Some items that have recently 'flown the nest':
At the moment I am pondering whether to put onto ebay or just bin some tickets I bought years ago that are valid in the UK. Having moved to Luxembourg methinx I won't be using them any time soon? They were expensive but I don't seem to do that well with Ebay selling and I know I've tried to sell them online before...
Various bits of paperwork, I've done some research so it's now either ready to scan or in the shredding pile... DP shredded all the bits we cleared out last weekend and took the rubbish sack's worth straight to the recycling point with IP :)
Cleaning supplies (please excuse the naff photo but if I take them all out again now I may change my mind):
Various craft supplies like paint. To a lot of people who know me, this may seem crazy. I love arts and crafts. However something I have recently realised is I don't do much with IP. Being so young I can't just leave her to it and we go to one Playgroup currently where they do 'Messy Play' every other week. And do you know what? She hates the free painting session. Well hates a strong word but I struggle to get her involved. She also hates 'mess' on her hands - she expects them to be cleaned often (certainly not her mother's daughter!) SO I came to the conclusion that if she suddenly gets interested in anything more than stickers than I'll worry about it then, but right now she has more than enough toys to play with, colouring books and crayons, plus creche 3 afternoon's a week and I frankly do not have the inclination to make a massive mess of everything trying to persuade her to get 'crafty'.
I have also now gone through my craft supplies box and been VERY ruthless. The amount of random things I was keeping in there for 'one day'...
Wrapping materials. It's crazy to think I had 4 boxes and a bag in the UK. I still have 3 boxes and a bag but they're slightly emptier. And when I thought about it, I've had some of this tissue paper or bags for years. I love wrapping presents nicely. But actually I tend to probably buy new at the time. So why do I have about 10 years worth (probably) of second hand tissue paper!? And probably 10 years worth of new tissue paper, pretty bags, etc!? Well no more! :) Don't get me wrong, I still have some, just not as much. I have a box for Christmas stuff still, a box for presents still and a box for wrapping supplies. They're just not overflowing...
I still have a massive to do list but today after a tough morning I managed to get some of it ticked off at least.
Just to clarify, I haven't got rid of any of the clothes that I'm not using for the next 3 months as part of Project 333. I have packaged them up in storage, the same goes for IP's clothing. If we're both still in the same size clothing in 3 months then I will probably just change the items for variety. I believe the idea is more to simplify your current wardrobe.
