What do I do with all my stuff?
One of our members posted a comment on my post last month about all the opshops in Malvern; she (anonymous) wanted to know how I organised all the stuff I buy. I never thought about it really - it's like shopping anywhere, not just opshops. I've seen people come out of places like K Mart and Target, with a trolly full of stuff - where do they put all that? The clothes I buy get washed before putting them in my wardrobe with everything else. Although to have enough space, I have a system of culling my clothes as I buy more. If I buy two skirts, I take two old skirts back to the opshop. The fabrics and craft stuff go with my stash in our spare room where I do all my craft stuff, painting, drawing, sewing, etc. Cupboard is full to overflowing! Books go on the bookshelves, but again I try to get rid of older books that I don't want any more to make room for new ones. My biggest problem is finding space for the knick knacks, like the Russian doll sets that I bought today. I move things around to make space for new bits, and when it gets to the point of no room for any more, I pack them away if I can't bear to part with them! Hope this has answered your question 'Anonymous', and I'd love to hear what our other opshopping bloggers say about finding space for their stuff!
