It all started with the post Drowning In Stuff at the start of January.
Something was changing. There was a definite shift in my mindset toward the next stage of decluttering.

Life is a journey – with mine all out on display for the world to read 😉
Yesterday I, finally, did something I’ve been planning to do for the last year.
I listed the Kids’ cotbed on eBay. It hasn’t been slept in for 12 months.
An end of an era. Time to move on.
Realisation hit that it wasn’t because I hadn’t time to list the bed that I hadn’t done it. It was because I needed to accept they are growing up.
Life moves on whether we choose to move with it or not. The bed, once loved and used, is now redundant. In less than 24 hours of being listed, it’s going to a new home. In fact fate stepped in and it’ll be taking up residence in a foster-home. I couldn’t really have wished for a better place for the bed to continue its own journey.
All rather dramatic when talking about a few bits of wood screwed together. But that’s the problem. It isn’t just a few bits of wood, it’s almost 8 years of memories. To me anyway. But really, it is just a few bits of wood – isn’t it?
I think I may finally understand.

**Now would be an ideal opportunity to update where I am with my Spring Sale. Those following the blog may remember I set myself of target of generating £600 in 12 months from selling redundant items (aka clutter) – with the bed sale I now have just £115 to reach my target!**
