11 everyday objects in our home to throw in the trash canBy Vika https://pictolic.com/en/article/11-everyday-objects-in-our-home-to-throw-in-the-trash-can
We all love it when it's warm and cozy at home, and every corner has its own mood and character. To create such an atmosphere, we use numerous interior items and nice little things. However, there comes a time when there is no space left on the shelves, tables, or balcony. And you have to move the same things from one place to another to make space.
Pictolic decided to add a list of things that are easier to part with than to find a place for them.
1. Fluorescent lamps and figurines.
Ceramic, plastic, and wood figurines or lamps that run on batteries and are designed to decorate the interior, as a rule, take up only space on the table. The fact of the matter is that we usually don't use recessed lighting as often as we planned when we buy these décor items.
2. Chinese souvenirs.
Unusual souvenirs of Chinese origin. We bought them with glowing eyes and childish delight, but after a couple of weeks, we just stopped noticing them. Now, while cleaning, you have to remove dust from these purchases or move them from one place to another.
3. Old spoons and forks.
A whole bunch of old aluminum or steel spoons and forks stored in one ancient container. We no longer remember the origin of each of them. Perhaps we received some of them for housewarming 15 years ago, or maybe we planned to use others when we went hiking.
4. Another bag with plastic bags.
Yes, exactly "one more". Every day the number of plastic products increases, and there comes a time when you have to fold them into each other. And it goes in a circle. When we go shopping, we usually hear: "Do you need a package?" And every time this happens, we think of a heap that sits somewhere at home, taking up space.
5. Souvenir candlesticks.
Porcelain or metal candlesticks designed for individual candles. They look beautiful on the window and on the first day after purchase. Over time, this design element turns into another dust collector.
6. Empty perfume bottles.
The pleasant scent of new perfume always cheers up, and the bottle of an unusual shape pleases the eye. But at some point, there are quite a few of these bottles on the shelf, and there is not enough space for everyone. In these situations, the easiest way is to send them to the trash can rather than trying to neatly rearrange them on the shelves.
7. Newspapers and magazines.
Numerous magazines about beauty and coziness in the home and a whole bunch of newspapers with a TV guide - all this gradually accumulates on the balcony or by the bed.
8. Old computer monitors.
Modern technology has taken a big step forward, steadily displacing old computers from everyday use. Many people have an old monitor with a picture tube in a closet or on a balcony - it is heavy, voluminous, and collects a lot of dust. And the need to have it completely disappeared, so you can safely sell or dispose of it.
9. Cardboard boxes from household appliances.
Every time we unpack a new home appliance, we say: "We do not throw away the box as long as there is a guarantee." A few years later, it turns out that no one threw away this package.
10. Rolls of wallpaper after renovation.
Home renovation is always a long and painstaking process, after which a large number of unused materials remain. We try to buy replacement wallpapers to make sure they last. And often, after we have finished renovating the walls, whole rolls of wallpaper remain intact and take up a lot of space.
