365 day de-clutter

It's a simple theory really and i am going to try my hardest to follow it. I may not be able to give you pictures and descriptions for all the things i say goodbye to but i will try. 

What am i talking about. Well we all have so much "stuff" so much stuff we don't need, i want a happy home and i think over the years i have held onto too much stuff and held some stuff so highly that it can take over. What do we need all this stuff for? 

My rules, over the next 365 days i am going to get rid of one thing each day. If i buy something i am going to get rid of something before i bring the new thing into the home. Stuff isn't what is important any more. I think this de-cluttering exercise will be cleansing and soothing so here goes. 

The first thing to leave my home is a gorgeous tray and bowl set i was given. It comes from Bali and the swirls you can see are actually cinnamon. It smells divine! 

I have NEVER used it, i love looking at it but am too scared to use it because i know i can't clean it like normal trays but can't remember the correct way to clean it. It sits in my cupboard, in darkness. When we moved i put it out on the bench but the bowls soon got filled up with letter box keys, bobby pins and other miscellaneous things. The person that gave it too me is no longer a friend and in fact she turned out to be someone quite poisonous in my life so it is quite nice to get rid of this. 


  1. Thats a good idea. Even if getting rid of it just stps you from thinking of that person everytime you see it. I may have to join in!

  2. Feel free to join in Kate. Am looking forward to it!
