Day 27: Decluttering "W" Things {Decluttering From A To Z}

This month I'm hosting the Decluttering From A To Z challenge.  It's a fun way to help you declutter items in your home that you may not have thought of decluttering.

If you've missed any posts you can find them all here.

Today we're decluttering items that begin with the letter W!  You can declutter anything you want that begins with W.  I'll share some ideas and you can choose any of them that resonate with you, or declutter your own ideas that begin with W.  Join in the decluttering fun!

Here are all the posts in this series!


  1. I tend to hang on to "worn out" things cause I use things for a long time before trashing or recycling them, especially shoes. I'm sure I have 2-3 pairs of tennis shoes I could donate right now!

    1. It's good to use things as long as possible Elaina. But when they're too worn out to use then it's time to let them go! Good luck with your worn out shoes :)

  2. Great list! Clothes are on my list to purge and sort this month.

    1. Thanks Kim! I find I need to purge clothes a lot, but especially in the fall and spring when I change out our clothes. Good luck purging your clothes!
