Simplify Your Home: 100 Things I Don’t Miss

Simplify your home and life.

During the process of binging my home, I’ve come across a fair share of items that I just realistically know I don’t need. Items that are broken and I’ve held onto for one reason or another, or items that I purchased on a whim and haven’t used since. I decided to compile a list of items that I am no longer keeping. The reason behind this list is simply because I just do not use these items and do not need them.

Please note: I am not saying anything negative about these items and for anyone who may own one or more of the items below, great, if you love the item and it brings you happiness that is all that matters.

There’s many things I still own, such as a television and a car. Items that bring me joy or items I need for everyday tasks. My goal was only to eliminate the excess, the items I do not use nor need, items that do not bring me happiness or joy, and the items that are just a time waster. Hence my long list does not include everything. 🙂 What could you eliminate?
