Wondering how to organize summer stuff? Start by paring down what you own. Having fewer things to sort and store makes it a whole lot easier. Here is a quick list of 15 categories and suggestions of what you can declutter today! Keep the good stuff that you use, share/donate the good stuff you won’t use, and toss/dump the junk today:
- Summer serving ware – oversize platter with a sandcastle printed on it that you never use
- Kitchen cooking gadgets – the lemon squeezer that you say you’re going to use, but never do
- Summer shoes – sandals, shoes, and flip flops that hurt your feet to wear
- Summer makeup – the bronzer or highlighter you bought thinking it was a great idea
- Bright nail polish – fluorescent shades that only work when you are on vacation
- Cover-ups and bathing suits – the ones you never wear
- Pool and beach towels – you can only use so many, share extras with a local pet shelter
- Beach bags – the ones with a broken strap, or just excess quantities
- Summer accessories – broken sunglasses and hats or visors you never wear
- Outdoor toys and games – the cracked ladder ball game with missing pieces
- Outdoor furniture – the bent folding chair you can’t sit in safely
- Outdoor décor – the broken strand of outdoor café lights
- Grilling gadgets – the fish grilling basket you have but don’t like fish
- Vacation souvenirs – the broken seashell necklace
- Summer décor – the faded lighthouse throw pillow with a torn seam
