I sometimes read the blog of Kate in the U.K., a fellow participant in the Cotton Robin. On May 1st she wrote:
For the past couple of years, I've been doing a decluttering exercise in May - clearing out bits and pieces, using the kind of fun technique of getting rid of one thing on the 1st, two on the 2nd and so forth. It's a nice way to motivate a clear out, so I decided to do it again this year, starting with the junk drawers in the kitchen. So this is the first item. I sort of know what it's for, but we don't need it. Off it goes!

I have the highest intentions and have thought of it since then. Coming back from a month-long trip on the 28th June didn't help. My intentions were for July. Didn't happen. August? I will try!!!

Today is the first. This went! If you can't play it, you don't need to keep it. 

I did shoot myself a bit in the foot though. As you might have read in the previous blog that we have a new pantry. The old was emptied etc ... and a lot was thrown away then. But I didn't want to keep it just so that I could claim it as "declutter" this month. I am positive there will be more.

  1. Something that definitely needs to be done in the Shook house. Maybe you will inspire me.
