A before and after story:
One of my best friends from uni is coming to stay next week, so I thought I should tidy up the spare room. Especially because she would have trouble finding the bed if I didn’t!
So I decided I would put Mimi Tanner’s ‘Doll House Method’ into practice. It is just one room, so according to Mimi’s method all you have to do is take everything out of the room that shouldn’t be there, or doesn’t belong there and Voila! The room is instantly less cluttered. Now all I have in the room is a bed and a low chest of drawers which I hope my friend can use for her stuff while she is here.
Here are the before and after shots:
So now all I have to do is deal with the other spare room, which is now FULL of homeless stuff which I transferred from this room – scary photo to follow soon!
But, it is true to say that the room for my friend now looks calm and collected, and no longer makes me feel upset! So a pretty positive result overall!
