I’m good at decluttering when I’m preparing to move house but not so good in between.
I had a huge clear out before I moved to mu current house but that was 12 years ago and I desperately need another big clear out.
I’ve been gearing myself up to start with clearing out my wardrobes and drawers - I have too many clothes and shoes that I haven’t worn for ages.
Every time I look at them, I think “maybe there’ll be an occasion to wear this or that” and put them back. I’ve managed to get rid of a lot of office clothes but I still have a wardrobe full of dressy party outfits I keep thinking I may wear again but never do because I end up buying something new for every wedding and special occasion.
After that, I need to have a good sort-out of all the stationery and filing cabinets from my “home office” - I can’t see myself going back to work now, so I must get rid of all my old work-related stuff.
A lot of the paperwork will need shredding so I keep putting it off.
Then there’s all the household stuff that has gradually accumulated in the attic this past 12 years ….
I need a house-clearance guru to motivate me to get stuck in!
