Episode 36 – Decluttering and organising stationery


In this podcast, Lesley and Ingrid talk about how satisfying decluttering and organising stationary can be. We explore the stationary items in your drawer that have been around for years and why it's time to let go. 

Organising your stationery drawer is something that often gets neglected for years and we have a tendency to hang onto things thinking they will come in one day but the amount of stationery we use now in comparison to years gone by is so little so we should think about letting some go.
