ONE WAY TO MAKE AN IMPACT ON YOUR CLUTTER IN LESS THAN AN HOUR

Pride of place in lots and lots of lounges up and down the country are shelf upon shelf of videos. Barney,  Bagpuss, Loveboat, Jane Fonda, Ivor the Engine – there they are in all their glory reminding us of a bygone era. The one thing that isn’t there is something to play them on.  And how many can you get on a shelf ? Ten maybe or fifteen if you’re lucky because they are huge, cumbersome things. They were a brilliant thing to have (in the eighties and nineties) but now they are three or four generations old cast aside by DVDs, BluRays and then downloads and streaming.

But it's hard to get rid of things because 

  • You spent a lot of money on them
  • They brought so much pleasure to your family
  • They have so much sentiment attached to them

Nevertheless they should go, they really should – you need to try and overcome the obstacles of cost, usefulness and sentiment. So look at and focus on the positives.  Yes, they did give your family pleasure and you do look at some of them and go “aah” so you can safely say that in most cases you have had your ten pounds’ worth out of them. If you’re still struggling to get out the black bin liner just think about the space. You will free up lots and lots of space.

A word of warning, charity shops will be unlikely to want your videos. Foreign charities might so go down that avenue.

And beware of the blank video cassette. It may just have a wedding, birth or graduation on it so check carefully!

So, if you have a free hour in the next couple of days, do yourself and your home a favour and get rid of some videos. You know you want to!

  1. In relation to potatoes!! Yes you are right Lesley. My dad had an allotment and we kept potatoes with dirt on for nearly a year in our back outhouse! I think my local greengrocers you can buy a big bag of potatoes but never bought one to see …. Would be interesting to know. Now potatoes last literally a week .. so yes I’ve thought the same too 😊 I think it’s lack of dirt, they are all the same size and I think treated as well probably! It’s a puzzle!
