I planned my morning around getting clutter out of the house and garage, and to the Sue Ryder charity shop. I booked the appointment just over two weeks ago and had committed to a further ten bags today, making the grand total of bags donated in the last few weeks to 20. I think that I’m doing okay and it’s getting easier each time.
Some bags were already full and tied up in the garage and a further two were in my car boot. Then there were the two bags of clothes in the house from my husband’s wardrobe that he made quick decisions about last week.
I had to find a further three full bags so started pulling out some boxes in the garage that I’d put to one side, and filled them with games, books, shoes etc. I even took some toys out of my ‘waiting to sell’ pile that aren’t selling and bagged them up. It was a good feeling packing up the car with the ten bags and driving to the shop.
It was raining slightly but that didn’t stop me making four trips back and forth from the car to the shop to carry them in. The lady asked if I wanted to book another appointment and asked how many bags I would have. I said ‘yes, another ten please’. I’m booked in for two weeks today. She seemed concerned that I’d have nothing left. I told her not to worry, as I have loads!
I’m pleased that I hoarded the many empty charity bags as they don’t provide them anymore. I think I’ll run out eventually.
I had a busy afternoon at work and then cooked fajhitas for dinner which everyone seemed to enjoy. I think it was because we haven’t had them for a while. My daughter and I then watched a few episodes of Friends (we’re on the last season now).
Detoxing salt bath
I read somewhere recently that bath salts are good to soak in after a decluttering session. After today’s clutter clearing success, I felt it was only right to treat myself to a detoxing Himalayan Salt bath. This is the third night running that I have used these salts and it definitely makes me feel different to the normal bubble bath.
It has a silky feel when you are in it, a divine smell (the one I bought was lotus flower), and each morning after I’ve had one of these baths, I’ve woken up without a single ache in my body. Is this a coincidence?
Removing clutter from the garage today was detoxing in action, and putting it in my car gave me great joy.
Hope you’ve all had a good day
