Dear reader, do you remember me starting the year with swapping my hangers around for 6 months and bit by bit finding what I don't wear in order to have a clear out. Well I have continued through to June. It's not yet the end obviously but I have so far donated 2 bags of clothes to H&M in return for £5 vouchers, which I haven't spent yet.
I've also donated 3 further bags to British Heart Foundation, and purchased from them a skirt, blouse and a dress. I absolutely cannot go in there without finding something worth adding to my wardrobe. Then I feel virtuous as I'm using someone else's castoffs and saving landfill waste.
On Saturday whilst browsing the web I came across the Flylady website here. In the name of house organisation I signed up for daily emails on how to bring order to my closets. On day 1 I was told to make an effort to clean my kitchen sink every evening before bed. By day 2 I had reached the dizzy heights of getting dressed every day. I'm now on day 5. So far I have cleaned my sink, got dressed, gone through my coats and shoes closet (Mr Him donated a pair of trainers to Bhf so a useful exercise - not that I'm saying getting dressed isn't a useful exercise ), removed all, yes all, paper and magazines from the kitchen counter, and removed one notice from the side of my fridge.
I would say I'm engaged with this programme. Mind you I'm getting tons of clutter in my email inbox.
