Now I’m on maternity leave I’m beginning to notice the house more and just how much rubbish we have. Mu husband will tell you it’s treasured possessions, I will tell you that a lot of it is junk! The post I wrote for Five Things Friday: Decluttering inspired me to get on with it in our home. The thought of tackling the entire house scared me and I couldn’t think where to even start so I took inspiration from the first link in my post to create my own decluttering programme.
I decided it was all very well doing an initial declutter but we’d need to revisit things throughout the year so that we’d keep on top of it. I created this timetable of places to sort and included some of the larger cleaning jobs. I then wrote each item in my planner on a Sunday so that I could complete it at any time during the week (normally working around Baby T’s naps) and have the satisfaction of ticking it off! I love being able to do that – almost more than the newly decluttered space!
