6 Non Physical Things To Declutter From Your Life

As Spring is in full swing, everyone’s all about that decluttering life. From old clothes, unwanted books, broken cutlery and old make up, we’re all obsessed with throwing things away. I’ve been like that my whole life. I don’t have to wait to Spring to get a burst of motivation to declutter my life. In fact, this Spring, I’ve not actually had anything physical to declutter because I throw things away so often, it rarely builds up.

However, that doesn’t mean I can’t still have a declutter of my life because there’s plenty of non-physical things we often overlook when it comes to decluttering and clearing out our lives and our online spaces. This can be just as important as the physical stuff, so take a couple of hours to work through all the non-physical things that definitely need a declutter this Spring too!

Netflix Watch List

How many films and shows have you aimlessly put on your Netflix watch list only to forget about them almost instantly? But then you forget about them so much that they just stay there on your list, doing nothing? Get rid of everything that you’re 100% not going to watch or anything you’ve completely forgotten about. If you haven’t watched it in 6 months of it being on your list, sorry hun but you’re never going to watch it.

YouTube Watch Later List

With so many creators releasing new content every single day on YouTube, it can be so hard to keep up with everyone. Even the most avid YouTube watcher can’t watch everything in one day. Sometimes your YouTube Watch Later list builds up and builds up to the point where it’s almost impossibly to tackle. And not to mention over time, you might just fall out of love with some creators and that’s okay!

Spam Comments

Our spam comments folder can build up massively over time because it’s not normally something we’re thinking about. Obviously, it’s spam. But take some time to delete all your spam comments and try and stay on top of it! But don’t forget, some genuine comments do get confused for spam sometimes, so whilst sorting your spam folder out, you might come across a lot of long lost comments from genuine readers!

Junk and Deleted Emails

How often do you clear out your deleted emails folder? Rarely I’d guess? I didn’t do mine in probably 6 months and it took FOREVER to clear out, so now I’m trying to do it more regularly so it doesn’t get cluttered. And if you’re not someone that checks your junk folder regularly, now is a good time to do that too!

Unused Apps / Games / Programs

I’m thinking all things electronic here, so your phone, your computer and any consoles you might have. Apps, programs and games also build up over time but you never use 100% of them all the time. Any games that you’re done with for now, get rid of them from your device to make room for new ones. Any apps you haven’t used in months can go because you’re unlikely to use them after all this time and any programs on your laptop that never get used can be uninstalled too!

Facebook Friends List

And finally, your Facebook friends. This is a really good one to have a declutter of because you simply do not need 800 Facebook friends, of which you met once, at a party, when you were 17 and never spoke to once after that. There will be a lot of people on here that you no longer need or want in your life. People you haven’t spoken to in years, don’t get along with any more or simply strangers from the past that you’ve forgotten about.

There we are, 6 important non physical things that you can easily declutter from your life today! How many of these are you going to tackle?

    Some great suggestions.

    Ironically you’ve also made me realise that I should probably utilise the list functionality a bit more on Netflix to save me time scrolling through it.

    1. You really should! But don’t let it get too messy!

  6. Love a good declutter!
