31 Items To Purge From Your Home And Life In March - incl Free Printable

Welcome to the 3rd of my 12 part series of free decluttering printables this year – all based around my popular post – 365 things to declutter from your home and life this year.

Decide for yourself how you’d prefer to get things done using each monthly black and white 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 March’s declutter (the first for Spring), shall we….

Hope you enjoy!

31 Things to declutter in March

#1 – Evening wear you won’t wear again or that you have no need for. Ask yourself honestly how many dressy evening do’s you go to, and whether you will ever wear the same thing again (often as women we go to evening do’s with the same group of people, and so like to wear a different outfit ideally each time)

#2 – Apps on your phone that waste your time. I recently got rid of some of the games on my phone that seem to help me lose hours in a day when I let myself be distracted….. If they aren’t there, then the temptation goes with it.

#3 – Anything waiting to be mended – spend an hour getting it done (DIY or clothes).

#4 – Digital books (Kindle) that you’ve read and don’t want any longer. Whether the clutter is physical or digital – it can still weigh you down….

#5 – Excess furniture (clear the room a bit and let it all breathe!)

#6 – Shop Catalogues. Everything you need to look at can now be found online really easily. You’ll also see any sales, any out of stock items, and any additions – so you’ll always have the most up to date catalogue online which makes for easier shopping.

#7 – Any earrings that don’t have their partner

#8 – Out of date vitamins

#9 – Coats that you never wear anymore

#10 – Computer games that the children have grown out of. Get them to swap with friends, or at a games store. In the future as well, why not consider looking in your local library, as some will have games to rent which can be a great way to see if you like a game, and to get more for your money without boredom setting in.

#11 – Anything that is past it’s best in the freezer. Contrary to popular belief – things don’t last forever once frozen, they will still deteriorate, albeit at a slower pace. Get used to rotating what’s in your freezer so this is less likely to happen in the future.

#12 – Numbers in your Phones PhoneBook – delete any numbers in your mobile phone that you don’t use anymore

#13 – Kids artwork (take photos or scan instead so you still have copies but less bulk) – only keep really special ones.

#14 – Old magazines. Why not look at an online service for magazines such as Readly instead of physical magazines – this alleviates clutter brilliantly.

#15 – Clothes genres that you don’t use any longer (For example – work clothes when you now work from home or are a stay at home mum, maternity clothes if you’ve had your family now etc…)

#16 – Your bathroom scales – You really don’t need these in your life….

#17 – Gloves without a partner

#18 – Anything on your bedside table that doesn’t need to be there. We often become blind to what’s right in front of us – so take a good look, and only keep what *really* needs to be there.

#19 – Old bikes / scooters / trikes etc….

#20 – Ironing waiting to be done – declutter that pile by spending 15 minutes doing some!

#21 – Winter clothes that you didn’t wear, or that are worn out

#22 – Anything in the visors / mirror in the front of the car that shouldn’t be there (you can stuff quite a lot there if you try!)

#23 – Items on your cleaning schedule that someone else could do (delegate)

#24 – Out of date pet food / snacks

#25 – Hats that you don’t wear

#26 – Paint for rooms that you have since redecorated a different colour. When I look at the paint cans in my garage, I’m always amazed to find paint from years ago hiding there!

#27 – Scarves that you don’t wear

#28 – Subscriptions or memberships you never use

#29 – Old computers (take care to destroy the hard drive first)

#30 – Scratched DVDs or CDs

#31 – Plugin air fresheners that lost their scent a while ago
