    me too! After a series of rubbish things happening this year I've decided to move - even though this is only a rented house we've been here since it was first built nearly 3 years ago (thankfully out of contract and landlord is a family friend) but to try and save a bit Im trying to downsize the next house - or maybe an apartment would be nice - that means making all this stuff in a 3 bed house into a 2 bed apartment! Have already started decluttering since yesterday and already filled 2 wheelie bins today, a charity black bag and 2 big boxes of stuff gone online to sell - will probably be up all night clearing out more since theres nothing more fun going on in my life lol
    Life is what you make it.

    Weeclick - you're off to a flying start! I am so slow at this because I don't want anything to end up in landfill, am trying to rehome everything and it's taking forever!
    Trying to spend less time on MSE so I can get more done ... it's not going great so far! :)
    Sorry if I don't reply to posts - I'm having MAJOR trouble keeping up these days!

  • Hi everyone,

    This is a great thread - I buy so much stuff that's currently collecting dust, so I need to get using it or selling it!

    Stuff I'm going to do:-
    • eBay clothes I don't wear
    • Lose weight so I can fit into clothes that don't fit
    • Start doing food plans to stop wasting food!
    • Read all my books that I own before buying new ones, then sell/swap them
    • Use up toiletries before I buy more
    • Sell unwanted DVDs & watch the ones I've bought but haven't seen
    Good luck to everyone with the challenge :j
