Day 295: Shopping for Tiles, Decision Made on Bathroom Suite, and I Sold Some More Clutter

I’m selling about one item a week on average at the moment through Facebook Marketplace. Books and games tend to go quite quickly particularly if they are new. A lady messaged me about the brand new little pack of Charlie and Lola books in a plastic rucksack and she needed them for her son’s birthday. She was over the moon when I said that they were still available and let her have them for a reduced price of £6

This type of clutter clearing works for me, Even though it’s quite a slow process, waiting for someone to want it, at least I know that they are going to a good home. This obviously doesn’t work for everything I want to get rid of, most of the clutter goes into the charity bags. That’s going well too.

Ensuite renovation

We had a discussion with the plumber this morning about the final design of the bathroom and I’ve agreed to pay him the extra for the shelves in the en-suite and the bespoke cupboard in the main part of the room. We’ve also made a decision on the bathroom suite which will be fitted next week.

Today they made good some of the walls, strengthened the structure surrounding the shower walls and plastered the ceiling.

It doesn’t look like much has been done, but I know that they’ve been working hard all day with behind the scenes type stuff.

Shopping for tiles

My daughter and I went out to Topps Tiles store this morning. We bought 5 different floor and wall tiles and brought them home to get the rest of the family to help with the decision. What I didn’t realise until I’d paid for them was that I can take them back for a refund when we’ve finished with them. That’s a result!

Another busy but productive day. Hope you’ve all had a good Wednesday.

Until tomorrow…

  1. Good luck with the decision process. Glad to hear you can bring them back. I was able to do that with any tiles I had not used as well as laminate flooring that had not come out of the package. Estimating can be a guessing game and knowing you can return the unused pieces is a godsend.
