Let the decluttering begin ...

So first it was Janine, then the program on TV 'The Big Stuff' and today it was the topic on Oprah. So not only the latest trends owls and cupcakes but there is also 'decluttering' - LOL!
Well I started my own - yesterday the storage cupboard in the hallway, the kitchen pantry, Emma's toybox and half my wardrobe ... still have that suitcase of old clothes to sort through!
The one thing I have picked up on is that when you buy something - you get rid/sell/giveaway something else. So this takes me to my huge pile of magazines! Have decided to keep only a small selection, all the others have to go ... but I am going to cut out all the pics that inspire me and put them into a folder. So that will be tonights job while watching tv ...

Put together a couple of layouts last night, just have to add titles, so will add photos soon. :)

Go you! Well done on getting so much "decluttered". It seems a few of us have been doing that lately. I have done the entire playroom (with the boys' help, it was actually quite fun and they were sooo good about giving things away they no longer played with) and my wardrobe ... now I need to tackle my own magazine piles! SCARY!! I like your idea of cutting out the inspirational pics/articles, so you may have "enabled" me, LOL!

Seems like we are all doing it. Good luck with the magazines but I don't think I could ever bring myself to cutting them up though! LOL

Don't do the TV watching bit either [very often] ... decluttering, well I've been doing that as a result of the big move ... but I DO NOT WANT to declutter stuff in my scrap room, cos as soon as it goes you know that you really did need it ... honest!!! In saying that, I have been doing a little bit!!!
