Declutter 101: Pantry

Welcome to the final installment of my declutter series. I’ve been cleaning out my home the entire month of January and it’s been great to let go of items that I no longer use. I look back at what I gave away and a lot of it was purchased on impulse or I just kept it for some sentimental reason. I found that in downsizing that I can actually make use of what I have and if I choose to add, I have space. Check out my previous installments below:

Declutter 101: Handbags & Accessories

My handbags and accessories are an area, similar to my pantry, that I’ve hesitated to declutter. I’ve had no problem getting rid of things in my closet, but when it coms to my handbags especially, it’s difficult. A lot of my jewelry from Forever 21, H&M, etc., has been accumulated over the years, but I don’t really wear it. The main purpose of this declutter was to keep what I absolutely loved, donate what I didn’t use, and to toss any broken jewelry that I had hoarded.

I would buy based off trend instead of staple pieces that I could mix and match and get the most out of my wardrobe. First, check out the other parts of this Declutter 101 series below:

Declutter 101: Nail Polish

Welcome to another edition of my ‘Declutter 101’ series. My first installment was decluttering my fragrances and while I wanted to combine all go my beauty together into one post, I felt that separating them would be more be more beneficial. I hoard in different areas more so than others based off various reasons. I hoarded fragrances just to have them on hand always making an excuse of what I’d do with the scents I didn’t like. Then there’s my nail polish, which will be covered in this post, that I have been dwindling down for years. Check out my two previous collections below:

Welcome to my declutter 101 series here on the blog. This is a special feature for the month of January as I declutter my belonging differently than I usually do.
