What do you have too many of in your home?

We have far too many clothes hangers, and although I cull them from time to time, they evidently breed in the airing cupboard and in the wardrobes.

We also have far too many pairs of scissors, I don't know where they all come from.

What do you have too many of?

Coat hangers. Wow, wish I could find some of them. They're obviously procreating in the corner

There's no such thing as too many books!

We have far, far, FAR too many toy cars. Over 500 at the last count, and DS will not part with a single one of them.

Everything. So much stuff everywhere. I drives me insane.
I think our scissors must have all come to live at your house though, could I have a couple of pairs back?? grin

Argh, my house eats coat hangers, send them my way!
We have way too many mugs. People just keep buying them for us, and we really have enough.

Books (hundreds), cats (four) and Lego.

Bike parts 😠😠
DH is an older aged man clad in Lycra
The plus side is he disappears for hours from under my feet
The down side is all the bloody bike parts he 'needs' and leaves lying about

We have hundreds of books but i dont believe you can have too many. Our spare room is practically a library.

Rolls of wrapping paper
“Old” stuff - eg old towels, old bedding, old clothes, old wellies... might come in handy one day (that day rarely comes!)

I have loads of handcream and moisturiser. I also have loads of books but I don't consider that a problem grin Also loads of different types of tea for some reason!

sparkly I had loads of old sheets and towels and was able to donate them to a local cat rescue...might be an option? They go through a lot of them I was told.

Letters. That are too important to go in bin, but not important enough to file away safely.

From my sons school. Telling me something that is months away so must be kept.

So many letters.

At the moment - toilet rolls.

Lego and soft toys. Old toys & clothes to be sorted for charity/selling on. Exercise equipment no-one uses.

SparklyLights Wed 13-Dec-17 14:09:59

Bear hunt - great idea. I will ring around. They would be great for that as although not scrappy, I think they are not perfect enough for charity shop (the odd pull etc). Cats rescue idea is super.

Although I’d have to get someone else to drop them off for me as I’d likely come back with a couple of cats if I go there! (No joking, I really would!)
