16 Things You Should Throw Away Immediately

It's always a hard decision trying to decide what you should keep and what you should throw away when it comes to decluttering your life. We are here to help. We really don't want to see you in an episode of "Hoarders" next season.


16 Things You Should Throw Away Immediately:

1. Obsolete Technology

Why would you hang onto these things? Unless you plan on opening an Outdated Tech Museum, toss it!



2. Boots That Are Beyond Repair

If you have to duct tape your boots together, it's time for a new pair. We don't care how broken in they are!

Time for new boots?


3. Expired Cosmetics

Not only are they messy, they also harbor unsafe bacteria that cause breakouts or real issues such a gnarly eye infection. Toss. Them. Now.



4. Your Kitchen Sponge

Speaking of harboring bacteria, a kitchen sponge is a bacterial playground. Replace them at least once per month.


5. Worn Out Socks

Want to keep your feet happy? Don't wear socks like these! Just throw them away, socks are cheap.


Talk about Unhappy Feet! It's a sign!! Lol! #holeysocks #footsies

6. Outdated Clothing

Most likely, you aren't going to wear outdated clothing. If nothing else, sell it online to someone who will!


7. Wire Hangers

Remember when we listed Shocking Ways You are Ruining Your Clothes? Wire hangers were on the list.



8. Old Magazines

For some reason, these really stack up in our homes. But they take up unnecessary space and face it. You are never going back to read that article.


9. Unfinished Pinterest Projects

If you have multiple of these unfinished projects laying around, it's time to face the music. You aren't going to finish them. It's time to let them go.



10. Broken Appliances

It's not worth the repair bill to have them fixed and you sure don't need them cluttering up the space. Time to say goodbye. We know it hurts.


11. Broken Toys

If your kids are like our kids, they have too much stuff anyway. Trust us when we say they aren't going to miss the one-armed Gremlin.



12. Your Toothbrush

If your toothbrush looks like these, it's time to toss them. Just kidding. But really. You are supposed to change your toothbrush every 3 months. Really.

13. Dead Batteries

They aren't coming back to life. Toss them, responsibly, of course. But get rid of them!



14. 99.9 Percent of Items in Your Junk Drawer

We all have one, but most of the stuff needs to go. Come on, you can do it!



15. Expired Meds

Yep. Medications expire. And they can be become dangerously overly potent (or completely ineffective) either way, you don't want to risk it.


16. Expired Food

You will be amazed at what all you find that is way beyond expired when you clean out the pantry. It's a little scary!

You HAVE to Watch Jason Aldean, Keith Urban, Chris Stapleton and Little Big Town Sing Tom Petty's "Won't Back Down" During CMT Artists of the Year Celebration

During a night that CMT was supposed to celebrate the individual accomplishment of five artists that had big-time, celebration worthy years, they opted for low-key spot moments and instead, turned the attention to fans across the country who are suffering. Namely, Las Vegas shooting victims and the tragic events that took place during the Route 91 Harvest Festival.

As Jason Aldean was set to be honored, Luke Bryan took the stage to not only talk about Aldean's successful singles, albums and tours, but the fact that he was the one on stage in Las Vegas that night. And he's the one who has decided to endure and fight on.

Keith Urban and Nicole Kidman Were the World's Sweetest Couple on the Red Carpet Before CMT Artists of the Year Celebration

In a world where we could all use a little more love, Keith Urban and Nicole Kidman seem to always have some to share with everyone. When these two walk onto a red carpet Otis Redding's "Try A Little Tenderness" automatically starts playing in my head. Because there's not a more loving or tender couple around.



Urban was being honored as one of the 2017 CMT Artists of the Year and of course, Kidman was right by his side supporting her "amazing, supportive, gorgeous husband who [she] loves more than anything in the world."

Just look at this photo.

"The Voice" Announces The Return Of A Fan Favorite Coach For Season 14

The 13th season of "The Voice" is just starting to heat up but that isn't stopping the show from hyping up next season. The 14th season of "The Voice" will be competing with the resurrected "American Idol" anchored by judges Katy Perry and Luke Bryan. To compete, "The Voice" stole away "Idol" alum Kelly Clarkson, putting her in one of the rotating chairs alongside Blake Shelton and Adam Levine. But the fourth judge's chair was still empty. It was until yesterday, when they announced a fan favorite would return to judge once again.

Katy Perry Gets Stuck Mid-Air As Prop Malfunctions During Nashville Concert

Katy Perry gathered her fans—affectionately called Katy Cats—at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville Wednesday night (Oct. 18) for her Witness World Tour.

The show was moving along smoothly until suddenly there was a glitch. While Perry was flying high above the crowd on an oversized replica of the planet Saturn, singing "Thinking of You," the flying prop was supposed to drop her down to the stage. Only this time, she wasn't descending. The planet malfunctioned and left Katy hanging in mid-air for a brief moment.

The 32-year-old handled the mishap like the pro she is, talking and joking with the crowd. "I'm really stuck. This is the first time I've been stuck in space", Katy said as she lingered in the air. "I could be stuck here forever. What should I do, should I tell some jokes, should I tell some stories, should I just sing another song."

Look, I love a good brunch. You just can't beat an excellent late breakfast. But brunch is getting pretty out of hand. Restaurants are going crazy trying to keep up and compete for brunchers.

Now, a fancy brunch spot in Long Beach, California has been outed for reselling Popeye's fried chicken in their "famous" $13 chicken and waffles. The owner proudly responded %95 of their menu is made in house.

Anna Faris Says She and Chris Pratt Truly Love and Adore Each Other

It seems like Anna Faris and Chris Pratt have turned their #CoupleGoals into #DivorceGoals? No, that's not a thing, but treating the person you shared a huge part of your life with with love and respect is definitely a thing and Faris and Pratt are doing it.

After 8 years of marriage and one child together, Pratt and Faris announced their separation in August via social media, sharing, "Anna and I are sad to announce we are legally separating. We tried hard for a long time, and we're really disappointed. Our son has two parents who love him very much and for his sake we want to keep this situation as private as possible moving forward. We still have love for each other, will always cherish our time together and continue to have the deepest respect for one another."

Since then, the two have only spoken highly of the other and Faris has taken it to the next level during a recent interview with People.
