Re: SPRING-Clean Declutter - Need Help

I was going to call the scrap metal place about a few items. Did not think of that. Have 2 old trailers among other things that I was going to refurbish. Couple of old mowers. May as well add the oven if they want it.

I was going to put on gumtree but that got out in the top hard basket lol. Hate have to deal with strangers and people who never show up as arranged. 

Re: SPRING-Clean Declutter - Need Help

As our decluttering journey continues, last night I managed to fill 2 wheelie bins out of our kitchen and darling this morning took a boot load to the salvos). Today I was working on my shed and filled a trailer to go to the dump. Estimate another 2 to 3 trailer loads to sort for the dump and have a trailer load to burn and trailer load of giveaways and another trailer full of scrap metal (including the old dead trailer) of scrap metal to be picked up. Recon there will be another full day just in the shed. (Its only a 9x7m shed) . 

I cant believe the stuff I have kept in there. Have a problem with letting go of things as simple as packaging. Was really quite embarrassed when I was going through everything but motivated at the moment so pushing on while I can. I will probably regret some of what has gone but once it is gone it is gone. My darling has been supporting me and encouraging me which has helped.

Re: SPRING-Clean Declutter - Need Help

Not gone yet @Darcy but they will accept it gladly.  I have an old trailer I am in the process of filling up so they can take trailer and all. 

Probably a good truck load to get rid of. Have  a collection of mowers also as well as white goods. 


Re: SPRING-Clean Declutter - Need Help

Hoping to get rid of it all tomorrow if I can get it together in time for an afternoon pickup. 

Re: SPRING-Clean Declutter - Need Help
