    Don't worry I've doing nothing the past few days. I've just been so busy and exhausted. I have upcoming exams I need to study for too. Will have to do a general clean up tomorrow and get back into the decluttering soon.

    I think I have fairies in my cutlery drawer that bring forks and steal teaspoons... I did a big cull of cutlery and utensils a few months ago and left 8 each of knives, forks, spoons and teaspoons. So today I thought I'd just have a quick look to make sure all was still in order and there were 15 forks and 4 teaspoons! Where did the forks come from and where did the spoons go!!!

    10th June – Other Cupboards

    We have done food, plastics and cutlery already … now its time for all the other cupboards or drawers. Glasses and cups, pots, plates, dishes and other stuff … take them all out, wipe down the cupboard, toss anything that isn’t needed any more and re-organise.

    Did the cutlery and utensil draws today. Cutlery draw needed a wipe out but that was it, no photo as there wasn't much change. Cutlery draw needed rearranging though

    My drawers were done, but I didn't get pics 😕

    I also decluttered my study. Doesn't sound like a big deal but recently it had become more of a dumping ground than anything. I actually had to make a path at one stage!

    No before pics but finished product. -

    I want to get a smaller desk and then I'll be all ready for semester 2!

    Thanks for the motivation guys!!!

    Tips for cleaning out your whitegoods cemetery

    How do we end up with a whitegoods cemetery in the first place? So much has to do with advertising. We are seduced into believing life will be so much easier, faster, cheaper and healthier if we bake our own bread and make fresh juice every morning.

    In the perfect world this would be great. But we don’t live in a perfect world.

    The reality is that once you get the juicer and breadmaker home, you don’t have someone to make the juice or bake the bread, you’re doing all the work and cleaning up afterwards. Fiddly, time-consuming gadgets lose their shine very quickly.

    Cleaning pulp out of the mesh of the juicer can take ages and bread is eaten in most households daily, so that’s a lot of baking to be done. For most families, the one thing they don’t have a lot of is time, so anything that creates more work, gets relegated to the back of the cupboard.
    Hence, the beginning of the whitegoods cemetery!

    Of course this isn’t the only way to collect an array of miscellaneous gadgets. Presents like hot dog makers and chocolate fondue sets add to the problem. These sorts of items make cheap, fun, novelty gifts, which is great if you are the giver. However if you are the receiver I’m guessing the novelty value has worn off after the first month and they gather dust at the back of the cupboard.

    A good way to prevent this happening is to let people know you are short of space so a voucher may be a better option.

    If it’s too late and you already have an oversupply of gadgets, here are a few ways to lighten the load.
    1. Write the date on the item and write a date in your diary for six months on. If you haven’t used the item in that time, donate it to a charity that could use it.
    2. Give the items to your day care centre. Milkshake makers or pie makers may be very useful if lunch is provided.
    3. Consider sharing white goods with your playgroup. Each person in the group may want to use the item for a while and when they don’t want it anymore, they could pass it on to the next person.
    4. Only keep gadgets that are multi-purpose. Consider a blender as a better option than a milkshake maker. A large pie tin is better than a pie maker as you use less pastry, and eat more filling. And you can always boil a hot dog in a saucepan, and melt chocolate the same way.
    Novelty items are fun occasionally, but is it worth storing something in your cupboard that only comes out once a year? The reality is there are many ways to enjoy the same thing without owning the fancy gadget.

    As a rule only keep what you use on a regular basis and that way your cupboards won’t be stuffed to the brim with items that belong in the cemetery

    11th June – Wipe down cupboards, skirtings and kickboards – and finish any cupboards from yesterday

    We have done the inside of the cupboards – now its time for the outside. Wipe down all the cupboards, skirtings and kickboards in the kitchen.

    Now your kitchen should hopefully be all sparkly and clean
