Decluttering 365

  1. Hi Sue - I did this challenge last year and still feel I have enough left over to do it again! I thought this morning as I rushed around for an appointment how much lighter I feel seeing some empty spaces :)

  2. Glad I found this. I was sitting in school this morning, before exams started, looking for my favourite biro. When I realised that it was somewhere down inside the ripped lining of my handbag I thought - time this one went. So I am off to have a look in the wardrobe for a replacement and to see which other ones can go off to the charity shop tomorrow.

  4. What a good idea, just be careful you don't end up needing stuff and then create the need to spend. Looking through your list from last time though you seem to have two of most things. I am inspired by you to go and clear more. xx

Sorry but I have added word verification to try and curtail the unprecedented amount of spammers recently posting comments. I will try this rather than stop Anonymous Users commenting for the time being to see if this will solve the problem. Thank you for your patience.
