Things You Need to Get Rid of in 2018


Alexia Dellner in Pure Wow recently listed 30 things we need to dump as we begin 2018. I have reduced her list for our use.


  1. Clean out and donate old clothes that have not been worn in years.
  2. Dump old pens that no longer work.
  3. Recycle all your old chargers and cords for devices you no longer use.
  4. Jettison all of the questionable leftovers in the freezer and fridge.
  5. Put old greeting cards in the recycle bin, unless they have glitter. No one wants it.
  6. The collection of plastic bags needs to go.
  7. Move threadbare towels to the rag bin.
  8. Drop off old eyeglasses in one of those Lion’s Club boxes for re-use in the world.
  9. Purge that junk drawer of old batteries, etc.
  10. Cut the hidden clutter under beds and in closet corners.


This works for our homes, but many of these suggestions are good for our church offices and closets. A fresher environment encourages our desire for a new beginning in the New Year.
