One of the best yet most obvious tests to help you purge an item out of your home is the dust or amount of dust it has collected. The thicker the dust, the more likely the item needs to go. Here's a list of the top 10 dust collectors that will free up space, make cleaning easier and your life more streamlined.
Untouched recipe books
Old VHS tapes, DVDs and CDS
Worn out runners and outdated shoes
Dried flowers or fake plants
Outdated sports equipment
You may have other things in your home that have collected dust, but purging these dust magnets is a sure fire way to declutter your home. Those with allergies will usually see reduced symptoms as an added bonus.
