Hi Kat,
I’m about to take on decluttering and organising our home properly for the first time.
We have four kids and I’m a daughter of hoarders, we live in a three bedroom rented house (it comes with my husbands work), and lots of friends who live this mining town have given us their belongings, so to say that this job is hard is a major under statement!!!
and breathe!

I want to know what you recommend to do with last years school books? The used, written in exercise books.
Should I just throw them as my children will probably never look at them again?
Or keep one or two for sentimental reasons to give to them when they are older??
Any advice would be great!

thank you for sharing all your ideas and tips, they are an immense help!
