You'd think a mega-jumble would be an option wouldn't you!
We've filled a large skip, made four trips to the charity shop and I'm shoving stuff on to ebay as fast as I can, and we _still_ have a garage-worth... and it's only a two bed house.
Minimalism and us are very distant strangers .
Although the jumble sale sounds a cunning plan, it would be shortly followed by some brutal and specific surgery by my other half - what is left is the stuff we just cannot possibly part from (apparently) - it's for when we get the *big* house (the one after the one after the next one...), and each item has a specific personal, family or just sentimental connection. And all my boxes of collectibles are of course not even up for discussion.
We watch those House Doctor and Life Laundry programmes with a mixture of envy and fear, as you can see...
Contacting Southwark Council
sounds plausible tho'
Thanks for the ideas!
