Why I drink cold coffee ☕

It seems that whatever I do. I seem to be chasing my tail. Laundry is continuous, I’m constantly making food and then clearing up. I never seem to stop. Dishes to be done and then put the away. Tidying up the toys after the kids play. So when do I get a chance to sit […]

What I’ve come to realise

On the 22nd February 2016 will mark the two years that I have been on this downsize, declutter and new way of approach to things and stuff. I look around my house and see so much still here and how I haven’t made any progress. Then something happens like my eldest daughter gets ill. TMI […]

Cardboard city

So I sell items on eBay right? I also get a lot of deliveries from various companies. Be it nappies or other household essentials that I buy in bulk to save money in the long run. All come in good sized cardboard boxes. Which have been stored ready to send other items in. Problem is […]

Need to move on with planning and doing

Day 59 : I’ve listed more stuff up on eBay but I still haven’t managed to make a solid plan to get on with the massive task to ‘actually’ clearing out everything. There seems to be so many things happening at once and today all I have managed to do is two loads of clothes […]
