Two Things

First thing. We've just returned from listening to Rue Royale make some music for a polite, quiet crowd at the Yardbird again.  I know, I know, I always go on about them... but they deserve it.  They're good!

Second thing. I've hinted at the possibility of drastic stuff-reduction measures looming on the horizon, but so far we've done nothing more radical than a few small clear-outs of clothes and toys.  To be honest, we don't have a huge amount of possessions; we're just feeling the need to reduce the amount of things we do have to the minimum. So... we're on Day 2 of our massive de-cluttering binge, with the help of a book entitled 30 Day Clutter Bootcamp.  Take it from this speed-reader; I've given the entire book a quick once over and it's amazing! I am the type of person who loves to read instructions for everything.  30 Day Clutter Bootcamp gives me exactly what I want with minimal fuss and no complications.  Each day has it's own specific set of items to focus on: music, books, photographs, etc. All clearing-out sessions are timed to avoid burnout, and there are many useful tips to employ along the way. 

There was probably a third thing.  But it's really late, and I've forgotten it.  Tomorrow promises to be a very long day, as usual, and I need to stop all this thinking.

I'll leave you with some Rue Royale.  Can't resist!

  1. Oooh! I've never heard of these guys before. Very nice.

    Good luck with decluttering. I did that when I moved a few months ago. Quite freeing!

  2. Thanks, Melissa! RR should be in the States soon; check their website for updates on their whereabouts! :)

  3. Clearing stuff always makes me feel better. I've been on my journey to simplify and declutter for two years now and I get that urge once in a while. Good luck!
