Here are some wise words from Spendwisemom
Cat’s Meow’s thoughts on skimming the surface of clutter.
Kimberley believes in quality over quantity.
Gotta love this comment from Jane she said it the way I think it. Sadly I feel inclined to be slightly more diplomatic at times ~although I can get a little cheeky ~ but God bless you Jane you just said it how it is.
Cindy particularly like this comment for Ideealistin in response to her post “Don’t let “Value” Fool You”
Favourite Web Finds. Happy reading!
Here is some more simple yet helpful advice from Mohamed at Midway Simplicity.
Just for the fun of it I am adding a link this week to the auctions I have going on ebay. You can amuse yourself by checking there progress occasionally and keep your fingers crossed that I sell everything at higher than the starting price. Please, if you live in Australia, don’t be tempted to buy any of it. 😉
It is good to see I am not the only blogger repeating the same message over and over again. This message is worth being reminded of over and over again.
Here is a great article with tips on how to get rid of your stuff including getting it valued before selling.
Today’s Mini Mission
Round up all your hair accessories ~ These tend to end up scattered all over the place making them impossible to find when you need them. They end up in school bags, handbags, bathroom drawers, bedside cabinets, in the little nooks and crannies in the car, sports/gym bags, coat pockets and even under the sofa cushions. I own four hair clips but at the moment I only know where two of them are and they aren’t my favourite two.
Today’s Declutter Item
This little storage container was no longer needed. It is roughly 9″ x 5″ x 2″ (230 x 130 x 50mm) and was full to capacity with pens. How many pens does one household need. The bulk of the pens were decluttered long ago and this container moved down into the pantry. It wasn’t getting used so off to the thrift store it went.
Something I Am Grateful For Today
My little boy turned 21 today (now yesterday). That is almost two more years than we thought we would have him to love and cherish after his terrible accident in 2010. Words can not describe how grateful I am to be able to celebrate this day.
