Space organisation tips 

Now, she may use the term “throw away,” but don’t worry, she’s not advocating for a trash bonanza. It’s all about recycling or donating stuff if it’s still in good nick. So, what’s on the chopping block for our personal space organisation?

Empty gadget boxes

Let’s face it, that phone or tablet box is never making a comeback. Hang onto any important documents like warranties, then recycle those boxes. No need to clutter up drawers with stuff we’ll never use again.

Old bills

We’ve all got that stash of ancient bills, right? Well, it’s time to let them go. A document shredder will make recycling those old papers a breeze.

Metal hangers

Metal hangers are great for transporting clothes, but they’re not built for long-term closet residency. Plus, they tend to bend out of shape faster than you can say “organize.”

Plastic dry cleaner bags

Those plastic garment bags from the dry cleaner might seem like they’re keeping our clothes pristine, but they could be doing more harm than good. Cartwright suggests giving them the boot to prevent any colour fading.

Old socks and undies

Mismatched socks and worn-out undies have got to go. It’s pointless to hold on to them once they’re no longer in their prime. Besides, it’s always a good idea to refresh our underwear drawer regularly, so we should toss out any damaged goods without hesitation.
