Decluttering your entire life is a tiresome journey. I find I have days when I’m really productive and get rid of bin bags full of items. I then have other days when I look around me and feel like crying. Continue reading “Clear Out Unwanted Items & Make Money”

What exactly is a minimalist lifestyle?
For starters, it definitely isn’t a radical lifestyle. You don’t have to get rid of your car, your smartphone, your laptop, or things that you’re emotionally attached to.

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!

Keeping a home clean, tidy and organised can be difficult at the best of times but adding children into the mix can make it 10 times harder.
