I don't class myself as a hoarder (ha!), to me a hoarder is someone who keeps everything regardless, with no use for things or even an intention of finding a use, just piled up randomly all over the place in heaps. Probably deluding myself, but there you go.
I am a chucker outerer (technical term!). I regularly get rid of anything that I no longer want or need, and try not to bring anything into the house that I don't want or need. Clothes that don't fit, old bills all go. I recycle magazines that have been read etc etc. I have a big pile of books to read, but once they are read, I pass them on to someone else or the charity shop.
See, not sooooo bad. This is what I took to the charity shop today after a weekend clear out.
And the empty car boot afterwards to show how much there was.
I only left the charity shop with one thing.
It was published in 1983. Bet that Martha wouldn't wear a dress like that now!
There are a few areas where I have a weakness though.

What do you mean, you see multiples of the same thing - surely not...
But I am selective, only the one shape and I would trade them all in for a complete set of Butterprint!
Well, apart from these two of course...
Actually, I don't collect plastic boxes at all, they just seem to grow and multiply on their own.
So don't judge me for being a gatherer, I am a chucker too!
Hubby asked if I had many readers. When I looked I was surprised to realise just how many of you have been reading along. I notice also that since I added the links to follow on google and bloglovin, more of you are following me too.
So, I wanted to say hello and welcome to all of my new and existing readers, and a huge thank you to all of you. Thank you also for all of your lovely comments, it is the best part of blogging for me! I love to read what you think and to be able to have a little conversation with you.
Thank you for your friendship and support, I really appreciate it, and hope that I am in a little way able to reciprocate.
