De-clutter challenge

Hello Wonderful Readers - thank you for dropping in and making sure that I am not (yet) talking to myself. A huge, warm welcome to Jane + Chris, Grace at oldpolicehouse and Lena. If you have been following my blog, you will know that I am doing Carla's "Low (no) spend/Declutter Challenge" - you can find the lovely Carla's details here:


So, in the spirit of sharing, here are the results of this week's work - amazing what a half-term and a house viewing can do?

From this.....

Oh deary me......

and there's worse...............

Ta da ...... it's a miracle!

Thank heavens the view out back needs no tidying!

I am sooo tired and Mr Thrifty has already gone to bed. It took us 3 days, but the viewing went well.  My lovely  Partnership Support Worker from Hearing Dogs came today and left with 7 books and 17 magazines ..... no-one is safe!!!

Sleep well dear readers ..... I know I will xx
