I have good news, I found my kindle fire in a box of jumpers I was sorting out. It has been missing for 2 months. I don't have to use the kids' one anymore. Which brings me nicely to this week's change.

Week 39 - Control Your Clutter

This week, your change is to declutter, organize, and simplify your environment. This may sound easy, but for many, it isn't. Over time, we tend to accumulate a lot of stuff, including things we may not even want, or in other terms, "junk." For most of us, when we are confronted with making the decision "to keep or not to keep," it's always easier to keep. And so, before you know it, the whole house is filled with the kept things you never use, look at, or even remember.

This will definitely take me more than a week!!

I'm pretty ruthless at throwing things out, we just don't have the space but it's hard finding the time. I'm thinking of moving next year so I've been making headway with this. I'd love a clear, organized home.

I haven'y long moved, so I'm pretty clutter free, but it is creeping up and I shall have a cull this week.
Thank you for the link smile

Oh yes yes! I've been working away a lot and the clutter that's accumulated in my absence is ridiculous. It could probably all happy go to the charity shop and no one would miss it.

Also my husband goes through phases of having fish, deciding he is a potter/fisher/baker and we end up with lots of unused stuff. Maybe I should take up selling hobbies in a box wink

Arrgghh, Stellar that sounds so familiar, nothing actually changes, we just get a new set of props!

I can honestly say I have no clutter here whatsoever.
We've been staying in a caravan while our house is renovated.
I packed for a 3 week multi weather holiday thinking we'd be here 8/9 months.
14 months and no definite moving date yet.
Patience is wearing thin!

Am looking forward to aquiring some clutter - send all yours to me for safe keeping grin

BBB my friend has just moved into half her home after 4 years in a caravan with two DC and 2 dogs. It's been character building! I have the upmost respect for you.

Hello, have been following along but too chaotically busy to post smile last few challenges were fine for me though.
This one is a slow but quietly getting there one. You wouldn't want to see our garage!
