Paul Michael, writing for personal finance blog Wise Bread, came up with a list of 25 items he believes you can toss. Here are a few from the list:

  1. Contents of the junk drawer
  2. Clothing and shoes you haven’t worn in the last 12-18 months
  3. Unread books
  4. Expired medicines and Vitamins
  5. (Orphaned) power cords
  6. Spices (they generally only last a couple of years)
  7. Old underwear, socks and bras
  8. Dated technology, including old phones
  9. Perfumes and colognes

What sorts of things do you think you could stand to part with to keep your home a little less cluttered? Let us know in the comments.
