May Declutter: Final day: 17 items, 292 total.

Well, I looked around for more stuff to declutter, but didn't really find anything else - short of clearing out the shed, which isn't that bad anyway, but which I can't really face until the weather gets better and I have more time or clearing out the loft (which again, we did a couple of years ago, so it's not actually that bad), there's not a lot more to be done. I did help Alex cull through his bookshelves and get rid of some books he won't read again for whatever reason. A few are going to school, a few to a friend with a younger son, a few to the charity shop. 

Still, it's been a good clear out - nearly 300 items got rid of, and actually, it's really more than that because I counted things like a set of pens as one, not 12.. I'm sure I'll have a go at this again next year, though who knows if I'll make it through the whole month - maybe I'll take a different approach like a drawer or cupboard a day or something!

I am lugging behind with my efforts. But the decluttering is a success so far. Had to take a look how you do the postings. I can see that it might become more difficult if you do it every year. Well done, Kate! And thanks for the inspiration!
