This week we did some serious downsizing. Our local Debra charity shop has a great service where you can organize a time for them to collect furniture from your home which = perfect for us as we don’t have a car.
The old chair in our bedroom was the first on my list. I had planned on revamping it years ago, but just never did. I hope by sending it to greener pastures it will force us to hang up our clothes, as opposed to what we’re currently doing; seeing just how much clothes we can pile onto it before it breaks. We’re also waving goodbye to our DVD and game shelves; I found a more discrete place to hide our favourite flicks, so we have no need for our shelves anymore.
Massive added bonus – we have our spare bedroom back! Our poor spare bedroom had been our dumping ground for years. For college it hid portfolios, architectural drawing boards, samples and college work. It’s been covered in teapots, teacups, dresses and hydrangeas in preparation for our wedding. And also stored everything we’ve planned on giving away to charity shops, so opening the door to our messy spare bedroom induced heart palpitations for a long time. That is, until this week. YES.
