Easy checklist (totally FREE as well!) of 31 simple items to declutter from your home and life in July. Why not use this month to declutter one thing each day from your home and life. Get things sorted, one step at a time, and enjoy a more clutter free home.
This is the seventh part of my 12 part series of free decluttering printables this year (can you believe it!) – all based around the popular post – 365 things to declutter from your home and life this year.
You can choose how you do things with each monthly declutter checklist (which you can grab NOW in the Printables Library). Either do it all on one day in a blitz session, or take it slowly and declutter one item a day on the date the checklist suggests.
It really depends on what time you have available, and how you like to do things (as always!).
Without further ado, let’s get on with the list of simple items to declutter in July, shall we….
Hope you enjoy!
31 SIMPLE ITEMS TO DECLUTTER IN JULY
#1 – Finished puzzle books. Save paper next time and maybe download a couple of games on your phone instead.
#2 – Open tabs on your browser (phone and/or computer) – create bookmarks instead if you REALLY need to keep them, but having all those tabs open will slow down the machine.
#3 – Any clothes you have too many identical items of. How many black jumpers do you really need?!
#4 – Any gadget that you can do the same job with something else you own (for example – you have a grater but you also have a small grater for zesting only).
#5 – Balls & inflatables with un-mendable punctures.
#6 – Anything in the car door storage areas that shouldn’t be there. I always seem to find all sorts lurking in these areas that have been forgotten about, because they are so easy to drop things in when you’re busy.
#7 – Pet toys past their best (over chewed etc…).
#8 – Any duplicate hair styling equipment
#9 – Specialist tea/coffee you never drink
#10 – Broken tools or garden equipment
#11 – Lipsticks you can’t apply properly because they’ve almost finished…. (unless you’re willing to use a lip brush and have one already).
#12 – Duplicate physical photos – Unless there’s a very specific need for having more than one copy. If they are photos you can gift to someone then that would be a great idea to save wasting them.
#13 – Clothes related to a hobby you no longer do (ski kit, sports kit, hiking kit, dance clothes etc…)
#14 – Bulbs that don’t fit any lights in your house
#15 – Jewellery you never wear and that has no value
#16 – Shower mats that you never use
#17 – Old table cloths that you never use
#18 – Duplicates in your stationery drawer – you don’t need more than one pencil sharpener!
#19 – Ornaments that you are sick of dusting!
#20 – Duplicates in your tool box
#21 – Hair pins that have been bent out of shape
#22 – Excess baking trays / saucepans etc… in the kitchen
#23 – Any hair styling equipment that you don’t use
#24 – Dead outside plants
#25 – Books for hobbies you don’t do any more
#26 – Any old loyalty cards in your purse that you no longer need/use. Simply cut them up to ensure you can dispose of them securely.
TIP – Why not add all your cards that you use to an app instead of carrying them around? This declutters your purse even more.
#27 – Craft items that are no good any longer (lost their stick, crayons that don’t work etc…)
#28 – Books you have read and have no intention of reading again
#29 – Throws that you don’t use.
#30 – School related items for the previous year that aren’t relevant any longer.
#31 – Overgrown trees and bushes – Have a good cut back and see the difference in your garden. It’s truly amazing what a couple of hours can do!

…By the way – although this declutter checklist is a fantastic one to follow if you like working by yourself, you may be someone who likes to have extra help and support to make sure you get things done.
