The latest craze Decluttering

Over the last few months I have been going through the house and trying to declutter - having gathered up so much over the years and taking up hobbies and crafts adds to the number of items that are stored away in cupboards under tables in shelving and so on.  I was interested to read about the  Marie Kondos ideas and the fad she has created.  One point she mentions is not to go room by room but by items now that did make sense to me.  As I set out to clean out particular cupboards and some how ended up bogged down on how to sort and what to do with all the variety of items.  So yes item by item makes a lot of sense.  I am not sure how I would go with her folding tecnique's maybe too time consuming or maybe one would get use to it, the idea being that items are folded many times which reduces creasing and then stored upright saving space.  This included underwear, singlets, t-shirts. nightwear as well as jeans which I hang?? But all food for thought.

So I off to get started in the wardrobe but a reminder after you have de-cluttered you need to decide how you are going to dispose of your items.  One needs to be considerate of the charity stores who are only too happy to take items that are of use but unfortunately, some people are using these charities as rubbish dumps.

Some suggestions from me are

1. Take photo's and sell on line just protect your privacy at all times
2. Offer for free to selling groups in your area on a pick up basis only again protect your privacy at all times.
3. Offer to family or friends
4. If you have sufficient to fill your boot consider a boot sale in your area
5. If you have lots of variety consider a garage sale

Happy de-cluttering but remember if you love an item or it brings you joy don't throw it out.
