How to get started with Decluttering

Video with Decluttering Tips for #vlogchallenge

Last week I was invited to join in with a new Vlog Challenge, which has been set up by two top notch bloggers: Nickie from Typecast and Kate at WitWitWoo. The objective of #vlogchallenge is to encourage bloggers to increase our video presence and confidence in front of the camera with the help of a weekly prompt.

This week’s prompt was Top Tips.

In all my years of working as a video producer and editor, I really only strayed around to the front of the camera to put a microphone onto somebody else, so this is pretty new to me. I knew that if I thought about it too much, I probably wouldn’t have the nerve to do it at all, so I kept it really simple.  I came straight back from my spin class, propped my iPhone on the piano and pressed record. 



These simple decluttering tips go with a post I featured a few weeks ago about my ongoing battle with my house – Taming My Clutter plus 5 Decluttering Tips!

I also have a collaborative Pinterest board called Me Versus the House which features organisational tips from various contributors.

So there we have it. I have vlogged – a sentence which is new to my vocabulary! And if I like the prompt, I may come back for week two – and perhaps even comb my hair first!

Please fell free to add your own decluttering tips or comment on the video in the comments below.

    Well done on your first vlog! Thank you for your tips, I am doing up our house and love looking back at before and after photos but never thought about doing it for things like decluttering. Good idea!

      Thank you Stephanie – although I wouldn’t like to shock you with a photo of my desk at the moment. *needswork* Hmmmm!

    you are so natural on camera! Love it! (I always forgot to do before and after shots) x

      You are very kind Fritha. I’ve just found out next weeks prompt so it could all go horribly wrong on the next one 😉
