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!

Bissell Vac and Steam Machine Review and Giveaway

I have hard floors downstairs which I love.  They are much more practical than carpet with 2 mucky boys and a dog. Over the past 8 years I have tried all sorts of ways to keep them clean and I think I have finally found the product that does that for me. It is the  Bissell Vac and Steam Machine .  This amazing suel action machine vacuums and steam cleans either independently or at the same time.  It means that I have done away with my vacuum and steam cleaner downstairs (which I gave to my brother in law). What I like: You can either vacuum or steam clean or do both It is lightweight and easy to manoeuvre The handle is adjustable great for a home with people of different heights and for getting the kids involved. You need no chemicals The pads are washable and reusable It comes with a two year guarantee It warms up fast (within 30 seconds) so no long wait to start cleaning It costs under £100 It is space saving.  No need for a separate vacuum, steam cleaner or mop.
