Paul finally managed to clean up and clear out the garage whoop whoop! Now we just need to work out how we are going to empty the utility room whilst temporarily using it for the washing facilities.
Being used to having so much space makes it so bloody difficult when you are asked to make do with far less, it’s certainly given us the chance to sort through our belongings and get rid of a whole load of rubbish.
The kids stayed overnight at my parents house last night, I am hoping that they slept well and didn’t miss us too much. We made full use of the time by raiding their rooms and de-cluttering whilst the kids were blissfully unaware. I have now listed yet another twenty odd items on eBay and have yet more bags for the charity shop.
Don’t get me wrong, kids love toys and I am very happy that my children have plenty to play with but after a while certain toys become redundant, they are no longer used and I see no point in holding onto them as they sit collecting dust. I would much rather pass unused toys and clothes onto someone else that can make good use of them, or make a few pennies on eBay which will then go towards new toys and clothes for the kids.
I love a good clear out, if it were possible I’d live a minimalist lifestyle but with having two kids and a hoarding husband it’s highly unlikely that this will ever happen.
There was however one particular plush bear which I was unable to throw into a charity bag or list on eBay. Linus the bear is apparently worth a fair bit of moolah but still, this wasn’t the reason why I salvaged him from the clear out.
This bear is just far too bloody cute to let go of, he can sit on my Welsh dresser for now until I find him a suitable home.
