40 Easy Things to Declutter

One of the biggest problems I encountered when Kevin and I first wanted to get rid of excess stuff in our house was where to start. We looked around and were just overwhelmed. I've figured out like many things in life you really just need to start!

I've pulled together a list of 40 easy things to declutter and get rid of right away. The past year every now and then I'll look at the list and make sure I don't have any of these hanging around. What an easy item you always make sure to get out of your home?
