16 Household Products to Eliminate Now To Save Room

Homeowners constantly fill their homes with unnecessary items they often think they’ll need but don’t. But with overconsumption quickly becoming an issue in society, it’s not surprising that many people find it challenging to decipher between products that are necessities and those that aren’t. Here are sixteen everyday household products you don’t actually need. 

1. Wire Hangers

When shopping for clothes, you want to purchase high-quality items; the same should apply to your clothes hangers. Wire hangers are cheap and tend to bend, causing your clothes to wrinkle. Instead, opt for wooden hangers for a more luxurious and sustainable solution. 

2. Mismatched Plastic Cups

Is your cupboard filled with mismatched plastic cups? Mismatched drinkware can be such an eyesore, especially when they’re made of plastic. Unless you have small children, you should invest in a high-quality set of matching glass tumblers. 

3. Landline Phone

Do people still use landline phones? With cell phones and phone plans so affordable, there isn’t really a need to have a landline at your home anymore. If you have a landline phone you haven’t used in a while, it’s time to get rid of it. 

4. Old Bedding

Do you constantly use the same sheet sets while unused bedding sets are in storage? Many people hesitate to get rid of bedding, thinking they’ll use them again someday. If they’re still in good condition, donate them, and if not, it’s time to get rid of your old bedding.

5. Kitchen Timer

For people whose ovens don’t have a built-in timer, investing in a kitchen timer might seem like a good idea. But if you have a cellphone, is there really a reason to have a kitchen timer? Your kitchen timer is most likely sitting at the back of your junk drawer. 

6. Mismatched Towels

People often accumulate a collection of mismatched towels over time. But there’s no reason to have old towels and washcloths cluttering your bathroom or storage. If you want your house to look like a well-organized home, you should invest in a matching towel set.

7. Microwave

Have you ever used your microwave for something your oven couldn’t do? Microwaves are popular appliances, but they typically take up so much space around the kitchen, and they aren’t actually necessary. You could use a kettle to heat water, make popcorn with the stove, and reheat leftovers in the oven. 

8. Novelty Mugs

There’s something exciting about collecting mugs from trips and novelty shops. However, they eventually occupy too much space around your kitchen. Only keep mugs around your kitchen that mean the most to you, and get rid of the rest. 

9. Specialty Appliances

Sandwich makers, toasters, waffle irons, and bread makers are everyday items homeowners invest in. But unless you actually plan on making waffles every week or grilled cheese sandwiches every few days, these appliances will only take up valuable space in your kitchen. 

10. Outdated Electronics

Do you actually plan on using your old cellphone, laptop, or DVD player lying in the back of your junk drawer? If you have electronics sitting around the house that you haven’t used in a long time, you can get rid of them. You might even be able to resell some of your old electronics to make money. 

11. Wine Rack

How long do you store a wine bottle on a wine rack? The average person will only keep a bottle of wine around for a few weeks before they use it. So, unless you’re a wine enthusiast, you don’t need a fancy wine rack.

12. Fine China

So many people have had fine china sets sitting in a glass cabinet for years that have never been used. Meanwhile, they have mismatched dishes they use regularly, instead of keeping dishes around the house that you don’t actually need, why not get rid of the fine china. 

13. Tupperware Sets

How many containers from your tupperware set do you actually use? Tupperware sets typically have several different sizes of bowls, but most people only need a few of them. Instead of investing in a set of several plastic bowls, consider investing in glass bowls in the sizes you need. 

14. Kitchen Utensil Set

Have you ever used a pasta scooping spoon or meat tenderizing mallet? Kitchen utensil sets seem like a better deal than buying each product individually. But there are so many items in the set that you don’t need. You should only invest in the items you actually need and get rid of the rest. 

15. Specialty Glasses

Unless you’re a bartender, there’s no reason to have specific glasses for different beverages. Beer mugs, wine glasses, margarita glasses, and shot glasses will occupy valuable space in your kitchen. Invest in a few high-quality glasses that can be used for everything from iced tea to champagne and everything in between. 

16. Specialized Cleaning Products

Do you really need specialized cleaning products for every room of your home? Instead of purchasing several bottles of different cleaning solutions, find an all-purpose cleaner that works for your home. An all-purpose cleaner with non-toxic ingredients is the best option for your home.
