This list of 365 things to declutter will give you loads of ideas and inspiration if you want to know what to get rid of in your home and life this year. You’ll be free of unwanted stuff, and have more time to lead the life you want before you know it – and that’s got to be good, right!

Pink Peonies and Eucalyptus behind the title wording "365 Easy things to Declutter from your Home and Life This Year"

Yes – 365 unique items to declutter from all aspects of your home and life.

It took me a while to think of them all – seriously – hours! – but I’m totally happy with the final cut, as they are all things that will make a difference – big AND small.

365 – of course – is the number of days in a year – so if you declutter one thing a day over the year, then by the end of it you’ll be 365 things (at least!!) lighter.

Sounds good, doesn’t it!

Of course – the list is HUGE – and so I have given some thought on how to make things easier for you to tackle (as always!) – because one long checklist would be pretty overwhelming!

What I decided is this:

This post will be the hub for the entire list – so you can see everything in one place (and tackle things as and when you want to) – BUT – each month this year I will produce a totally free printable checklist for you to use for that month. I’ll write a post about it, and add it to the Printables Library for you to download.

On each checklist there will be the right number of items for the days in that month, and you’ll be able to print off the checklist and tackle it over that month.

I’ll add links to the months into this post as we go – so you have one place to find everything (these links are at the bottom of the post) – and I can’t wait to see how you get on!

So, for now – let’s get started, shall we…..

By the way – If you like the idea of being told what to declutter, but this list is a little too overwhelming – OR you’d rather get a little extra help and support on your decluttering journey, I can help! I’ve created a totally FREE 30 day Clutter Challenge that I’d love for you to join. Simply SIGN UP HERE and I’ll send you an email each day for 30 days with info of what to declutter. Not only that, but you can also share your progress in the free Facebook OMH HQ group. Over 4000 people have taken this challenge and they’re chatting about it and encouraging each others progress in the group each day – so join up now and I’ll see you there!

#351 – Decorative Cushions that have lost their plumpness (TIP – If you love the cushion then you could re-fill with a feather insert which will give it new life)

#352 – Cards that have no envelope

#353 – More than one diary – you’ll get confused and double book if you have more than one – you’re only one person!

#354 – Excess loose change – gather it up and get it to the bank

#355 – Artwork that doesn’t make you happy

#356 – Scraps of wrapping paper that won’t wrap anything

#357 – Anything in your bins around the house!

#358 – Used candles where the wick has worn down and can’t be lit again

#359 – Any plastic carrier bags you are stockpiling (20 is probably plenty!)

#360 – Your bucket list – schedule a couple of things into the next 6 months that you’ve always wanted to do

#361 – Diffusers that have been used up

#362 – Presents that you are keeping so as not to offend the giver – re-gift to someone who will love it – you will have said thank you for the gift and have appreciated the thought, but if it’s not something you love then why keep it. NOTE – Label who gave you what as it would be awful to re-gift to the original giver…..

#363 – Regrets – you can’t change the past, so there’s no point in looking backwards. You are you because of the life you have had so far, so the very best thing to do now is to look forward and focus on what you want your life to look like from this point on.

#364 – Christmas cards that you don’t want to keep (You could re-use the rest and make the front of the cards into tags for next years presents – you then would only need to declutter the back half of the card)

#365 – Christmas presents you bought for people, but never used. I usually have a few spares in case people pop by unexpectedly, or I buy a couple of things over the year and forget I’ve got it for someone specifically so I buy something else (rare, but it happens!) – Why not add them into your present box and give to someone else when the time is right?
