40 Things No Woman Over 40 Should Own. We collect stuff as we age; it’s just something we do. There’s nothing wrong with that, but sometimes what we own can get a little dated – we don’t mean that in a good way. By the time you’ve reached 40, you’ve probably collected a lot of stuff. You’ve had four decades to curate your home, but that doesn’t mean it’s reflecting what you want it to show.
When someone walks into your home or when you walk outside in your clothing, most people want to send a message. While the message changes as you age, most people at 40 want to be taken seriously. Who wouldn’t after that long? You probably have your own place and have had your own place for a while. You no longer have a job but a career – one that has allowed you to climb the ladder. When you walk outside or invite guests to your house, they should get that message.
Unfortunately, some items can detract from that. Do you take anyone seriously if they walk outside in Uggs? Yeah, they’re comfortable, but they’re frankly ridiculous and reflect something a 15-year-old might wear on the way to a convenience store on a cold winter day.
We’re going to go over 40 things that no woman over 40 should own because they detract from the fact that you’re a grown adult that makes their own decisions. Of course, you should do what makes you happy. If frameless band posters light up your life, then keep them hung!
