Happy New Year! To start the new year off right, I’m giving you a list of 31 items to to get rid of in January.

Isn’t it amazing how much stuff we accumulate over the holidays? My sock drawer is bursting at the seams. Fortunately that’s the only place that experienced over-abundance…we didn’t end up with too many toys, thank goodness!

Hubby and I didn’t really give each other much for Christmas since we’d made some pretty expensive but worthwhile purchases earlier in the year. I had planned on giving him a subscription to Audible, but he decided he wanted to buy Bitcoin instead. (Don’t say I didn’t try.)

It ended up being very fortunate that we didn’t buy anything since we plan on taking our toddler to Disneyland for her birthday next month and our water heater decided to go out on Christmas Day. Merry Christmas to us! *sarcasm* And that’s why we make sure to have an emergency fund.

Anyway, back to the post-holiday purge…this list consists of no-brainer items to get rid of this month. If you don’t have a lot of time to purge, you can do one category each day, probably during your kids’ naptime.
