIP: make a throw away & donate pile… Donate things that are still in good condition that others may benefit from!


  1. Unmatched anything (socks, earrings, anything that has lost its pair)
  2. Broken or scratched sunglasses (or any glasses for that matter)
  3. Worn out bra’s & underwear
  4. Scarves, beanies & gloves you never wear
  5. Well worn shoes that are falling apart
  6. Old t-shirts
  7. Anything you haven’t worn in the past year (definitely donate the things still in good condition!)
  8. Old wallets & bags you don’t use
  9. Old bedding, including duvet covers, sheets and pillows
  10. Jeans that don’t fit right


  1. Out of date makeup products
  2. Worn out makeup brushes
  3. Out of date skin care & hair care products
  4. Expired medications
  5. Dried out nail polish
  6. Stained, frayed or holey towels, wash clothes & dish towels
  7. Stretched out hair ties
  8. Makeup bags you never use

  1. Unsubscribe to store emails you never shop at
  2. Delete junk mail
  3. Delete music you don’t enjoy
  4. Delete bad photos, screenshots & duplicates
  5. Delete unused apps

Don’t you feel so much more refreshed, clean & organised now?!? Let me know what else you like to throw out!

Lots of love,
