When I’m not busy singing with Pop Chorus or making films for my YouTube channel – I spend my days racing against time to get my house decluttered ready to have it altered so my mum can come and live comfortably with us.
I’m really not good at decluttering though! I’m terrible because I get so sidetracked by every tiny thing and so stuff goes backwards and forwards between the keep or get rid of boxes about a million times!
So I wrote this after my first real day of decluttering when I spent so long messing around with stuff I was finding, I really didn’t get very far. I wonder how many people can relate!
I’d love you to tell me but no matter what I do, I can’t get my comment section to work since I disabled it when I didn’t have time to deal with comments.
I’ll try again – but if it doesn’t work, you can always contact me via the contact form and I’ll try to find a way to publish your comments. Yay – it works!
I hadn’t checked the discussion box at the top of the page!
Shout out to Melinda of Purple Slob In Recovery who is the Queen of Clean and Jen at The Hidden Hoarder who also knows the decluttering struggle really well!
Fun Tip No 1
- Even though you are on a mission to get rid of junk – make sure you find small insignificant things, such as those miniature screw drivers you bought in a charity shop 15 years ago (because they would ‘come in handy’), but never used and spend an hour obsessing over whether you should keep them for another 15 years…or not. Make a game of it! Keep moving them from the ‘Keep’ box to the ‘Charity’ box while singing the chorus of the Hokey Cokey – not forgetting to ‘shake it all about’ at the appropriate moment.
