Two things that we usually buy in our lives…. the HARD GOODS and CONSUMABLE.
Hard goods are things we buy to keep them and used them in long period of time. While consumable are those we used-up and need replenishing.
All of us have a tendecy to overstock our consumable, such as, paper toilets, soap, condiments, toothpaste and more. We are quilty to buy more than what we needed. Sometimes we keep buying this consumable to extend an ample space to store them.
The Unclutterer group have a good advice on how to eliminate this hobby of crowding our consumable.
“To avoid these perils, evaluate your consumable inventory regularly. This means keeping on top of three primary areas: the refrigerator, the pantry and your toiletries stash.
- Clean out the refrigerator weekly, preferably the night before trash goes out to the curb.
- Keep informed about what’s in your pantry and don’t buy things you already have. Sort through everything in your pantry at least twice a year.
- Except for toilet paper and possibly bar soap, only keep a few extra toiletries on hand at any given time. Toiletry goods expire quickly (especially makeup), so buy them only when you need them. “
