After a slow time last month, it felt good to have another clear-out. My current aim is to get rid of enough items that I can clear two drawers in a three-drawer chest and then get rid of the chest. My wardrobe is looking fairly clear but I would like to replace some of the items which are comfortable and which I wear around the house but wouldn’t want to wear in public.
