Ever since we moved house last July we've been trying to do a little bit of DIY when we get chance. Unfortunately our loft/office room has become somewhat of a dumping zone. As I don't spend much time up there, I think it has become an 'out of sight out of mind' situation for me and I like to pretend it isn't there. The room is pretty big, which means it's going to take quite a bit of time, money and effort to completely sort but Mobile Mini have certainly given us a helping hand.
One of my main bug bears is the chest of drawers. We've had these drawers a while and did them up ourselves, but since moving they have just become a place to pop work and files as there isn't much storage up there. The 'dumping corner' just looks awful and really needed some doing up.
Mobile Mini kindly gifted me a £50 voucher for Not On The Highstreet to pick some items and help me get on my way with updating the loft. I'm a huge fan of rose gold (in case you didn't already know) so I think all my purchases reflected this! I really wanted the corner to come to life and actually look like it's meant to be there and I think my new bits and bobs certainly did that.
I've learnt a few de-cluttering tips along the way:
1. You do not need to keep everything you have ever owned
2. That jumper you've had for three years and never worn...donate it to charity
3. Not everything you love needs to be on display, rotate your items every now and again if you can't bear to get rid.
I hope you enjoyed my Mobile Mini Spring Cleaning Challenge and it's inspired you to de-clutter too.
