Having a Clear Out!
This major clear out that I’m currently undertaking is taking much longer than I anticipated. It would be going a lot faster if I was just throwing everything away but I really don’t want to do that! A lot of it is still good stuff that could be used again by someone else. I literally cannot bear the thought of something going into the bin that could be reused. Dam you eco conscious side of my brain! I have now ramped it up a gear or two as I really want the clear out to be completed before Christmas as we have about 14 guests staying with us. No pressure!
Cash For Your Clutter
I recently took part in the Cash For Your Clutter Challenge. It involved clearing out my wardrobe and filling as many of the declutter bags as I could. The items were then collected from my home and sent off to charity. I received £4 per bag which isn’t a huge amount but it saved me the agro of trying to list and sell the clothes on a selling site and also the clothes went to charity.
The whole challenge was organised by the company Bedroom Storage Maker. I enjoyed taking part as they offered both charity donations and payment! That’s a win win if you ask me. I personally only managed to fill two sacks as I had already had a major clear out not long before but every little bits help towards living a simpler, clutter free life right?
