You may remember from my 2019 goals that I’m setting myself the rather big task in the form of a whole house de-clutter. I’ve also added I’d like to earn £1,000 from the de-clutter. It works out as a room a month which is rather ambitious in my option. Especially since I only have one hour a week allocated for de-cluttering!
We haven’t been in our house longer than one year and yet we already have things pilling up. Neither Mr Fire or I are really big spenders. We frown at Christmas gifts (and usually smile as we know we will re-gift them) and dread birthdays as we don’t really want a big gift. In spite of this, things still end up pilling up and a de-clutter is really needed.
The littlest one has a scary good memory and likes to look at her baby toys from time to time. She remembers what and where they are so she is likely to find it the hardest when I start to de-clutter.

As I’ve said this is rather ambitious but I do like a challenge! It actually feels really good once its done. I’m going to try to sell the items that we end up not needing from the de-clutter so I’m hoping that this extra income will help with the 2019 of overpaying the mortgage!
If you remember in October I made a nice little amount from reselling!
Do you de-clutter? Do you have any tips for getting rid of all the clutter?
