WEBE Wellness: Decluttering For The New Year

Well, if you were snowed in a bit today, you could have used the time to take stock of things that you don’t need anymore. You might have some things hanging around the house that you can get rid of that will take a load off your mind, immediately helping your physical and mental well-being.

The new year is the perfect time to get rid of old documents – bank and credit card statements should be shredded, but also get rid of old takeout menus, junk mail, and expired coupons that you stuck in a drawer and forgot about.

Look through your cabinets – Tupperware you can’t find the lid for, or chipped drinking glasses should all go.

Open the fridge – it’s a new year, so any condiments that have 2021 (or older) can go right in the trash.

Look through your closets – clothes that are worn out, don’t fit, or was a gift you’ve never used can all be donated – if you’ve gone more than a year without wearing it, you probably don’t need it.

And finally look in the junk drawer – pens that don’t have ink, dead batteries, out of date phone chargers – you don’t need them.
