*Repost from 02/07/15 But great ideas are always in style!

It’s been awhile since I’ve posted a “100 List” and my friend (Amazing Amy) pointed out that since it’s the meme of the blog – perhaps it was time to post another one.

We’re post-Christmas, pre-Spring-cleaning, so the focus shifts to clearing clutter from your home.

100 Things You Can Get Rid of Right Now - printable checklist

We all have a tendency to hang on to things “just in case”. “What if I need my iPad box someday?” “What if I decide to hang those pictures again down the road?” Or my classic “What if I run out?” – which leads to the inevitable overstocking of items in your pantry, closet, cupboards, fridge…. For those that are still struggling to decide, consider talking to some storage providers. They can give you your much-needed space and time to decide what to do with your extra stuff.

This is an introductory list – I’m not suggesting you remove all contents of a room and start with a large project. This list will provide you with 100 things that you can easily remove from your home, whether it be by recycling, repurposing, donating or plain old throwing out or even just putting it in self-storage (click here to learn more), that will free up space in both your house and head. However, you may not need a storage solution if you know for definite that you no longer need the clutter that you are currently holding onto. If you live in the relevant area, then you may wish to take a look at a commercial dumpster rental company for further information.

Seriously, 100 things that you can purge and not even notice they’re gone – but feel REALLY good about having gotten rid of.

100 Things to declutter printable pdf

This is doable right?

And having it in a checklist format appeals to my slight OCD-ness. By clearing clutter, recycling, repurposing and donating you’ll feel like you’ve accomplished something much larger than it actually is!

Thank you Amy for the inspiration and for the fabulous design work!

Have fun!
