November is drawing to a close and my 30 Day Declutter is almost up, just 5 more days to go. Ummm where exactly did this month go? I had a bit of a wibble when it came to clearing stuff out this week, I’m not really sure why. I wanted to surround myself in stuff and not let any of it go but after I gave myself a good talking to that feeling passed and I got back on the declutter horse. What feels like tonnes of paperwork whizzed through the shredder and my linen closet was reduced to the essentials, lots more to go but I’m feeling positive and upbeat without these items clogging up my life.
Reclaiming my life back from the junk has been such a huge positive. I’m not really the kind of person who talks like that but really, truly and honestly ploughing myself into decluttering stuff and people from my life has made my life my own again and I’m enjoying it at long last.

Only five items left to go until I reach my 90 items target. I have great plans to declutter under the beds, which are currently home to my skinny clothes, so I have my weekend filled and no doubt my target well and truly leap-frogged over.
