30 Day Declutter Challenge – Days 19-23

We’re still at it!


We are becoming throwing-away-ninjas now. It’s so addictive getting rid of stuff – and I’m beginning to doubt that I’ll stop at the end of the month. A few people have asked if we’re on a shopping ban too. Technically not, but it’s actually really self-regulating. When you’re trying so hard to get rid of things it’s not exactly appealing to buy a bunch more stuff in. So far I don’t think we’ve bought anything this month at all. Winning!


So, what did we get rid of over the past few days?

19 fashion magazines (I find it so hard to throw out my old Vogues but I never read them again and they take up so much space – being strong!!). Have kept a few though as my Grandma gave me all her old vintage ones and it was such an amazing gift that I’d like to keep a few from my youth to pass on some day.

Day 19 declutter challenge




20 random items including a TV stand, christmas tree stand, a few things I’ve been meaning to put on eBay but probably never will, and a bunch of stuff from my bathroom cupboard.

21 clothes from my brother – the whole family is getting on board! He had a big clear out and is kindly covering Day 21 for us. What a trooper.

22 random items including 12 books, some board games, and a quality Pop Idol CD. So satisfying to get rid of the random clutter – it’s amazing how quickly you can see a difference on your surfaces and tabletops just from items you can’t ever remember wanting! Even if you don’t decide to take on this challenge yourself, do yourself a favour and throw away a few bags of stuff that you just grab off the surfaces! You’ll never look back.

23 items of clothing plus accessories and a few Christmas nic-naks. AND some large items – a cabinet and a massive mirror. We’re almost there!!

Meanwhile Jane and her family are trooping on – don’t worry about keeping up to date if you’re joining in remotely guys – just stick at it and make it to 30! You can do it 😀 Jane’s got rid of heaps of clothes, and a whole bag of plastic cups. Great progress.

    Great job staying on course. I’ve kept up with the “get rid of 1 big bag per week” deal. I’ve got 1 more bag to go!

    How did you manage to let the awesome Trapdoor game go?! The Pop Idol CD…hmmm well, I can totally understand that! x

      It brought us lots of fun as kids but now it’s time to let someone else enjoy it 🙂

    Hiya! I’m new to your blog but glad I’ve stumbled upon it. I definitely need to join in with this declutter challenge. I’ve worked out that there are certain things that I let clutter up my space in particular and those are…tights, underwear, toiletries and paperwork. I just need to go through and bin almost everything!

      Yay – that’s a great idea! So happy you found me too 🙂 Send in pics of the stuff you get rid of, and maybe even a before and after – would love to share and encourage others to do the same! <3
