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.

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
