Day 5: Decluttering "A" 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 A!  You can declutter anything you want that begins with A.  I'll share some ideas and you can choose any of them that resonate with you, or declutter your own ideas that begin with A.  Join in the decluttering fun!

Decluttering Ideas That Begin With The Letter A

Here are a few items or areas you may have in your home that you could declutter:

  • Antique trunks
  • Antique anything
  • Already used things
  • Ancient comforters
  • Apple-themed decor
  • Alcohol (stuff you know you'll never use... this isn't a free pass to drink all day LOL!)
  • Atlases
  • supplies/equipment related to Activities you or your family members no longer do
  • Arm chairs
  • Armoires
  • stuffed Animals
  • Artificial flowers
  • Artificial anything
  • your Attic
  • an Alcove
  • All the things in a specific category you no longer use
  • Accessories
  • Alumni magazines
  • Appliances
  • Antibiotics
  • Anti-anything medications
  • Acetaminophen
  • Aprons
  • stuff you have an Abundance of
  • things that aren't Awesome
  • your Automobile
  • Aloe
  • Athletic equipment
  • Athletic awards
  • Audio-visual stuff
  • and if none of those apply then just declutter Anything!

Find a few of these things that you no longer need, use, love, or have the space to store (that's the definition of clutter by the way!) and let them go.
