Decluttering 365

This year I am taking a leaf out of another bloggers book, Sue from Our New Life in the Country has done this challenge and I am going to give it a go myself.

The goal is to make a record of at least 365 items that leave my possession to go on to further use with someone else, sent to the charity shop, gifted or sold.
Seems as I have to move both my home and workshop very soon this will be a useful thing for me to do, so lets see how it goes!
1.  Three seat cushions (2 of which I have just seen in the charity shop being used by the ladies that work there to make their chairs comfy, hopefully the shop 'bought' them!)
2.  A pair of boots
3.  A number of items of clothing although I am not sure what as I dropped the bag off in the charity shop before I could change my mind, I know there was one of my favourite jumpers in there that really needs to find a new home!
4.  Various items of clothing to the recycle bin including shoes.
5.  A couple of kick start diet books, along with a 'how to bake cakes and biscuits' book!
6. Hob from flat which I have at last replaced because the knobs didn't work properly!
7. Mini camping gas stove and 2 spare bottles.
8. and 9. Two fleecy jackets
10. Pair of 3/4 length trousers

15. and 16. Two tops
17. Selection of balls and dog toys that George has as spares, taken to animal ambulance shop to sell or for the dogs themselves.
18. Pair of old curtains.
19. Trainers, so comfy, so well worn, so falling apart, they had to go!
20. Gardening gloves, too many holes and a bit too big.
21. Selection of part done puzzle books, taken by a lady who will no doubt have way more brain cells than I and will be able to finish all the ones I didn't even manage to start!

  1. Well done, will be following with interest. As I didn't get to the magic number of 365 mine has rolled over to this year and I still have over eighty items to banish from my life :-)


Thank you for your comments, I do read them all and sometimes I even reply, now that I have figured out how to! Thanks again, take care x
