With settlement just over 6 weeks away the race is on to declutter our house and get out of it. If you know me then I’m a bit of a hoarder. I wouldn’t get my own show or anything but we have a lot of stuff. And it’s mine. Retro daddy doesn’t really keep stuff except his footy and basketball trophies and the odd Mentone footy jumper from his youth. Me……..I’ve got everything. School yearbooks, diaries, craft, more craft stuff, vintage patterns, fabric I’ll never use, wool I’ll never use and the kids wardrobes are overflowing. Getting this house ready to sell meant putting everything in the garage…………as you can see.
In my defence every now and then I have a big clear out and go crazy……..like when I donated all of my maternity clothes including my favourite jeans to vinnies. Really regretting that decision since I can’t remember the size, DJs don’t sell them any more and I’m not sure where to find them now.
Anyway 40 bags in 40 days is something I did a few years back. The idea being that over Lent you fill a bag – any size – grocery to garbage and you do one bag a day to get the stuff out of the house. Could be going to charity, a friend, the garbage bin or the tip. Just get it out. Cleaning and getting ready for easter or in our case to leave this house.
So that’s what I’m starting today………..once I’ve dealt with mount washmore.
Got a clutter problem like me or are you amazingly good at decluttering…….
