60 Things to Toss Out in the Next 60 Days

60_Things_In_60_Days_Spring_Cleaning_1

Hello, Magnolias.

I have a love/hate relationship with spring cleaning. I love getting organized and feeling like my space is refreshed, ready for the start of a new season but I hate the whole process. Let’s face it, trying to tackle everything in a matter of a weekend or a single day is rough. That’s why I’ve complied this awesome list of 60 things to toss out (or donate, sell, giveaway, recycle, etc.) in the next 60 days. That’ll take us right through to April 9th, just in time for Spring to be in full swing.

The list ranges from tossing out old Cosmo magazines you’ve got collecting dust (I’m totally guilty), chucking worn out bras (you know, the ones that poke you in the side or with the strap that always slip off your shoulder), donating all those knick-knacks crowding your bookcase (the perfect formula is maybe 75% books, 25% tchotchkes), even deleting all those random screenshots of Kate Spade bags you send your best friend (or is that just me?).

Wanna take the challenge? I definitely am! It’s all about refreshing and renewing. So if you’re up for the challenge use the hashtag #Toss60 on Instagram and Twitter so we all can follow along. Don’t forget, you can mix and match. Do #1 then #59 or do all the odd numbered items in one day, it’s all up to you!

If you want, you can even get a printable version of this list right here!

I’m ready to get this started. In fact, all the wrapping paper littering my closet floor is tossed in the bin so watch out, broken lights, you’re next!

How do you spring clean? Are you going to try the challenge? Let me know in the comments below or tweet me!

  1. I laughed really hard at the Kate Spade screenshots thing, because you are definitely not alone there! I’m such a picture hoarder (totally making this a term) and think that that’s where I’ll start on the “tossing out” list! There are also so many things on here that I never really think of tossing out, but definitely should, so thanks for this!

    1. Yes! I’m so glad I’m not alone! My bestie and I spend hours stressing over the Kate Spade surprise sale last night. I definitely wanted to make a list of unconventional things to get rid of so I’m glad you found it helpful. Thanks for reading! xx

  2. I am no longer certain what the site is called but the accept donations of gift cards (any amount, so if you have $.37 left on something that you are not likely to use, it can be donated) and turns them over to military families. It may be a small amount, but if several small amounts get donated think what that could do for someone in need.

  3. Its always a great idea to declutter our lives with unused or unneeded things and I’m so glad you also mentioned donating or recycling: one woman’s trash is another’s treasure! Paper items can be recycled in most areas; animal shelters usually welcome frayed towels and sheets; shelters and senior centers may love to have your old books and magazines; Goodwill takes unwearable clothing for the purpose of making rags; some of our more crafty friends can use things you’d never imagine for their projects like old CDs and unmatched earrings. Just some ideas before tossing into the bin!

    1. You gave some great donation and recycle suggestions. I never thought of books and magazines for a senior centers! And as a crafty person, I normally save the old CDs and unmatched earrings for craft projects, but haven’t done them in a few years. Maybe its time to pass them on to some other crafty person. Thanks!

  4. I just want to throw most of my stuff (that is not wanted) into the trash!
    The step of donating, selling or recycling is where I get hung up.

  5. Do this and I guarantee you will start to feel better! I started two years ago and have gotten rid of so many things. Good reusable items can go to any thrift store, items that are extra special to you give away to someone who will appreciate it as much as you did, for itmes you no longer use find a single parent, they are usually in need of something you may have.
    I have totally changed the way I shop too. Please also tell your friends to not buy you clutter..I like giving usable practical gifts,
    Thank you for this list. I will use it too,

  6. This post needs a resurgence. I can’t believe how incredibly relevant this list is to me, and probably to most women/moms. Nice list. I’ve already started (it is NY 2017 after all) on this list with sunglasses, makeup bags, shoes, candles, jeans and pillows! Great Post, thank you
