7 Things You Need To Toss Before January 1

New year, new you. Or is that too cliché? We all know about setting resolutions and getting healthier in the new year, but what about things you should toss before the year is up? You want to enter the new year as light as possible, with the baggage of 2018 left behind. If you really want to start 2019 off on the best foot, leave these things behind in 2018.

what to toss in 2019

Clothes you don’t need

This is an easy one. Start the year off with a game of keep and toss and donate anything you don’t want to keep to your local women’s shelter. We put together a handy guide to make it easier.

Unwanted holiday gifts

You know the ones I’m talking about. Again, this is a great opportunity to donate to those in need.

Toxic friendships

There’s no time or energy for any of that negativity in 2019. Cut the ties and feel the weight lift from your shoulders.

The fear of failure

This is your year to get out there, take some chances, learn from any “failures” and keep moving ahead toward success.

Your ex’s number

You don’t need it. Delete, delete, delete.

Toxic masculinity

Again, something no one has time for in 2019. Get rid of any and all components in your life.



2019 is the year you accept yourself for the beautiful, sparkling goddess you are.


Happy New Year, friends! Here’s to a great year ahead. We’re so excited to see what 2019 brings.
