I read this book last week, it really is inspiring ...well it spurred me into action anyway.
All this year I've been decluttering and entering the things that have left the house on the to page at the top of the Blog, but I had ground to a halt recently. I guess I was uninspired ... so this book was just what I needed.
Of course it would be wrong to keep it for myself, I've read it, absorbed the gist of it and have now sprung back into action going through cupboards and taking the things I find to the local charity shop in Llanrwst. I don't even know what they raise funds for but those that they help no doubt need the money that my things will get more than I need the things.
After all I should take more notice of this little box that permanently lives on my sidebar!!
I am determined to, at the very least reach my target of 365 things gone by the end of the year.
One giant declutter that has just happened is one of our cars.
We have had three cars for a while now, for very good reasons ..... but the Corsa died a very un-dramatic but untimely death on the motorway last week, losing all power and then stubbornly refusing to work at all. Leaving Lovely Hubby stranded for a while in the pitch black at the side of the M6, then he was shunted from pillar to post by the AA for almost twelve hours. I will give them credit that when I Tweeted about this the next morning they immediately sprang into action. Paying for one of Lovely Hubby's taxi fares from the garage where they had left him and the car to his digs and then onto work, and also extending our membership for an additional six months. The power of the Tweet!!
So that's us down to a much more manageable and sensible two cars. We worked out that the cost of the repairs to the Corsa, quoted at over £1,200, would be more than enough to pay for the additional fuel that the Mitsubishi uses when compared to the smaller car. And hopefully it will be safer for LH travelling long distances over Winter in the 4x4 and we will save on the car tax and insurance.
This must be the biggest declutter we have done for a while!!
