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). ย That being said, they are not mine to decide upon. ย So I let them continue to gather dust.

Here’s the photo essay:

I think this is a graphics card... or possibly a dust collector?

Samsung tablet with keyboard, gather dust quite literally!  Since a iPad mini was won, this has been retired.

Not only is the printer int the cupboard, it has no driver to work on our computers.  Oh and it's actually the BF's old flatmates!?

The BF's recently retired iPhone.  Due to it's smashed screen, I wasn't keen to inherit it (like his iPhone 4 which finally met it death after 5 years!)

Every house needs two vacuums right?  The Dyson is my choice, but the cleaner did say that neither are currently working the best due to blocked filters, so she must have tried this one too!

Simply - two mops.  Oh but why?

These shoes are *cough* not my favourite, so the BF stopped wearing them.  But they lurk... They have no suitable replacement either

The BF has cool blue and lime runners, but these are kept 'Just In Case'

It’s really not that many things, but I keep my hand off! Actually, I did ask about all the electronic things last weekend when the council did it’s biannual ‘E-waste’ day. All I ended up taking was obsolete cables, those approved for disposal ๐Ÿ˜‰

Is there something you’d like to declutter from your home, but it’s not yours to decide?

  • What sort of Dyson do you have? Often the filters aren’t too hard to clean. LMK what you have. ๐Ÿ™‚

  • I could have written/photographed this exact post! E-waste is one of our final bastions – I never want to send it to landfill so it accumulates, waiting for 'e-waste recycling.' We have two old laptops that met the blue screen of death but still have photos on them – I keep thinking I will one day take them to the computer shop! Runners – guilty as charged. Two mops – yes! The only thing we don't currently have is any broken I-devices. Mr 11 ensures they get fixed promptly!

  • I could write a whole post about all the things I wish Rom would get rid of! When he came to Canada, he brought no furniture, but a lifetime of personal possessions. I wish he would sell the vintage synthesizers he has not once touched in over 5 years, all his obsolete computer books (a whole bookcase of them), and tons of old/worn/unfashionable clothes that are not worn but just kept. I could go on! PS – I would be somehow misplacing those shoes ๐Ÿ™‚

  • And it is so much easier to toss other people’s junk!!!

    I won’t start on Mr S’s stuff until I have dealt with all of my own. But one day ….
