Over Christmas I was blog hopping and discovered quite a few people determined to really go for de-cluttering their homes. Now we do not exactly spend much or throw money away, but having been in our current house for about 12 years you do accumulate things.
So I have picked up on a couple of ideas and come up with what I intend to do in January, and that is to de-clutter one item a day. The item will either be given to Charity (I have a bag in position and when full will be taken to the Charity shop). Or given to a friend to use. Or put in for recycling or up-cycle for a different use. Progress so far........
January 1st An old rusty tin. (Recycling)
January 2nd Old cheap plastic ink pen.
January 3rd Four CB's (Charity shop)
January 4th An un-used red Bag (Charity shop)
January 5th Table cloth (Charity shop)
January 6th Heart shaped wooden picture frame (Charity shop)
January 7th Sorted out and removed rusty clothes pegs.
January 8th ???????
Some of the items are really quite small but I need to start somewhere and as time goes on I am sure that it will get harder and the items more significant. If I should change my mind before the bags go to their homes then I can......but hopefully not.
How is your organising for 2012 going? I intend to also sort out my craft/blog and on line shop paperwork next, but that is for another time.
My crochet WIP is progressing and thank you to all of the people who visited yesterday I will have more to show you but I have been marking student homework today so progress has been stopped.
The flower picture? Well I just like it and a post looks a bit forlorn without a picture.............
Have a good weekend
