100 Reasons to Get Rid of It - Part Seven

Part Seven - Because It's Old or Expired

64. Replacing old appliances with new, energy-efficient ones saves money and fuel.
65. Running shoes should be retired after 300 to 500 miles in order to prevent injuries.
66. Throw away your toothbrush every three to four months.
67. Swap your pitcher's water filter every two months.
68. Change out disposable air conditioner filters once a month (during the hot, air conditioning season).
69 Replace the batteries in your smoke detector on the same day every year to make it easier to remember to change the batteries. I change the batteries on Halloween night and Daylight Savings Time day.
70. Find the USDA's recommended storage limits for refrigerated and frozen food.
71. Throw out mascara and moisturizer after three months.
72. Discard foundation and sunscreen after six months.
73. Keep concealer, lipstick, eyeliners, lip liners, fragrances, powders, blushes, and shadows no longer than two years.
74.-76. Say goodbye to the dried-out remnants of your favorite no-longer-available lipstick and check out Three Custom Color Specialists, T.J.Maxx stores, or Lancome's "Beauty Bye-Bye" program for replacements or duplicates of discontinued cosmetics.
