This weeks decluttering plans

I have still be busy decluttering and even managed to get MadDad to sort through his clothes at the weekend!

This weeks plans are as follows:

  1. Linen Cupboard - Sort though the linens and make sure they are sorted in to bed.  Donate or sell any surplus sets.
  2. Bathroom - Clear any drawers or storage in the bathroom.  Make a list of what products you have, so that you do not over stock.
  3. Children's bedrooms - Sort through drawers removing items for your throw away, giveaway and sell box.
  4. Children's bedrooms - Sort under their beds.
  5. Children's bedrooms - Wardrobe sort out 

If you have older children then it is important that you involve them in this, so that they can ensure they keep their rooms in a clean state.  I always agree with my boys that anything I sell from their rooms that they can have that spent on them.

Emotionally decluttering 

For me removing excess items from the home is all part of a larger exercise.  When I am upset, scared or unwell I accumulate "stuff".  A lot of what I am removing from our home is things that I brought in after my mum died and I am learning that if I remove this clutter that not only does it make the house easier to look after, but there is a side effect of clearing my mind too.  

I am slowly emotionally decluttering.  leaving room in my mind and home for the beautiful and useful things.

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. 

Tissue paper poppy badges

Remembrance Sunday will soon be upon us and my boys take part in the annual church service and march as Beavers. This year MadDad will also be marching in his capacity as Manager of the U7's football team.  We are great believers in remembering what people have done for us and the boys have been busy making tissue paper poppies at Beavers.
