30 Day Declutter Challenge – Days 24-30

We did it!! Tomorrow’s post will be a picture of our huge haul and where it all went, plus a review of how we felt about the whole project…… but for now here’s the breakdown of the final few days:


24 Tupperware boxes – every household needs some, but this got a bit out of hand! Still plenty in the cupboard for work lunches, have no fear.

25 Accessories – swimwear, hats, gloves, belts, scarves, and everything in between. Some of these have never even been worn – definitely time for a clear out.

26 Fancy dress items – I’ve finally decided I’m a grownup post-uni and need to clear out my massive fancy dress collection. Don’t worry – I’ve kept one pair of fairy wings and a few other bits in case of fancy dress emergency, but things were getting a bit out of hand!

27 (at least) crafting items – my craft box has been growing as long as I have and I’ve never really done a review of it. As a kid I used to make lots of presents and cards for my parents so hoarded everything remotely sparkly or creative. However, I think if the need occurred at this point I could scrape together enough pocket money to buy felt rather than saving it – happy grownup days! Defnitely a satisfactory clear out. I didn’t really know how to count this one as there’s so many little scraps so I’ve just thrown it in at 27, but it’s 4 stuffed carrier bags so think it does the job.

28 hair accessories and jewellery – I never really use any hair accessories, and yet I have a bit of an addiction to buying them – consider this a vow to the end of that era!

29 items of clothing – and not a dent in my wardrobe – shame on me!

30 (more) items of clothing – and yes the wardrobe is still going strong. It’s pretty satisfying (and handy) to at least be able to fit everything on hangers though… and even move them along the rail a bit! VICTORY!

Emma @ Do Good and Be the Change (great blog name right?!) has been getting rid of a bag a week – you can read about it here: Week 1, Week 2. She’s giving one to each of her local charity shops which I think is a lovely idea – spread the love! I’d highly recommend checking out her blog for some great eBay tips, and general ethical shopping love.




And….. Nout from Sandpaperkisses is still keeping up with her 1 bag a week, and Cathi is up to date with her ruthless clothing clear out – looking forward to sharing pics of these with you soon!


So, that’s it folks. I’ll do a full evaluation in tomorrow’s final post, but for now… thanks so much for reading – and do it next month – you know you want to!!

    Congrats for sticking it out–and taking it beyond clothing! Great thing to do once a year, or toss-as-you-go, if that’s your style–anything to cut the clutter, clear the mind-space, and move the stuff to someone who can use it. (BTW, I’m taking four more paper grocery bags over tomorrow–and have gotten much more selective in my buying.)
