If you have bags of potting soil that are more than a year old, are you certain that the soil is in good condition? Has the soil dried out, or become saturated and moldy, or have some small critter move it? Whatever the project was that you bought the soil for, chances are that you aren’t still planning on doing that it.
Depending on the condition of the soil, spread it in your garden, cover your composting vegetable matter with it, or dump it along the edge of your yard.
If this task doesn’t apply to you: Look for materials that you purchased for some project you never got around to. Decide to schedule the project or release the items.
