For most of my adult life I have lived by the mantra 'a cluttered house is a cluttered mind'. I have always felt more at peace when my house is in order. However, since the arrival of my second daughter, just over a year ago, I simply have not had the time and the junk has slowly accumulated.

This week I decided to change all that and the de-cluttering has begun! So far this week I have cleared over 100 items from my wardrobe and half a dozen shoes, all of which are now listed on trade me. I have cleared a dozen books from the girls book box and given them to charity. I have sorted all the girls current clothes and put 2 bags worth in the charity clothing bin. I have dumped 2 bags of junk from both my bathroom and laundry cupboards.

I think I am on a roll!


  1. I know exactly what you're saying and feel a lot more 'at peace' when there is tidiness in my home.

    Thank you for introducing me to trade me, i'm off to explore it now.

  2. Go Lou - it is liberating to lose all that doesn't serve you in this moment.

  3. I LOVE clearing out clutter! I think it is one of the best feelings. We have gotten rid of so much this year on craigslist and freecycle. The rest has gone to goodwill! Good job, mama!

  4. Isn't it so refreshing to purge your house of all the "extras"? I love that feeling :)

  5. Wow that's impressive. I which I could be as good as you are at clearing out! I am trying though.

  6. and it feels so good.

    Wonderful post!
