Clearout Challenge: Winter 2021

 So I sit here after an easy weekend. A chilled not on my phone too much weekend. And it dawned on me that a clear out and cleanse is what I needed to start of this month. So I set my self a challenge the 10 day challenge. Cleansing a different space within my home.  


Going through all my shoes and looking at the ones I don’t wear anymore. Those I didn’t go to to wear and those I don’t like anymore and are not my style. If they are in a great condition I may put them up on a site so others can use from time to time.

I have drawers full of lipsticks and mascaras that I don’t use anymore. Some open and others unused. My Aunt loves my make up so if I don’t want it anymore and it’s in good condition I will give it to her. If not I will send unused and unopened items to Wigs for heroes.

Because I do a clothing clear out regularly there was not much I needed to get rid of. However there are a few pieces left on my EBay Depop and Vinted.

Really trying to streamline everything around me. This is a tricky one to clear out because I do feel books are a form of learning. I appreciate the art of reading as an adult but I didn’t as a child that’s for sure. Needless to say managed to get rid of a few books.

As it becomes cooler. I had been sorting out the accessories in which I use and those I haven’t used in a year. Looking at some of the colours and the quality of the items. I was only able to get rid of one accessory which I added to the ‘charity ‘ pile. Reselling a small item like a purse which is in great condition could be someone else’s present.

The Work space
My clear out included clearing out the work space. I receive many notebooks over the year and I but a few more too. This means I have an abundance of them, had to get rid of many that I I found didn’t suit my office style. Curating a space is just as important as clearing out a space.

As it gets closer to the festive period, sometimes I have this overwhelming feeling that I have too much stuff. Flower vases, half burnt candles and stored away ornaments. I get flowers regularly so I have beautiful vases around the home but realised some of which are not my style. So guess what? Getting rid. These types of items though unless someone I know wants it will go to the charity shop.

When I say gifting I mean anything that is wrapping paper, tags and cards. I collect cards in particular because you never know when you will need one. I usually get a load from the card factory. Sometimes I keep cards that are addressed to myself. Once I decide to get rid of them I keep the front cover and rip of the personal message. Collect the front covers and I may use it on my vision board or use it as part of an activity in my professional job.

Just like the clothing I follow the rule that if it’s not my style and doesn’t fit me, I’m getting rid. Underwear will be thrown but pyjamas will be given to charity depending on what state it’s in.
I’m a plain simple to wear kind of a woman. Feeling feminine and pretty but comfortable is my vibe whilst choosing pyjamas.

What to do next....
I love a declutter and cleanse. I tend do do this every few months especially when I feel uninspired. Also when I feel like I’m losing weight some clothes don’t look the same on me so a declutter is what I need. But a declutter is also a great time to see what you have. Familiarising myself with what’s in my possession means that I can be more strategic with what I buy and what I add to my wish lists. Next year I move into creating a more curated wardrobe.
I may put my items on:

How are you getting ready for the festive period? What do you intend to get rid of in the next few weeks?
