Today we gave away our first chook eggs!   I wonder if that counts as decluttering?

Talking of decluttering Jessica spent 1 1/2 hours decluttering our Junk Room Hobby Room .  This room continues to challenge us so it needs Jessica’s talents yet once again.  She says that each time it gets to be a mess she doesn’t feel very appreciated – good point – so we must try and keep on top of it.  This time I got her to pull everything that we don’t want in the room out into some empty floor space we have in our "Entry".  She then swept the floor and left the room looking tidy.  Can’t say the same for our Entry!!

She then sifted and sorted, bagged and tossed stuff – STUFF!!  We have about 8 bags (grocery bags) of things that belong to other people.  I have enough trouble with our own stuff let alone caring for someone elses!!!  LOL.  So come Thursday I plan to do a run around town to deliver all these bags.  One is for the hospital – some toys Nomi wants to donate, one is for the Salvation Army, one is for us to post to people in far away places!   The other bags are for friends – hand me downs, books, water bottles, games, videos – all sorts of stuff.  3 boxes are for the local homeschool group – if they don’t want these things then I think I’ll be tossing them!

Jessica spends about 2 hours a week where I pay her for her labours.  I have decided to put her skill and motivation to good work.  She is going to spend the rest of the year decluttering for me.  First is the Hobby Room (floor space attacked today, cupboards for next week).  Then there is my craft cupboard which has not really been touched since we started homeschooling.  Then there is the laundry cupboard which I am sure is ineffective storage.

My next task will be to order some new bookcases.
