Seven Things Week 4

As expected there was a slow down this week.

I had less time and as I've been decluttering on and off all year, the easy bulk disposals have already been made. 

Until now I've been mostly giving things away, either straight to the charity based opshops or increasingly through our local Buy Nothing Community.  Now I'm getting to possessions that I may be able to sell.  Selling takes a lot more time and effort than giving things away.

Seven Things Week 3

I'm pretty pleased with how it went this week, particularly as I was working out of town for 3 of the days.

I'm away for half of this week, too, so this may be the week that suffers.
