1. To lose weight
The first 3 areas are obviously my problem areas and the middle 2 demand I declutter! I am always time short so decluttering is something that often gets left on the back burner but I have pushed myself to get to it.Having too much ‘stuff’ means clothes are stuffed in drawers and storage areas are overcrowded. I needed to sort out the clothes.
I had already sold on the better outgrown children clothes like the Boden pieces and those from Mothercare ( I always got good deals at Mothercare they have great sales, their clothes always resold well on eBay and their quality always meant they lasted) However I still had a number of clothes to sort .
1 or 2 very special items have made it into the kids special trunks where memories are held and a couple of items have been placed to one side for possibly upcycling into a quilt.
Drawers and storage are now much less jammed.I can find what I want straight away and a few pounds will be made, another family will get a bunch of new clothes and the charity should make a bit of money plus we have done our but for recycling. For just 1 hours work I am feeling great and am actually getting somewhere with my resolutions.
