    1. Awww thank you! It took me good half an hour to make it look like that. My perfectionism just did not allow me to publish it without making sure it's in order. :) Iga x

  3. I love your list so much. I am guilty of having SO MANY of the things on this list.

  4. Haha, some of these items I definitely have more of. Like single socks. I have a pile and they drive me crazy but, I have cleaned several areas and even though I havent found them I know they still exist! I would love to walk around and grab and get rid of 77 items but it wouldn't do much damage but I guess it's a start. Such a simple action towards improvements. Too many people in my house equals too much clutter maybe we all need to ditch 77 items!

    1. I am sure you will be able to slowly declutter your space from things that are not compatible with your lifestyle anymore.

      I was shocked when I took only 10 minutes from my day to go through box with medicines. More than a half products inside expired! The oldest one expired in 2015!

  5. I would never have the idea to do this article nevertheless it is really interesting and I think i have half of those things in my home and I don't really need them all and we keep things at home just to keep them.
    we can give them to person in need, thank you

  6. This is a great list - I could probably go through just this list and clear lots of clutter from my house! Except for the "books you don't want to read" part ... I just can't believe that's a thing. ;-)

    1. Hahaha I was thinking exactly the same thing until I managed to gather so many books that I 'should' read for University yet found them extremely uninspiring and outdated.

    1. Thank you Divya. External factors can have such a power over how we feel internally. It always surprises me how good I feel after seeing effects of cleaning.

  15. My husband and I are downsizing to a smaller house in five months and we really need to decclutter and pare down our possessions. I am more than ready to do it, I'm ready to live simply, but my husband is a bit of a pack rat and resistant.

    1. I would suggest to sort out your things first. Your husband might be or might not be ready to declutter yet. However your enthusiasm will definitely be taken positively and who knows he might ask you for help to declutter his possessions.

  17. One thing I can add to the list as a traveler is the souvenir and trinkets I gathered from friends and my own travels. Try taking a picture of them while writing down the memories around how and why you acquired them. It's a great way to relive the memories and experiences while decluttering your house.
