It is strange. I am great at decluttering other people's sheds/lofts/cupboards, but I can't seem to do my own.
I find that doubly odd, because I know out of mine what is crap and can be binned, but with somebody else's crap, there is no way of knowing if it is of some deep sentimental value, so an appropriate home for it needs to be found.
The basic trick is de-randomising the junk.

Is it some kind of sewing machine?


HL - I think that that's what is great about having a de-junking partner. They force you to examine if you are genuinely emotionally attached to things or just think you are.

Arvo freecycled my grandmother's clock instead of his grandmother's. I was emotionally attached to it, but it's been good to let it go.

Do you stuff stuff in the top and it comes out of the bottom flat?

Prize of self satisfaction to the person who can tell me what it is !


It is a beard-rolling machine. Men with long beards stumbled when they walked and needed this machine to make the beard more compact.

Now if there are any German speakers around you would know what I mean

A good way of doing that is to take it all to a car boot sale.
When you see it on the stall and decide you must keep it, you can just take it off.

This decluttering thread is becoming quite a challenge.

I am considering taking the pickup with me to the gathering on Saturday. However I will be bringing it back (nearly) empty.
