I’m moving house in 3 weeks so my husband and I are using this as an opportunity to just get rid of everything we don’t need/never use.
Normally I just give things to charity when I have a bit of a clear out, but while we have partially done that we’ve also sold some things. Went through the drawer under the TV and made about £150 on eBay with stuff from there.
Sold at my first car boot sale last weekend too (though never again- it was absolutely terrifying!!).
And now spending today with a couple of trips to the tip getting rid of things from the garage and our old lean-to.
Have yet to start on my studio but it’s pretty organised anyway so that will mainly involve just packing things away.
Fortunately in a weeks time I break up for 2 weeks of October half term, so will hopefully just spend that time packing things up!
I am very excited though- but I’ve got to say having a total clear out is really refreshing!! I love the feeling of going through a room and just getting rid of things that have occumulated. I didn’t actually think we had that much stuff- but apparently I was wrong.
I think I am going to make a habit of having a ruthless clear out about once a year once I’ve moved. Though new house doesn’t have as much storage so hopefully it won’t be as much of an issue.
Anyone else enjoy having a total clear out?! Do you find you just end up hoarding things without realising?
