I'm getting nowhere with the decluttering.  Needs a new plan. I'm bogged down making flower girl dresses for daughter's wedding.  They need to be nearly finished (ie only hem and some trimming left by 30th Oct when they are to be tried on said girlies).

New plan is think of a number:  5 (for example) and by the end of the day, I must have cleared 5 items from a particular room. Of course, it'll be easy to start with, but then get harder as time goes by. However, I'll be nearer getting the dresses finished so I should be able to spend more time decluttering.

I'm too old for this "prioritising" lark!  :rolleyes:

5 boxes of electronic clutter to go to Currys tomorrow. (Unrelated to above post! It's just the number of boxes I have)

Hedgehog - Could you set up a 'rule' whereby if an item hasn't been used in n months it has to justify its existence or go? Don't try that on the Christmas decorations though... :lol:
