  • Pantry items

Discard anything expired and donate anything you won’t use in the next three months to your local food bank. Having all of your cereal, pasta and canned goods visible will help you know and use what you have.

  • Books

Keep anything with sentimental value or that you can commit to reading this year. The rest of your book collection can be turned into dollars at a second-hand bookstore. Fire up your library card and consider investing in an e-reader such as a Kindle or an iPad.

Replace your CDs with a space-saving external hard drive. With your music collection available at the click of a mouse, you’ll enjoy it more and dust it less.

  • Photos

Scan loose photos and store them digitally. When it’s time to make a photo book, you’ll have a fresh crop of vintage photos to show off. If you don’t have a scanner or want to save yourself some time, you can use a service like scanmyphotos.com to scan them for you.

  • Skinny Jeans

You’ll be that size again, but it’s no help being taunted by closets overflowing with clothes you can’t wear today. Just keep what fits and looks great on you now. Realistically, when you’re back to skinny-jeans size you’ll be celebrating with a new wardrobe.

  • Cleaning Products

Keep the multipurpose cleaners but safely dispose of the specialty and duplicate cleaners. You’ll find it easier to stay on top of soap scum and dust bunnies when you’re just toting around a few bottles and rags.

  • Dishware

Give away anything mismatched for a clean look to your dishware and glassware. Having fewer dishes will help you stay on top of loading and unloading the dishwasher.

  • Vehicle

If you have a car you only use occasionally, consider becoming a member of an auto cooperative or ZipCar. You will save money, space in the garage and time: no more oil changes, maintenance appointments or car washes on your to-do list.

  • Exercise equipment

Sell the treadmill you currently use as a clothing rack and use the proceeds to sign up for a boot camp or running group. You’re more likely to stick to a workout regime with your name on a class list and an instructor waiting for you. Visit Craigslist.org to sell used equipment.

  • TV

Get rid of the television in your bedroom and enjoy more sleep, sex and conversation. Bonus: reduced energy consumption and one less thing to dust.

  • Wedding Dress

It looked amazing on you but will it do the same for your daughter 30 years after you wore it? Styles change and the majority of wedding dresses are only ever worn once. You’ve got the photos and the memories: let someone else give up the closet space.

  • Childrens clothing

Stop doing the laundry until someone complains they don’t have anything clean to wear. Whatever is still hanging in the closet can be donated — it’s not being worn at your house anyway.

  • Kitchen gadgets

Are your kitchen drawers drowning in never-used Bundt pans and apple corers? Consider gifting your rarely used kitchen gadgets to a friend that will use them. You can always borrow that culinary torch back should you decide to finally make crème brulee.

  • Camping gear

If you haven’t unrolled your sleeping bag in five years, it’s time to say goodbye to it. Life with kids changes things, and it’s common to prefer hotels and cabins over tents when you’re toting a toddler. Sell the camping stove and the rest of your gear at a garage sale!

  • Cosmetics

Keep items you use daily and weekly and toss expired and experimental make-up and creams. A dramatic or new evening make-up look can be had from a demo at the MAC counter. All the clear space under your sink will inspire you to just buy what you use.

Get some office space back by donating your old computer to a charitable organization that refurbishes them. If you’ve recently upgraded your cell phone, recycle or sell your old one. Cell Phones for Soldiers is an organization that will recycle your phone for a good cause.

  • Furniture

Once you’ve pared down all your media, toys and clothing, you’ll probably find that you don’t need all three bookcases or that extra side table. Remove the extra furniture and you’ll find your home easier to clean and more enjoyable to relax in. Try Craigslist to give or sell it.
