Home Organization Technique: Know What to Get Rid of

“Zoo”, you tell yourself as you look around your home.

There are stacks of books and newspapers on the floor, your kids’ Legos are everywhere, your spouse’s shoes seem parked on your couch, and more. And you cross your fingers for a magic fix.

Well, sorry to say there’s no such thing as a magic fix for this. There is, however, a home organization technique where all you need to do is to get rid of things.

Here are some of the things that you need to get rid of.

Old Clothes

It’s understandable to want to own so many clothes. The higher the number of clothes you have in your closet, the more options you have when the time comes.

But hoarding clothes comes with the downside of eating up space. If they can no longer fit inside your closet, it’s possible that you’ll find room for them on your chairs.

The result? A disorganized home!

So if you decide to change how your home is, one solution is obvious: get rid of your old clothes.


Before you get rid of the unnecessary cables that are lying around your home, however, you should learn to understand the specifics of certain items. Don’t throw away the cables if you have no idea of their purpose.

For all you know, your spouse might still use it.

On the other hand, if you’re 100% sure you don’t need a certain cable, then toss it into the trash!

Excess Furniture

Then be ready to get rid of the excess furniture.

You can sell them, leave them outside your house, or give them away. What you do is your call as long as they’re getting out of your place.

If you’re hesitant to get rid of excess furniture because you once spent a lot of money on them, start thinking differently.

The thing is, they occupy a lot of space. And most of the time, these items are just there as decorations. They can be there only for you and for guests to admire – and nothing more.

So if there’s a table, chair, or steel rack that you no longer use, be practical and say goodbye to it as soon as possible.

The Bottom Line

Having loads of items in your home can be an advantage. You can easily get your hands on them whenever you need them.

Then again, it’s also likely that many of your belongings are only clogging up your place. In this case, you need to let them go.
