Tower of Clutter

Have you ever heard of the tower card? Years ago I was with a group of friends and we had our tarot cards read. I’m not saying that this is a good or bad thing, just that it happened. I wasn’t paying attention, to be honest, but I do remember one card that came up. […]

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 […]

My sincere apologies

I’ve had so many setbacks since my last post. Not with clearing up my house by blogging it.   I have however starting using the hashtag #clearingupmyhome on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook etc. Now I just have to find a way to include that into this site and I’ll be laughing.

Today marks the anniversary of the first year living in this house.

Made it to my target this week. I set myself a goal of listing seven items onto eBay this week. It is now Thursday evening and I am really tired but nine new items have been listed today. I didn’t manage to make a start last week because my daughter broke her foot and so […]

I always seem so surprised that there is progress

It’s nearly a year since we have lived in this house. And I still feel like I’m losing the battle with the room of doom.  I do however now have a desk in there and have more access to many things that I am (too) slowly listing onto eBay. Doesn’t look great does it. It […]

Cleaning service

A friend, Carrie, needed money towards her holiday and as a joke I said I’d pay her to come and clean my house.  Well after a while it seemed to make sense. Trying to deep clean, decorate and have little helpers all in one day is quite a task.

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 […]

Wall art sold plus few other stuff went

I’ll be honest I haven’t made any effort on clearing out in over a week. Mainly because of the hassle I received with the baby swing and didn’t expect to get anywhere because of it. Someone must be watching over me because the items I had left on eBay, all but two sold. I’ve been […]

What a day… So yes all these ‘baby’ items must go.

Besides it being Friday 13th. And I had to look after my friend’s children, so that was my two little girls plus another two little girls in my house and trust me when I say “loud” wasn’t the word. Could not hear myself think.

Wow so it’s a big day for the room of doom

This week sold a dress and it was great to see it go. As it had been hanging around for nearly two years. The room of doom Well today and cupboard and chest of drawers are going over to a friend’s house. The problem: they are situated at the other end of the room. The […]
