What is it about this time of year that has us wanting to declutter? I am reading so many blogs where the downunder members are busy decluttering their homes! And I am no different. About 2 weeks ago, I walked into my kitchen and smelt something funny. I tried to find the source, but could not. This went on for about 2 or 3 days. Then it either cleared or I got used to it. As a direct result I cleared out every cupboard in my kitchen (I am working on my pantry at the moment!) Still did not find the source of the smell, LOL, but it is definitely gone! Last week I went through my recipe book collection. I have so many AWW cook books that I have never used, that I have decided that next year’s school fete is going to benefit from my decluttering.
We are also converting the original master bedroom into a smaller bedroom and home office. As a result of that, I have moved the shelves holding the toys into the new office, disposing of toys the kids have not played with or are really too old to play with (again off to the fete). I have started going through my paper collection, getting rid of magazines (Home Decoration), old paper work that is no longer needed and books that are beyond use. Hopefully by Christmas, I will have a decluttered house, ready for the junk that others decide we need, and a new, inviting home office.
PS. I found the fabric that I want to use in my home office at Spotlight this week. It matches my website beautifully, which was not the original intention.
