Ok - so it's only the first day of the Challenge but over the month my blog posts are going to record my journey through the Challenge. And since my blog goes live on a Tuesday there isn't a great deal to report this week!
Firstly, as it's my first time hosting a Challenge I decided to put my face on !!!
I started by doing the Bonus Declutter Challenge. I am doing the daily countdown so today I found 28 things to declutter.
Everything here was in my bedroom - I admit I was worried that I might struggle with this Challenge - not so worried now I've started! Three old throat sweets, unused and destined not to be used hand creams, old perfume and glasses are just a few of my finds. I won't throw away anything that could be donated, as you will see when we get to the first Challenge proper - we have a sizeable donation pile already!
Challenge No.1 - Tidy your car boot / trunk.
Our car is used by three different drivers and I don't drive very much at all at the moment so I was a bit worried when I opened the boot wondering what I would find!
So, armed with my timer set to 10 minutes, I held my breath and opened the boot.
The big silver cover keeps the frost and snow off the windscreen and at the moment covers all the charity donations!!
First job was to empty the boot.
The charity donations stored in here are mainly books, bedding and tablecloths from a previous clearout. There is also a bag of rubbish, two types of foam (?), deckchairs, a scarf and a rag quilt made by my own fair hand amongst other things.
To be fair most of this was destined to stay in the boot for now - so once I took the mat out and shook it, it was a case of putting back what was staying in some sort of order.
I put all the charity donations on the right hand side, the foam went back as I'm not too sure why we have it! Is it on the way to the tip or the garage?! The chairs and mat are for when we can go on picnics again. ;(
Of course there are the obligatory shopping bags, too.
I don't know if you can see but I stopped the timer with 56 seconds left on it!!
I'd love to know how you are doing with the Challenges!
