the way I declutter is to remove as much of the things I can, box them up loosely, put them in the garage for a few days and see if I miss anything. If I don't, then I'm happy. Only at that time do I consider selling some... hope this helps you work through your things!

Hi Andrea, well I can understand your buying as most of it is for ebay right? You do sell more than you buy right?
I am living by a new rule that anything new that comes into the house something has to go. I agree with Annie put it away if you don't miss it you don't need it. I was ruthless when we moved and are going to be ruthless again real soon and sell off lots of pieces that I am not using. I have less clutter in this house than any house I have ever been in. Can't stand anything left of the bench and andything not being used. I think you have to be ruthless or open that shop again and sell a lot of it off. Will make you feel so much better I'm sure.

Being ruthless must be in the air at the moment...maybe because we have to move house...but when you have the reality shock that where you may be moving is WAY smaller that you currently live...you start to think of things differently. I have decided to have a resort of all my pretty stuff. When I unpack, if it doesn't make me smile when I first look at it, it's GOING!!!! (Do husbands count in this to, only joking!!!)
Have a great weekend & I hope you are indoors & not out in that horrible HOT weather that we are having.

Hi Andrea just catching up on your posts. How lovely to have your son home even if it was only a flying visit.
Maybe you should have a garage sale and try and get rid of everything in the one hit. Our local Op shops have scored big time from me over the last few months. Decluttering is so hard but has to be done!!
