31 Things In 31 Days Decluttering Challenge - Day 1 - Duplicates
It's October and that signals the start of the 31 days challenge.
And as much as I would like to participate I need to be realistic, I don't think I'd actually manage the full 31 days.
Emily of My Love for Words is going to do a 31 days of decluttering challenge this month. I don't think I'll keep up with that either, although I should at least make the attempt.
What I AM going to do is 31 things, 31 sewing room things and I will share them with you throughout October, just not everyday.
I'm kicking off with something easy.
I've got one.
Or maybe two.
Okay! I've got three!
Lint rollers are really useful right? Especially when you've got pets. They're also great for picking up lots of little bits of thread off your project when sewing.
I can easily justify owning more then one, one for using at the ironing board and one for the cutting table or the laundry or my wardrobe, depending on where it is most needed at any given time.
But just how many is too many? I think I used to have four or five and one even lived in my handbag.
Really, I can do quite well with just the two, after all this empty one has been empty for a long, looong time now.
I almost put that extra one in the donation box, and then at the last minute I realised it should just go in the recycling. That was easy. And if I ever need another its not like lint rollers are a difficult item to procure.
Yay for one less thing in the sewing room!
