What I Decluttered in January 2021

Disclaimer: I have yet to actually remove these items from the house due to trying to sell/can't donate to charity shops/can't get them to family! But they are away in a box and that's close enough for me to warrant this post!

January was a great month for decluttering. I did intend to do a minimalism challenge but I couldn't decide which one to do, so in the end I just decided to declutter as and when I felt like it. I ended up doing a little decluttering every other day!

Why I No Longer Use Instagram

I have officially been off Instagram for over a month now. Give or take. Unfortunately I can't remember when exactly and I no longer have the last image I posted, but we'll say about a month. I feel so much better for it.

My Spending Ban Rules

Full credit goes to Linda Roche for the inspiration behind this blog post!

As you may know, I am working on my minimalism journey again in 2021, and part of that journey is to curb my unnecessary spending. Admittedly it's been harder than I imagined so far, as I have already spent just under £50 - not including what I have spent on necessary items. Oops.

My Best Purchases of 2020

I did a lot of spending in 2020. I ended up buying myself a Kindle and a new laptop. But what purchases have made me a happiest? It's certainly given me a lot to think about...

Diary Entry #13 | Primary School Worries

I have officially applied for primary school places for Charlie this year. I can't believe it's come around so quickly. How the hell am I going to have a four year old in school this September?! It's genuinely terrifying.
