    Well step 1 of getting the spare room reorganised has unexpectedly got underway tonight. The double bed is going to someone we know setting up a new home from scratch so once that's out the way I need to jump up to Ikea and buy a new single bed before our next guest comes on Wednesday! Frustratingly we would have our foldaway bed if OH had let me buy it in the sale just a week or two ago but he insisted on waiting til we definitely need it :rolleyes:

    I LOVE your pantry! Well done on getting it organised, my kitchen is on the list to do but it's a huge job so will probably be ages before I get round to it.

    Same here PTB so decided to tackle a cupboard at a time - 10 mins a night in just one part of it. Feels less of a big deal that way.

    Yes, it's definitely going to have to be a cupboard at a time job. I don't think there's any other way you could do a kitchen, unless I guess if it's very very small.

    Thankfully we only have one food cupboard and all the others are fairly well organised so will mostly be a case of pulling out and cleaning, double checking if there's anything we don't need any more. The Tupperware cupboard has got a bit of a mess as well because I keep buying more and more of the stuff!

    Ok, I've decided that I need to not come on this thread anymore, not because I don't want to be organised, I really do, but that I'm beginning to think I need a new kitchen.

    Now THAT could get expensive....

    Guess what! When I go to Canada this summer I am going to visit Green Gables and Prince Edward Island!!!! I am so, so, so excited :) By the way, I also love Malory Towers, St Clares, The Chalet School and the Trebizon books. An ex of mine whom I was in a toxic relationship with convinced me to get rid of all of my books, it is the single biggest regret of my life.

    How on earth can plasters be out of date?!? :eek:

    You might want to do a bit of research, some of them (if not much out of date) might still be fine. Before 'use by' dates on medicine became enforced, we regularly used to ship many kinds of 'out of date' medicines off to Africa and such - paracetamol tablets, for example, don't exactly go from 'effective' in 'ineffective' overnight ;) 'Discard dates' are different, though - no medicine which has one should be used after the discard date.

    :D No plasters were out of date, they were just empty packets.

    I have kept 2018 painkillers but 2013 is going a tad too far.:D

    I found this in offer today, I’m tempted to buy , justifying to myself that it will help me be more tidy / organised, but I think I might be kidding myself and actually I’d be buying a new toy that I don’t need and would have to find drawer/cupboard space for which is already at a premium

    https://m.createandcraft.com/gb/pp/brother-pt-craft-labeller-401185?query=fh_view_size=24&fh_maxdisplaynrvalues_brand_cc=-1&fh_location=%2f%2fcreateandcraft%2fen_GB%[email protected];%7bcreateandcraft_8277%7d%[email protected];%7bcreateandcraft_8277_12689%7d&fh_sort=-hasimage_cc

    Also it only comes with 4m if gold on white ribbon so I’d need to buy a more practical tape thus more £££

    Step 2 of reorganising the spare room is underway today. OH's stepson has been round to collect the old bed (plus some other bits and pieces which has cleared space :D); the foldaway bed I ordered for delivery next week is supposedly arriving today; and the new single I bought yesterday is all ready for construction when OH is back to help lift the box upstairs (I could do it myself but I can't be bothered :p)

    It might actually be all ready in time for my mum staying on Wednesday.

    Sadly it all happened so quickly I've not got any before photos but will definitely post after photos when it's all done.

    Quite a productive day whilst Mr HB golfing!!!

    Done half of the kitchen, half of my wardrobe lol!! Some things might need revisiting and new boxes for the wardrobe definitely - just can’t find nice ones atm.

    I need a new shoe rack and have ordered mini shelves for the kitchen. But happy with progress.

    Not sure whether I should have folded my golf tops (polo shirts) or not - or how best to fold PJs - I have rather a lot of these eek!! Still summer ones to sort out.

    No pics as room not quite finished but a Swedish friend came round last night. We mentioned how we wanted to switch the living room and dining rooms about. He organized the taking apart of the couch to fit it through the door and helped arrange furniture.
    I told him, he should have his own home improvement show. Granted it would be like the Gordon Ramsay of home improvement ;)

    My fabric organisation got a little out of hand... this is not an in situ photo, but I’ve moved everything to the living room from my study / dining table for a good sort, including WIP projects and print test pieces.
