    Hiya
    not been around for a while. Used up a few bits in the bathroom and have found out that I have about 7 months to declutter our flat before baby arrives!!!!

    I have dug out a few bits to list on ebay on Thurs and Fri when there is no insertion fee.

    Let the decluttering begin!!!!

    Congrats on the seven months peace and quiet ;)

    Have sorted a small pile of books to get listed on greenmet from my bookcases but not achieved anything further lately, feel like I've not been home for aaaages for some reason.

    I've been doing ok on the use it up front. On one day finished up some body butter, shampoo & hair treatment masque and my food cupboards are looking more empty as I'm working my way through all the bits and bobs that are lurking unused in the shelves.

    I really need to start ebaying though!

    And my book collection has increased as a friend gave me a huge bag of books that she was given by a friend in publishing - all brand new books :j - my friend doesn't read :eek: but good for me so I shouldn't complain! (although I have no where for them to go!!)
    I've got my own flat :j:j

    Now I have to pay the bills :eek:

    And feed my interiors addiction ;)

    Hi all,
    Been busy decluttering and using up on the toiletries front.
    Bathroom looking emptier and got rid of an old wardrobe from spare room that was broken. - I say spare room! Since our son left home it has been going to be an office, a guest room and a walk-in wardrobe (daughter has ideas of grandeur). As it is, it remains a place to dump any junk that is in transition from one place to somewhere else.
    Have decided to start downstairs and work upwards that way anything in the loft is not an eyesore.
    Now running short of motivation...
    Have paid off catalogue debt though so another step towards being debt free!!
    :icotbaske Hoping to be debt free in 3 years in time for 25th anniversary.

    Hi everyone and YAY! :j

    Sold the clothes horse...oops I mean treadmill :D. Not via the classifieds as planned, but to a colleague at work, who fancies getting fit. He's well pleased, and so am I!

    We had fun getting it across the ICY office car park from my car into his though; Torvill and Dean would have been proud of our ice skating :rotfl:
    This space for rent ;)

    Ignorance is not an excuse. How about utter stupidity?
