100 Plus Things To Declutter That You Don’t Need And A Free Printable Checklist

Sometimes when life starts to feel a little rough or overwhelming it’s not necessary the things that are going on. Sometimes it’s the things around you and you may not even realize it. 

Whether your focusing in on the things or not your mind is still absorbing the energy from your environment. Which in turn can affect your mood. 

One of the most beautiful things about minimalism is the tranquility it gives you. You start to learn what you don’t want in your life and learn to say no to things you don’t want. And YES to all the things that make you happy. That bring a smile to your face. That’s what the minimalist journey is about! Living a life you love and freely without the burden of things that don’t make you happy. 

So to help you jumpstart your journey or to just take a little extra off your plate and clear the air so your mind can take a chill pull and relax I’ve put together a list of about 129 things you can declutter right now and you won’t even miss them. 

These things are pretty much just holding up space that you could otherwise be enjoying life with more. So pick a room and go to town!
