Sorting out the clutter

The mission for today is to sort out the clutter we have in our house! It’s a massive job but first step is to get some boxes to pack things away in. So we took a trip to Staples! I love going to the shop because I love stationery! We were standing in the middle of the shop and my hubby turned to me and said “is it weird but I love stationery”! Hehe this is why I love him! We’re so alike!

There were so many boxes to choose from though! We ended up going with the Really Useful Boxes ones. They’re a bit more expensive but they’re more sturdy and will take some weight. I’ve bought some smaller cheaper ones and you can tell the difference.



We then got a bit distracted by the pens and USB sticks!



Oh and then the hubby spotted some Hello Kitty stuff but I pointed out its a bit too early to be buying school stuff for the kiddiwink!


We’re back home now and I’ve started to put away some items. I’ve packed away the remaining cuddly toys (Carebears!) and started on the clothes. I’ve decided to pack away the clothes that currently don’t fit me (due to the bump). I’ve bought some vacuum pack bags for this purpose. I’m going to pack my wedding dress away as well. I can’t bring myself to get rid of it but it’s taking up way too much room in the wardrobe. I’m also going to pack away our summer/holiday clothes. I’ll leave them on the shelf in the wardrobe rather than on hangers. They’ll take up less room on the shelf.



Oh and this is just the beginning! May need to buy some more boxes.

    Ahh, sorting out clutter is one of my favorite things to do (I’m not joking, I love organizing, lol). You and I have something totally in common here, we love going to Staples and we love stationary! I love collecting it and giving it away to friends if I write them a letter (I love pen-pal type of things :3) Also, Care Bears!! Holy crap, I love Care Bears!! 😀

      Oh I used to love pen palling but got out of the habit which is a shame. I used to put my name in all those little friendship books and had over 30 pen pals at one stage.

      I <3 CareBears!! Share Bear was my favourite!
