I have been reading Elaine's blog at Mortgage Free in Three for some time now, and she is always sensible and inspirational! This weekend, she has been sharing some videos from Jack Black of Mindstore. I watched the first two and got inspired to have a thorough chuck out!
I challenged myself and thought it would be a good aim to clear 1000 items out of the house in 2015.
I think I shall be re-negotiating that target with myself very shortly as I started only yesterday with my bedroom, and already 178 things have new destinations - the hallway looks like a left-luggage area with bags ready to be packed in to the car for taking to the charity shops, to the dump and to friends who I know will appreciate odd items, like the FH's Bond DVDs which are going to a wee friend who used to like to borrow them!

Twelve more items added to the pile this morning, so I think I may have to go for the 1000 items by the end of January!
I talked to the YFG about this and we agreed that the overall target is that there are 1000 fewer items in the house by the end of the challenge, so for every non-consumable item that comes in, two have to go out. Makes me think harder!
My bedroom is transformed already - and I love it!
