Tomorrow is Day One

It sounds like one of those motivational posters, but actually I'm starting the Simply Clean 7 Day kickstart tomorrow.  Day One is to declutter.  There is no way on this planet that I will be able to do even a token declutter in one day.  The book is chirpily optimistic that I will be surprised how much I can accomplish.  I reserve my judgement on that.  I plan to use the rest of this week at least.  I have a lot of clutter.  Fortunately there is a handy checklist for a whole house declutter at the back.

Part of the problem is that I don't have homes for everything.  If I can just establish a home for everything then it will be a breeze.  As it is I can see me spending the rest of this week just decluttering the dining room.

To be honest, I think the book may be aimed at better housekeepers than me.  It says that just filling a couple of bin bags will make all the difference.  I suspect that two bin bags won't make a dent.  Also the kitchen is FULL as I have a year's supply of pasta amongst other things stashed as the yearly gluten free Tesco sale has ended.

I have a sore leg.  It was a very minor biopsy, but it still stings, so tomorrow I will be taking it steady and working up to more.  Bear was very sweet about my leg, and is checking that all is okay.  It is, but I feel like I've been cuddled better.

  2. I hope your leg feels better soon.
    As for decluttering, it's taken me months, most of my rooms are empty and I'm still taking two or three bags out of the house every day.

    1. I haven't had your challenge (think you are awesome with the boat btw) but while I think the plan is useful, I think the timescales are a teeny tiny bit optimistic! WS x

  3. You have to start somewhere and two bags sound good.

    Glad your biopsy is done and not suffering too much.

    1. You're absolutely right! Two bags is a plausible start. It's great to hear from someone in Wales. Uncle used to live just outside Wrexham. WS x

  4. Hope the biopsy results will be good. Rest that sore leg and take it easy. Declutter in stages. Maybe do one room at a time. Good luck!
