While my computer is out of action I decided to tidy up all the wires at the back of my desk. It took two hours because it all needed a good clean too. Doing this has spurred me on to do a bit more decluttering. But what is clutter and what is stuff I know I'll be using - sometime! Last year I gave quite a lot of craft items to a friend's daughter, things that I knew she would use. I don't want to give things to people who I know won't use them because then it's just shifting the clutter to someone else's house. This oftens happens to me, someone will think that I can use some item that they can't bring themselves to throw away, often I end up throwing it away for them! I have a storage box (or two) full of rubber stamps. Most have been used well but rubber stamping is something I don't do anymore. Ok, they can go, but where? I'm thinking of selling them at a car boot sale but where do I keep them until I have enough stuff collected to make it worth while. It needs to be out of my craft room. I have an almost full set of Lace (pronounced Lassie) cutting templates, they cost me getting on for £100 - how much would I get for them? But if I'm not going to use them why keep them? Then there is all the backing paper I've accumulated. Some I'm just sick of the sight of, but who would want it? Should I try to sell it too? It goes on and on. I might just end up throwing it all in the bin. That's what I do when I feel totally overwhelmed by clutter. My craft room is embarrassingly cluttered. I don't think this type of hoarding applies to me because the rest of my house is quite organised. I think the first step is to take out of my craft room all the things that I know I don't want to do anymore - like those rubber stamps for a start.
