Week 29 | Packaging | 52 Weeks to Downsize & Minimalize

Packaging takes up a great deal of space in a typical home we declutter and organize. Think about the large cardboard box smaller packages come in when you shop in bulk, the extra plastic paper towels come in, the space wasted in a box of tea that only has 2 packets remaining.

How To Find Extra Space In Your Home

Excess packaging creates additional steps to get what you need and is not as aesthetically pleasing as individually displaying items on a shelf, in a cabinet, or on a counter.

This week, free whatever you can from the excess packaging that confines it. Here are ideas:

• Dry cleaner clothes from the plastic
• Multi-pack bottles from the plastic shrink wrap
• Snacks bars from the box
• Oranges from the bag

Downsize and minimalize cardboard, paper, and plastic packaging from your life this week. Please recycle. Before you know it, you are going to have space where you forgot you even had free space in the past!
