You don’t need a house filled with souvenirs

It’s fun to gather souvenirs from different trips. But at some point, all they do is collect dust without serving a purpose. Some pieces are fun to keep out, but otherwise, be judicious with your decor.

Homemade can trump mass-produced gifts

Sometimes looking around the house can help you use supplies that are just lying there. Not only that, but it adds a more personal touch to making gifts for people rather than purchasing them.

Tupperware and other reusable containers are still a good idea

They’re practical and far more useful than many other options. Just make sure you have a good storage system for them. Just keep in mind that you don’t need enough to open your own store.

It’s not the worst thing to have too many linens

After all, one does need to change the sheets every so often. But do you need multiple sets with different thread counts, colors, and seasonal motifs? Some would say yes, but the truth is that you don’t need an entire linens section in your closet.

How many candles do you need? 

Yes, they smell good and they do look good if you know how to place them. But in all seriousness, you don’t need a stockpile of candles unless you live somewhere that loses power regularly. Even then you don’t need your own candle emporium.

Do you need one of everything in your garage? 

Outdoor equipment is good to have since being prepared is smart. But you don’t need to buy out the REI or sporting goods stores. Keep it simple and keep your garage and yard free of clutter.

Workout gear should be purchased as needed

Check online to see how many people are trying to unload workout equipment they figured out wasn’t needed. Focus on keeping what you require to work out and don’t worry about the rest. It’s too expensive and takes up too much space.

Party favors accumulate quickly

Unless you’re building another Party City store or something similar, you don’t need unlimited party favors. These things can get awkward and fill up cabinets quickly if you’re not careful so plan around holidays and social gatherings carefully and then get rid of the excess if there is any.

Bathroom accessories aren’t always needed

Granted, you might not want your bathroom to look bare, but it doesn’t need to look like your grandma’s bathroom overnight. Keep things safe and simple, it’s possible and it’s better than tripping over multiple bathmats.

Collectibles are great but they’re also dust collectors

I get it, people love what they love. But when it becomes little more than clutter it’s time to take stock and put a few things away. The result of paring down collectibles is amazing.

Sports memorabilia is fun, but minimizing it is a good idea

Cheer on your favorite teams, no one is saying you shouldn’t. But the thought that less is more applies in a big way here. You can hang a flag, a pennant, or something simple, and still be a superfan.

When your bed has more pillows than bed…

Many of us have likely seen people who have multiple blankets and pillows that don’t see a lot of use. It’s a good idea to prepare for something, but if you’ve bought out the blanket section of a Bed Bath and Beyond it’s fair to say that you’ve gone a little too far.
