The Ultimate Spring Clean!

Well thru a combination of reading minimalist blogs and the fact my spare room was overflowing with...well, junk, to put it bluntly, I decided it was time to give the whole flat a thorough once over and get rid of anything I don't need. Funnily enough, the spare room took up most of my time yesterday...

Couple of before shots - damn my spacious flat and ability to hoard stuff!
Like for example, why the heck do I have 3 school ties?! The green ones are from primary school for gosh sakes! Well they're gone now, altho I did keep the Prefect badge hehe
In case its not been mentioned before, I'm a huge Hanson fan, and as a kid I collected pretty much everything with their image on it, hence the folder full of...paper...
Can you tell how dedicated I was!
Remember the days when you used to get big sheets of stickers with magazines? Highlight of my week! Anyway all the Hanson stuff is now gone, altho I did keep a little Taylor notepad, which I'll totally use - can't go wrong with keyring sized paper...yeah...
I even filled in one of the books, gawd I was obsessed!
Here's a sneak peek at the tidy bookcase/now shoe rack. Even got rid of some shoes, go Elise!

Tackled half my bedroom today, but heading to Glasgow soon to have dinner with Sean's family, so better begin the tedious job of finding an outfit....

  2. You could have sent the ties to this lady - or just collected a few more and made your own!

    Hanson eh? Mmmm (bop). I had a scrap book of Corey Haim and Tom Cruise. But then I am ancient. And got started with the boys young ;-)
