I have been decluttering a lot since the New Year and this week, with help from my OH, we tackled all the family photo's. This was quite a big job as I decided that I wanted to get rid of all the albums and choose the best pictures to keep and condense the space they take up. We set abt this task but it took us ages as we reminisced over holiday and party pics, laughing at our memories and I got tearful looking at pics of our children who are adults now, didn't their childhood fly past so fast, the best years of my life.
It took us two days to go through every photograph but in the end we had condensed them down by about half and OH burnt the rest plus the albums in an old oil drum we found in a field. It was a good job done and now I feel relieved that they are all in one place and I dated a lot of them on the back. My daughter is so looking forward to coming up and having a browse through them all.
Today I decided we needed to decluttering all our CD's. This didn't take long at all once we got stuck in and we reduced their numbers so again they fit into the rack now instead of the overflow in drawers and cupboards. I have taken the box full to our nephews to have a pick of any they might like as we have quite eclectic tastes!
