Thanks for your patience while I was on nursing duty. The good news is that my mother has vastly improved. The bad news is that I’m now back home after 9 weeks of bachelor habitation. The lemon tree has died of neglect (although the succulents did survive the experience). There are 889000 messages on the answerphone. The stack of paperwork is taller than the 5 year old. I’m scared to look much further.
The first step in any big clean up and declutter project is to take a deep breath and DON’T PANIC. There is no way I can get this place back in shape in a day, so I’m not going to try.
I’m going to start in the bathroom, because there isn’t THAT much to do in the bathroom, and slowly move on from there.
So today’s declutter challenge is to simply START on the bathroom. We aren’t even going to try to declutter, just
a) throw out any obvious empty bottles and packets that are laying around
b) put the toilet rolls in the bin
c) empty the rubbish bin
d) throw the towels in the wash if they need it.
e) add toilet paper, shampoo and toothpaste and new toothbrushes to the shopping list if required.
Give it a go.
If you are in a more advanced state of decluttering, pick a bathroom shelf and go for it!
