When we first arrived here on the farm, we weren’t sure if we would be staying, so we did only the bare minimum to make the house liveable. Fresh curtains (bought from an Op shop), and a new fire to make sure that we were warm in the cold months. We made do with our furniture from our previous home, even though it didn’t fit too well, and was made for a different kind of life.
Two years on, and we have worked out what is useful for our new life, what we need, and of course, what we don’t need. It turns out that despite my constant urge to purge, we still had a heap of strange things that we had shoved into cupboards when we moved here, and had not seen the light of day since.
One thing I was determined to do these holidays was to tackle the cupboard in the guest room. It was a hideous mess. Jam packed with memorabilia, teaching resources, and all those things which we had no idea what to do with when we moved in.
Prepare to be shocked….
The best part? Getting rid of all that unwanted stuff. It was sooo freeing. I’m a big fan of getting rid of anything that we don’t love, use, or need. Every time I go to the cupboard now, I don’t dread things falling out, and I know that I can find what I want quickly. I’m loving myself sick!
Do you have embarrassing cupboards? Do you love chucking out unwanted stuff too???
