November's 30 day declutter


November's 90 item declutter target

ACHIEVED!

I suddenly realised that it is December tomorrow
and still had 8 items to find to reach the 90 item target.
So this was sorted with a quick visit to my
 scarves/gloves/belts drawer.

So, what's gone?

To the charity shop:
1 skirt
6 pairs of trousers
16 (!) tops
4 scarves
2 handbags
1 tube Body Wash (a gift with a hidden message?!)
3 hardback books
5 paperbacks
2 ladies belts

To the school for the library:
27 books, reference and fiction

To Clothing Recycling:
23 items, various (we really don't need to discuss 
the contents of my knicker drawer!)

So that's November done.

I can't stop now - 
I haven't even touched the kitchen cupboards,
 the loft or my studio conservatory -
so I'm carrying on the challenge into December,
setting myself a new 90 item target.

Achievable?

You bet!

Wow Jo! You have Superwoman tendencies ... I'm totally in awe of your ability to de-clutter. Could you come and advise on mine please? Although I suspect several lots of 30 days would not be adequate! pen xxx

wow You did do some major cleaning out! I need to do that as well, it's just a matter of actually doing it!!

Wow, well done. But you could have told us about your knicker drawer.... Valerie

Your post brings on an attack of guiltiness. I am just thinking of all the recent accumulations of plastic bags to say nothing of fabric scraps. The conservatory sounds a good name. it was suggested that when i sewed a lot to call my room the atelier. just could not think of short as couturier productions!

This is one target I won't be joining you on because once I start throwing things away I want to have a wholesale clear out and there might be nothing left! Can't you de-clutter by re-packaging some of the things as Christmas presents.... to yourself? Or is that cheating?

That is one thing I start pushing off,Jo.Want to come over?
Have a wonderful evening.
Hugs,

Well done on reaching the target, and on keeping track of what your items were! I've now been in de-clutter mode for a week and I have completely lost track of how many and what - once I hit the bedroom it was impossible to keep track. But our house is looking so much tidier and I will be able to decorate for Christmas happy in the knowledge that the beauty won't only be skin deep!

Can you come for a holiday, I was going to say a short one but it may take a while. I loath our clutter. Christmas is upon us and it is going to get worse. Mind you it would help if I got off my bottom and did something about it instead of moaned.

Wow you're seriously sorting that house of yours at the minute, there'll be nothing left LOL! I ended up sorting through my stash and got rid of 90 items in swoop! I've been decluttering the house through the year but stash is one of those sacred things I rarely touch LOL!
