Using expired makeup is never a good idea, no matter how expensive. You can get serious infections/allergic reactions, which is so NOT cute!

Old Clothes

You know that skirt you keep holding on to because you know you are going to wear it 'one day'??? Let it gooooo! If you haven't worn an article of clothing in over a year, chances are you are not going to miss it whatsoever.

Worn-out underwear

C'monnn, this one really doesn't need explaining!

Socks with Holes

Throwing away socks with holes is the perfect excuse to pick up cute, new ones!


Dentists recommend replacing your toothbrush every 3 months. If you have had yours for longer, toss and replace!

Unless you need old receipts for tax purposes or to return an item, just toss them as you see them.

Expired Food

More From Cosmopolitan

Take some time and go through your kitchen and get rid of any expired food in your pantry/fridge. Your stomach can thank us later​!

Cards/Gifts from your ex

Holding on to a box of memories from your ex might be preventing you to fully move on. Throw it out and (we promise) you'll feel like a million bucks! 

Toxic Friendships

Although this isn't an object, toxic friendships should also get the boot. If you have a friend who constantly puts you down, makes you feel bad about yourself, or completly drains you, no matter how long you have been friends, it may be time to say bye-bye!
