I feel like I have a lot of clothes, so I listed them all out and it turns out I have 39 or 47 if you include coats and scarves.
I have decided to keep a track of what I wear for the next month to see if I need all of my clothes and really to see what I actually wear. I have seen/heard a variety of versions of this but for me, keeping track using a list I’ve made seems the easiest.
why do i want to do it?

I’m starting to get really annoyed with myself recently. I have gone into a bit of a ‘decluttering kick’. This is a habit I have every so often which in there lies the problem.
I go through phases:
- I don’t need to get any more things, I have enough

So, I celebrated my birthday this weekend (not on the actual day) with my husband. We went to Takano Fruit Parlour in Shinjuku and had a wonderful fruit platter and a berry ice cream.

I used to live really close to this place but I wasn’t aware of that fact at the time. Instead, I waited until I was living on the other side of Tokyo to visit; It only took over an hour to get there. It was a really beautiful place though and I would recommend going if you’re living in the city and want some peace ...
I cleaned and sorted the kitchen cupboards and this brought to light that I have a fair bit of tea stashed away. Now, contrary to popular belief, not all British people go through gallons of tea a day. I will drink it and do like it but it’s definitely something I can live without, especially in this warmer weather but then, genius struck. I can brew the tea, leave it to cool and make ‘ice’ tea. I love drinking it this way, particularly when it’s my favourite tipple of Lady Grey or peppermint. (I don’t normally put the ...
