As spring is quickly approaching, I though it’s about time I did that, very much overdue, spring cleaning. I’m one of those people that starts out with good intentions every year to do a spot of spring cleaning, but never finish it to the extent I want to. I will admit, I am a bit of a hoarder. I just don’t have anywhere to put anything! Throughout the year I make small attempts to remove some of this clutter, but I just can’t bare to part with it. But it actually gets me to the stage where i’m just fed up with all of the clutter, and that’s why this spring I have decided to do, Project Spring Clean. I wanted to call it something much fancier but, for now Project Spring Clean will do. One thing I seem to collect a lot of is magazines and bits of paper with various things on, even though I’ve either read them, not read them, I just seem to accumulate a lot of these. I wanted to write todays post on this because it’s something that I desperately need to do. I thought if I write it on my blog, I am more likely to get on and do it, (I hope.)
I think one of the main reasons I always end up leaving it, is because I just don’t know where to start. Some of the things I do want to keep, I just don’t know what to do with them. I know that there is so much stuff that can just be thrown away/sold/given to charity. So I’m just going to have to part with things I really do not need. For example, it’s like clothes, I still have clothes from when I was younger, that definitely no longer fit me. But last year I did put together quite a lot of bag full’s of clothes to give to charity and sell. I suppose that’s made it a little easier for me to sort through my wardrobe. I also have odd bits of makeup dotted around in draws from years and years ago, that can definitely go.
A few things I have been doing the last couple of years, is to make sure I don’t buy products that I am not going to use, or use a little of and then waste it. Same with makeup, I try and only buy makeup that I know I am going to wear.
I would love to know if you are doing a ‘Project Spring Clean’ and if you have any tips and advice that would make doing this much easier.
