Today is the first day of October. Autumn is well and truly here. Our heating just came up for the first time since last winter, so the chill is definitely in the air. I have been seriously thinking of decluttering the home this autumn. I am thinking of doing some minor redecorating, and I need to let a few things go. There are also a few minor home repairs that need to be done in time for winter.
I have been online searching for the right people to get the job done. I recently came across Rocburn – The Window Opener Specialist, and I will most likely be contacting at some point to get a quote.
However, before I get into the repairs, I need to get the house decluttered. Clutter gives me a headache, so the junk has to go. Once the unwanted items go, I have the space to breathe and think of what to do with the space I have.
I have 3 categories for everything we got, and each item has to fit into a category.
Anything worth keeping will be kept. Majority of my items fall into this category which is a good thing. It means I buy just what I need, and not just anything. Having said that, I will be very brutal with this pile. I will be keeping only items I am sure I will be using.
All items that wouldn’t be kept but in a good condition, would be sold or should I say, I would attempt to sell on eBay. I have not listed items to sell on eBay in ages, but I am hoping to find the time and get my selling mojo back. I also wish eBay could make the listing process a lot easier for us sellers.
Give to Charity
I have 3 charity bags ready to go as I type this post, and I would have more by the end of the month. I am forever giving away stuff to charity shops and I enjoy doing so. It is my way of giving back and it helps to declutter my home. What more could a girl ask for?
I plan to sort out piles this week, so I starting with a bang tomorrow. Wish me luck! Are you decluttering the home this autumn? What are your decoration/repair plans for autumn? Please sound off in the comments section, let’s chat.
Thanks for reading, commenting and sharing. Have an awesome week.
