Declutter update and New Year New You

I have been decluttering for a week and I wanted to update on how I am doing.
  • The boys wardrobes have been sorted and a sack of clothes gifted to a neighbour.
  • My clothes have been sorted and I have three sacks to go to the charity shop.
  • Mini has donated his old keyboard to the charity shop (leaving more room for books)
  • We have sorted though the children's books and there are 5 bags ready to donate to the school.
I feel as though I am on a roll and have been aching this is small chuncks of 15 minutes whilst doing all the rest of the jobs.

This week I plan to tackle the following tasks:
  • Sort the bathroom supplies.
  • Sort though the medicine cabinets
  • Sort the store cupboards in the kitchen 
If you are looking to get in to the New year with some changes, then why not take a look Hillarys curtains and blinds ‘New Year, New You’ competition on Facebook.

The competition gives you the chance to win a different prize a week.  This week there is a chance to win a £100 spa voucher.  Which I think I might deserve after getting the house in order!

If you are decluttering this January how are you getting on?  


  1. Wow, and that's great going. I should really do something similar... *sigh*

  2. You are doing great Jen. I'll share the pictures of my bedroom at the end of the month and then you'll know how great the 15 minutes process works!

Dumping the tumble dryer and Ecoforce giveaway

We have a tumble dryer, but it broke before christmas and we  couldn't afford to get it repaired, so I have been managing with an old fashioned wooden clothes rail and hanging bedding over the doors to dry, This last would of weeks however, I have been hanging the washing outside and it has been drying much quicker and with less creases, so I am going to take the plunge and instead of getting the dryer replaced I am going to give it away. Ecoforce heard me on twitter bemoaning the fact that I was chasing laundry round the garden as my pegs were not working and very kindly sent me some of their Ecoforce pegs to try and they have been fab. So in conjunction with Ecoforce I have a year's supply of green cleaning and washing up wonder products worth £50 comprising the following: EcoForce Peg Basket x 1 EcoForce Clothes Line x1 EcoForce Pegs x 2 packs Several of each of: EcoForce sponges, scourers, cloths, duster and bag grips Dishmatic Dishmatic Refills x
