Coat Hangers

How on earth did I end up with over ninety coat hangers with nothing on them?!?  I have got rid of a lot of clothes but I'm sure it wasn't ninety items.  So where did this lot come from........


They must have been in our wardrobes but I don't know what was hanging on them.  What do you do with coat hangers when you no longer need them I wonder.  I looked through the list of things we are allowed to recycle but coat hangers wasn't on it.  So they'll just have to be thrown away.  The council list of what to recycle made me realise how few things are on it.  I think we have single-handedly restocked one of the local charity shops though.  A little table we donated was outside the shop today with the price of £19.99 on it, hope it sells for that price, charities like this need all the help they can get just now.

Our sitting room is nearly cleared of all the stuff from the bedroom and we still have a bit of spare storage, partly due to getting rid of stuff and having more shelves.  One thing that is going to be difficult is sorting out the photographs we've taken this last 43 years.  Plus the photographs that belonged to my MIL.  It's going to be tough deciding what to get rid of and what to keep.  But we can't keep them all.

Hi Ann, I had the same idea as Gillie, wouldn't the charity shops take the hangers?

So happy your sitting room almost back to normal. Having a bit more storage is always a good thing. I don't envy you having to sort through photos. I did it sometime back...of course I'm missing photos now that I absolutely know I didn't discard...oh dear!

Same here about the things that can be recycled, a very short list...but thank goodness for charity shops!

Just a thought here with reference to your photos....

If you have a scanner, before you discard any of your photos, scan them onto your computer and save them onto a cd. This takes up far less space AND you will still get to keep those memories.
