Do you have a no-skid mat inside your bathtub that is moldy even after you scrub it? Do you have a bath rug that is dingy or worn-out?
Deciding to declutter your home does not mean that you need to keep substandard items because they are (barely) functional. Do you have a backup already tucked into your linen closet? Perhaps you saw a bathmat or a rug on sale, scooped it up, and then got home and decided to continue with what you were already using.
Maybe you have a second bathroom or guest bathroom that doesn’t often get used and there is a pristine mat or rug you could transfer to your primary bathroom.
You don’t want your foot to squelch on a wet-dog of a rug.
Only if this doesn’t apply to you: Sort through actual photos from an album, storage box, or even the developer/printer envelope. Get rid of five photos. These can be blurry, poor quality photographs if this makes you uptight.
