5 items to throw away before the start of Summer!
Summer’s coming and its finally time to feel free again.
Do net let your unused household items to hold you back from making new summer purchases this year.
When our responsibilities consume us, it’s normal for clutter and unnecessary items to build up and take up just too much space.
Some of the items that are likely to take up space are boxes, supermarket bags, and old cleaning and health and beauty supplies.
When it comes to health and beauty supplies, you must pay attention to expiration dates. Especially when it comes to sunscreen.
Expired sunscreen isn’t just consuming space, it is less affective on your skin.
Here are 5 items to get started with on your summer cleanout.
Side note: these items will likely lead you to more items you can get rid of.
- Cardboard Boxes
While you may believe saving cardboard boxes for a later occasion is a smart idea, it’s just a waste of space. It’s definitely a smart idea to keep a box or two handy, but having boxes stacked like the Tower of Babel is just not needed. Use the Spring time to break these down and clear out room for summer.
- Expired Sunscreen
Did you know sunscreen has a lifespan of three years?
If your bottle has been chillin’ inside your cabinet for longer than this, it’s time to dispose.
- Damaged Food Containers
Logically, a damaged food container cannot properly contain your food, so it’s garbage. In the summer time, it’s most important to have containers in good condition. This will help your food stay fresh, and avoid any soiling from the summer heat and humidity. Plastic containers get worn over time, so it is definitely a normal thing if they are worn down.
- Winter Clothes / Blankets
By default, items for the Winter are thicker, and heavier, to help us fight the cold. When summer comes around, these items are definitely not needed. Whether it’s your sheets or clothes, your Winter items are bulky and taking up too much space.
- Last Summer’s Treats
A freezer doesn’t preserve things forever, even if you may believe this to be true, it’s not. If your freezer still has popsicles, hotdogs, hamburgers, and other frozen goods, it’s time to dispose. In addition, check your fridge for last summer’s condiments. It’s easy to forget about opened relish and other items, but they are no longer good!
While you may feel hesitant to dispose of these items, it’s truly for the best. Every season you have the opportunity to start fresh, and at the end of the day, will make you feel at ease.
So, what are you waiting for?
