Some of the things I have here at the flat are just not going to fit into my new place so I have been having a bit of a selling spree on Facebook Marketplace. As well as little things, a couple of pieces of my much loved furniture has or is going.
My bureau went to a nice guy first thing this morning at the bargain price of £35.
And then later, as soon as we had picked it up from the storage unit I listed the lovely old gate-leg table. For the £50 it cost me a few years ago it has served us well and now it's time for someone else to enjoy it. If I had been back home in Wales when Alan was packing things up it wouldn't have even made the journey ... like so much of our stuff, but it was here and stored before I even knew about it.
Now that Alan's house is completely carpeted and curtained we will be moving all the stuff from the storage units and putting things into his 'blue room'. Once there we can go through things a bit more carefully and just put into our spaces the things we really want to keep or think that we need.
I am on a continuous decluttering journey and to be honest I think over the first few months of living in my new much smaller space this will continue. There's really no point in keeping anything that 'might come in handy one day' ... especially if it hasn't up to now!!
