    Today didn't end up being a NSD as I forgot the window cleaner was coming so £2.30 spent. I had some spare time this afternoon and inspired by another forum user HHOD I have decluttered all my clothes and shoes. One black bin bag of clothes for the charity shop and one for the clothing bin. Plus around 20 books well. I have at least 40 items for eBay as well.

    I am determined now to de clutter every drawer and cupboard over the summer. I am definitely not a hoarder so it shouldn't be a to onerous task.

    Took lounge and bedroom curtains down, also took cushion covers off and now it's all washed ready to go back up over the weekend.

    Looking forward to a nice bath tonight .

    Hi there - good luck with the final furlong - I've subscribed.


    Nothing like a good old pared down wardrobe - I sorted a few things out myself last weekend - couple of pairs of trousers that was slightly too small initially but now fit - however I found that I didn't really care for them anymore! Off to the charity shop they went!


    Have a good weekend Sunshine. Are you up to anything special apart from the de-cluttering?

    Hi SSG , I am not up to anything else this weekend just usual mundane housework and shopping. I am however heading to Scotland for Easter .

    Everyone seems to be decluttering like crazy. I have decluttered my clothes so ruthlessly I now don't have enough to wear! Have a good weekend :)

    Not long now till Easter. Quite envious that you're visiting lovely Scotland.

    Excellent idea on the little and often de-cluttering policy over the summer. That way you won't get fed up with it or overwhelmed. I've was going to do my seasonal job of swapping over my autumn/winter clothes to spring/summer this weekend but it's still rather chilly so I'm going to leave it till next weekend. Not exactly sandal weather yet! I'll carry on wearing the boots - I do have one pair of flip flops out but they're for the pedicure days!:D

    Well I am snookered if it rains now as my wardrobe is full of sandals ! All my winter stuff is packed away in the suitcase.

    I have done tons more washing , bedding , mattress protectors on all both beds . Cleaned my windows , I only have 4 :rotfl:.

    Went to the beauticians for waxing and had a free eyebrow wax from loyalty visits so saved £6. I am limping into payday now , which is Friday but will be Thursday .

    eBay is going well , have had a few bids already.

    Need to wash up now and settle down for the evening.
