The Teddies and Toys are Literally Holding On To The Rocking Horse

The Rocking Horse is Hiding

I found our rocking horse in the spare room yesterday evening when I got the message on Facebook Marketplace that someone wanted to come round and have a look at it. It appeared like the horse was either hiding and didn’t want to leave, or the teddies didn’t want it to leave 😂.

I messaged back the potential buyer to say that it was still available and then literally dragged the rocking horse from the spare room out into the (nice clear) upstairs hallway this morning, leaving a trail of clutter in its wake!

I haven’t heard back from the buyer since (mind you, it’s only been a day); therefore, the horse remains near the entrance to the spare room where my husband is working from home.

Here is the rocking horse advert… quite cute isn’t it? This picture was taken last year when that side of the room was obviously tidy.

Today’s decluttering task

This evening I spent some time shoving and the piling the clutter back on the left hand side of the spare room – its permanent place for now. With one less item in there, it obviously looks a little less cluttered; however, everything is still topsy turvy.

Let’s just hope that I sell the rocking horse, as I don’t fancy putting it back in the spare room.

Until tomorrow…

  1. Ah yes spare rooms, not a good term because it really becomes a large closet. I had this problem and the whole thing overwhelmed me for months until I decided to take care of one item a day. I would randomly pick one item and made myself figure out if it was staying(in another more suitable space), donate(or sell) or trash. I had to think outside the box if I wanted to keep something it had to have a use. I had baskets so I used them in closets to corral loose items, hat boxes were used for storing out of season scarves etc. It took some time but I started seeing progress and then I was more excited about finishing the room.
