De-cluttering month

"Clutter is a physical manifestation of fear that cripples our ability to grow" H.G. Chissell


Over the last 9 days I have been working through my list of 30 things that need de-cluttering during February. Last week I was only doing this for 10 minutes a day. It's amazing what you can achieve (and what you are holding onto). I have cleaned out a drawer that was bulging so much that it took a bit of effort to close, my bunch of keys have halved, my make up bag only contains things I use (and suit me) and Scarlett now has one pencil case full of pens that work rather than three containing - amongst other things - blunt crayons and topless felt tips.

Now is the time to raise my game and work on the areas that need a little bit more investment.

So today, I set my phone timer for 30 minutes and focused on the spare room. We rarely have people to stay so the bed has slowly been covered up with Christmas decorations, Scarlett's art, old photos, DVDs, wrapping paper........

Every time I get to the top of the stairs, my eyes go right and I get that sense of doom. I achieved so much in half an hour that I reset my phone and Ta-Dah....... A bed.
