I dump everything in our downstairs toilet. It currently houses the vacuum, mop &bucket, some Halloween buckets from last year, a huge box of shoes, a nerf gun, cat food, bags for life, ironing board, a box full of seeds for the garden, the dogs dinosaur toy at about 2 foot tall and the dog died in March but I just can’t bring myself to chuck his favourite toy. My daughter has a huge cupboard where she keeps pretty much the same plus her large freezer and the dogs beds and she calls it the cupboard of doom. Does every house have a cupboard of doom and if you are more organised where do you keep all your crap? I’d love my downstairs bathroom to be a welcoming little haven for guests but new build houses just don’t have any storage for everyday junk like vacuum cleaners etc. This is basically all the junk that would be in the understairs cupboard if we had one, how do you manage?
Yep. We have a utility room and there is a cupboard off that. Going to sort it today. Also reguarly go through drawers but there have filled up again. Jigsaws, DVDs I think a pair of slippers and random crap.
As my house has zero storage, even the loft is useless as the roof design is where you have those timber supports that eat into all space, now my children are getting older it would seem my whole house is the dumping ground.
There is something really liberating about not have a shit tonne of crap dumped somewhere. I used to have a garage, where all the shite lived and when I moved to a smaller place with only one cupboard, other than the kitchen, I had a ruthless de-clutter. Sold every bit of crap I could on ebay or in car boot sales AND got a small skip!!!!!
I'm brutal now, everything has to go somewhere or else leave the premises!
