Whoopadey woo, I've finally made it out from my piles upon piles and onto the blog to give you the big declutter update. And look at the treasure I've found, a pair of sparkly shoes, which were stashed away in a box on top of the wardrobe. They were placed there for safe keeping, but I forgot where I put them and have spent the last two years scratching my head wondering if I'm going mad.
We only live in a three bedroom house, so there's hardly any room for stuff to go amiss, yet in the last couple of weeks, I've also uncovered one of my favourite umberellas, three more pairs of shoes, an MP3 player and a radio alarm. It really is like Christmas all over again.
Now that I've found my rewards from my decluttering manoeuvres, it's over to you to see what you can find in your own little treasure trove of stuff that's tucked away or piled up high behind every cupboard and door in your home.
Yes, welcome to Week 7 of the Rubbish Diet challenge, where after six weeks of tackling your everyday rubbish, it's time to uncover the things that are wasting away in your clutter hotspots.
You'll find all you need in this week's guide, which is now published online at:
My goodness, can it really be Week 7 already. That can only mean one thing... that there's just one week to go until I ask you to attempt a Zero Waste Week.
Cor blimey! Well, I wouldn't worry about that now, you'll be far too busy working out what to do with the bits and bobs you discover in your big sort out.
And as for me, I'm going to slip on my sparkly shoes and treat myself to a nice glass of wine then read the book that I rescued from a pile of stuff that had been crammed into a cupboard in the bedroom.
You'll never guess what it's called.....here's a clue!
You might snigger but it's never too late. I might have made great progress already but Clare Baker from ClutterClearing writes on her website that as I've kept hold of my clutter for a year, it could take me 3 months to completely clear and organise it. It's worth popping over to see how long yours will take too...assuming you've got some of course.
Oh well, it looks like I'll be busy for another month yet. See you next week then, when I'll be sure to pop up for air!
