What to Throw Out of the House: 7 Items That Attract Bad Luck

There is a whole list of items that negatively affect your present and future. No matter how hard you try to adjust your reality, they stubbornly attract unhappiness to your home. It is better to throw away such items at certain times.

Life without unnecessary things – auspicious dates

Astrologers believe that cleaning is beneficial only twice a year: under a new moon and after the full moon, during the waning moon. The full moon in January 2023 happened yesterday, and as of today, the earth’s satellite is in its waning phase. Thus, you have a few days left to clean your home.

Good timing for getting rid of the negative things: January 19 through January 31 inclusive.

What to throw out of the house – 7 dangerous objects

All of these items are reminders of the past that you unconsciously hold on to. What’s on the list can easily be taken out to the trash (not to give, not to sell, not to donate, but exactly to throw away).

The only nuance is worn closet items that may still be useful to someone. In this case, you can give them to thrift stores or homeless assistance centers.

What items are unnecessary in the house – hygiene and aesthetics

Household items that fall into the categories of “sorry to throw away” and “don’t touch, will come in handy” are a headache for many Ukrainians. You move them from place to place for years, you don’t use them, but you can’t bring them to the trash.

Psychologists say that this tactic not only bothers you psychologically to let go of the past, but also is not quite correct in terms of sanitation – things gather dust, and you breathe it.

Take some free time and check for the following items in your closets.

Clothes and shoes:

  • Tights with pull-ups;
  • Socks with holes in them;
  • bras that have lost their breast support function;
  • Items with stains that cannot be washed;
  • out-of-size clothing;
  • prom or other ceremonial dresses;
  • old bathing suits.


  • Expired goods;
  • Dried lipstick or mascara;
  • samples;
  • Stretched rubber bands for hair;
  • almost empty jars and bottles;
  • “bald” makeup brushes.

Household goods:

  • Faded linens with lint;
  • feather pillows from the time of Ivan the Terrible;
  • souvenirs, trinkets, figurines, piggy banks;
  • old towels with stains or holes;
  • Broken appliances that you’ve been putting off repairing.

And this is not a complete list of things that you can find and gladly take to the dump. Unnecessary things include and old newspapers, magazines, postcards, business cards, advertising booklets, or stationery. Do not forget about the medicine cabinet – drugs that have outlived their useful life should be thrown out just like the empty packages from under them.
