5 things you (probably) didn’t know you can recycle

Join Green and Tidy to get your FREE decluttering training.

One of the – MANY – brilliant things about decluttering…

…is how it helps you live a low impact life.

When you regularly declutter and organise…

…you know everything you’ve got…

…and exactly where it is.

So you don’t end up buying duplicates, wasting money as well as stuff.

You store stuff properly…

…so it doesn’t get damaged and have to be replaced.

And you get the stuff you no longer want, back out there…

…for someone else to use.

That’s why I called my business Green and Tidy.

But caring about waste can also lead to clutter.

When you can’t bear to send anything to landfill/incineration…

…you can end up holding onto stuff forever.

I tell you what though, it’s amazing how much stuff CAN be recycled these days.

Not just through your local authority…

…but through all sorts of organisations that are committed to reducing waste.

Watch the video below for five things you might not have known you could recycle.

Can this ONE tip stop you over-shopping

Join Green and Tidy to get your FREE decluttering training.

Ooh, shiny things!

The lure of the new.

The pleasure of sitting on the sofa, leafing through a catalogue…

…or flicking through beautiful things online.

Whether it’s clothes, baking equipment, books, CDs, DVD or whatever…

…catalogues and websites are designed to get us to buy.

We tell ourselves that we’re only “window-shopping” but…

During a recent paperwork declutter, on Facebook Live, with the lovely Clare Davey, from the UK Declutter Buster Group…

…we came across some Christmas catalogues.

Clare loves a browse through a catalogue…

…even when she doesn’t really need anything.

So how can she give herself the treat of a flick through…

…without being seduced to spend money…

…and acquire unecessary stuff?

Turns out, Clare’s got an answer to that!

And it might just help you too.

Watch the video below to learn Clare’s tip. Then comment below or on YouTube (you’ll need to be logged in to Google or YouTube) to tell us if it’ll work for you.

Should I feel guilty tossing Christmas Round Robins?

Join Green and Tidy to get your FREE decluttering training.

Christmas seems like a long time ago, doesn’t it?

Probably because it was!

But has it left a legacy around your home?

Have you still got that Christmas Round Robin newsletter from Uncle David?

You know? The one about the skiing trip they took last year…

…how well Daisy did in her GCSEs…

…and how proud they are of Maya getting into Oxford.

Maybe you read it (maybe you didn’t)…

…and put it on the side (f’now)…

…and it’s still there.

You don’t really need it.

You’ve got the family’s contact details in your phone…

…and there’s nothing in it of great family significance…

…but you feel guilty chucking it in the recycling.

During a recent Facebook Live declutter with the lovely Clare Davey, from UK Declutter Buster Facebok Group, we came across one of these.

Watch the video below to see my advice to Clare.

Did you receive any Christmas Round Robins at the end of last year? Have you kept them? If so, why? Comment below or on YouTube (you’ll need to be logged in to Google or YouTube).

Coupons and fliers – all organised

Join Green and Tidy to get your FREE decluttering training.

If there’s one type of clutter I see everywhere…

…it’s coupons and fliers.

They’re so seductive!

…a Pilates class you might take one day…

…20% off your first purchase at an attractive looking shop…

…the details of a plumber that someone recommended.

 

You pick them up…

…pop them in your purse or handbag…

…maybe transfer them to your drop zone…

…stick them on your noticeboard…

…or just stuff them in your hell drawer.

And you never look at them again!

You end up with bits of paper all over the house…

…with no way to use the information.

Even if you WERE motivated to go to Pilates…

…you wanted to buy something that shop sells…

…or you DID need a plumber…

…you wouldn’t even THINK of that bit of paper…

…let alone be able to find it.

But it doesn’t have to be this way.

I recently helped Clare Davey (from the UK Declutter Buster Facebook Group) declutter her paperwork, live on Facebook…

…and, during our session…

…I showed her how to solve this problem – forever.

Have you got coupons and fliers everywhere? Watch the video below for the solution.

Comment below or on YouTube (you’ll need to be logged in to Google or YouTube) to tell me how you manage coupons and fliers.

How can I make money from my clutter?

Join Green and Tidy to get your FREE decluttering training.

Is there cash in your attic?

One way to make sure your unwanted stuff goes to a good new home…

…and make money at the same time…

…is to sell your unwanted stuff.

EBay. A yard/car boot/garage sale. Gumtree. Facebook.

There are loads of ways to convert your junk into cash.

And making money can be a great way to motivate yourself to declutter.

So why don’t I always recommend it?

My friend, Clare Davey (from the UK Declutter Buster Facebook Group), and I talked about this during a recent Facebook Live.

Are you hanging onto stuff until you get round to selling it? Watch the video below and then comment below or on YouTube (you’ll need to be logged in to Google or YouTube) to tell me what you plan to do.
