What I’d declutter, but it’s not mine

This is a light hearted post. There’s a number of items in our home that I think are RIPE for selling or ‘sending to heaven’ (our household code for decluttering and often to whichever avenue I deem best).  That being said, they are not mine to decide upon.  So I let them continue to gather …

Lessening the hoard of boxes

Lucinda recently set herself all sorts of rules to thin out her growing box collection. Taking her sterling lead, I decided I’d do the same: I then went and got rid of anything too small I couldn’t see myself reusing it, or useless show box lids (their bottom halves being in use already), and wine …

Cosmetic, toliteries and places I could declutter more

Book inventory

I love blogging! I drafted this post, and then I thought, ‘it’s a little disjointed’, ‘why this book isn’t with that book?’.  So after completely reorganising my books, hopefully now they are stored in a way that makes sense to you – it certainly makes more sense to me!  Oh and I decluttered two books …

What’s in your (bathroom) drawers?

Do people have the British sense of humour in my title.  Oh well, if not, I’ll just amuse myself with my dad jokes at the ripe age of 28 (and being a female!) Here’s another look into what I have.  I’m not sure why I am so fixated on tracking and documenting everything, but I …

One buffet, so many uses!

At the front door, I have a buffet with three drawers, and a cupboard with two shelves on either side.  It is the key to organisation in my house!  Shall we have a look what’s inside? Top drawer This drawer holds: church collection envelopes, my name tag, a small folding fan.  In winter it also …
