I came across a website last week with a plan to get organised in 31 days (link at bottom of post). I’ve decided to give it a go and see how I go with it. Day one had no specific instructions as it was just an introduction to the plan, so I decided I would start my day 1 by bringing out the black garbage bags (as suggested on this website) and starting the cull. This is always hard for me. I find it hard to get rid of things. I um and ah over getting rid of anything, just in case it comes in handy one day. My goal is to become more ruthless in this area.
