The vlogger said clean out the cupboards to make space. Dispose of items you no longer need or use. There it was. As I have said in the recent past, I've been here 2.5 years. You wouldn't think I have had time to collect extra 'stuff'. But I have. Until I could get a dish set, I bought four $2.00 salad dishes at a local department store. I was gifted two cups from my daughter, as well. I haven't used these items since daughter number two gave me a set of dishes. The only thing missing from the set was 3 cereal bowls. Since soup bowls came with the set, I don't need the three bowls. Out to a charity shop they go. Same thing goes for the bowls I bought (This store has great clearance sales.)
All of these items are in great condition, but I don't need them. I like to think another family could benefit from their use.
Do you like to donate items you no longer use? How much cupboard space do you have? When we move into a house the space seems more than we need. Then, before you know it, we're scrambling for space to get items out of sight.

I don;t have a large family living with me any longer, so I don't need as many items as I use to. When they come over for dinner I improvise where I need to.
