Ways to Declutter your space
Start writing a post

If you are anything like me, you have some left over clutter from last semester. With Fall just around the corner, these last few weeks of summer are the perfect time to get organized and declutter for the new semester.

Donate or Resell Used Textbooks


Chances are you will not be reusing last semester's statistics book for any casual reading. Open up some more space on your shelf by either donating your old textbooks or selling them to a friend!

Organize Your Closet


Summer is the best time to go through your closet! Sort items in piles of things you wear and things you never wear. If you never wear an item put it in a donation bag. Once you have organized your clothes fold them neatly or hang them up organizing by color or clothing type. Once summer ends, it might be a good idea to store your summer clothes in a storage container until next season- this will free up more space for your fall and winter clothes.

Get Rid of Old Shoes


Whoever said diamonds are a girl's best friend, may have been wrong...shoes might be a top contender.

Go Through Toiletries


It is best to check toiletries by the scent as well as the expiration date on the product. Items such as makeup usually go bad after being open for twelve months.

NYC Classrooms struggle with marijuana and high students

The Cannabis landscape has changed, and so have what schools experience

The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) reported that about 35.7% of 12th graders in the U.S. had used marijuana in the past year, and 11.8% reported daily use.
