Declutter with A Thrifty Mum

So after my admission that I am something of a hoarder.  I have been putting a decluttering task a day on A Thrifty Mum Facebook page.  

This week I have decluttered the following:

  1. My sock and underwear drawer
  2. My shoes (which was hard as I have never thrown a pair of shoes away in my adult life)
  3. My bedside cabinet.

I have been ruthless and have binned things that are no longer of use, recycled, donated and also listed some items on ebay.  

Tomorrow I am going to post a list of other tasks one for each day of next week.  I figure Sunday is a day of rest, plus it is the last day before the boys go back to school, so I want to spend it doing family stuff.

Decluttering Tips

My tips for decluttering are really simple.  Focus on one area at a time.  Make sure you are not just moving things, but to actually make sure you have a place for them or put them in your recycle, donate or sell boxes.

Who is up for joining me? 


  1. ME. I'll join you. I'll go and do my underwear drawer in a minute, shoes are already done, and my bedside table definitely needs doing!

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.
