I would like to say something.
Even though I decided to start a weekly reverse finds post, I am NOT very good at decluttering / organising / giving things away. Almost every time I attempt to look through our place to get rid of things, I get sidetracked in a pile of memories, or decide it's all too hard and do something else instead. So this post and I have an uncomfortable relationship - I'm so grateful to have it around as a way to force me to face up to my clutter, but I do kind of resent it sometimes too.
I would like to take the organised approach Susan has taken, of going through one cupboard at a time - and I WILL next week, I think - but I ran out of time again, so this week I took the approach of randomly looking through cupboards and drawers and looking for the first things I could see that I can easily part with - minimal thought, probably not a great deal of efficiency, but in the end, a pile of things that can leave our place right now... the low hanging fruit.
Some tealight candle holders, a terracotta wine cooler we've only used once, some christmas spreading knives, shoes thatI can't even remember wearing (maybe bridesmaid shoes? maybe they belonged to one of my sisters?), long retired bags, and a little pile of clothes and pillowcases.
If you'd like to join with a reverse find of your own (and as you can see, the standards do not have to be high!), add your link in below.
(PS Susan - it was great to meet you too! and I'm already dreaming up a vintage sheet softie to make for Mirabel!)
