I’m taking part in Carla’s January No/Low Spend @ Decluttering Challenge, find all the details here
My Personal Goals for the challenge:
My de-cluttering goal is to clear our tiny box room. I’ve kept quite a bit of stuff in there for when my youngest daughter sets up a home, and/or to donate, and next month it’s happening (sniff): My ‘baby’ is moving into a flat with her boyfriend and anything not passed on will be donated. I also hope to have a de-cluttered spare bedroom…which I can then decorate in February.
Week one of the challenge and my goal was to just start! I took a ‘before’ picture of the box room (from the doorway as you can’t get in there!), and then set to work on a bag of clothes. I’ve set aside the items I’m not sure about (my daughters), and everything else will be taken to the recycling centre.
I’m hoping to get a lot more done tomorrow!
*MY NO/LOW SPEND GOAL
For the finance part of the challenge my goal will be: No Personal Spending. At all. No books, no coffee’s, no exceptions. I will only ‘spend’ on budgeted expenses. We don’t have any birthdays coming up, or any outings planned (I hibernate in January), so it’s a great month to do it. I will be spending some money helping K out with her move, but that will be in the budget.
So far, so good with this part of the challenge. But January is only 5 days old lol and I’m still feeling very spoilt from the Christmas period – I have a few lovely books to read and a Buffy Boxset to watch! – so we’ll have to see how it goes.
If you’re taking part in the challenge, how are you doing? Have you made any progress with your decluttering?
As always thank you to Carla for organising us
PS. If you’re lovely enough to have No More Spending on your Blogger blogroll I would be really grateful if you could update your link to this site. It means deleting the old one (which doesn’t work), and then re-installing the new one (here). I’m really sorry to cause you extra work.
