In 2 and a half hours we went from this, I'd been using it as a dumping ground as I sorted out other rooms.
It's looking so much better, I sorted fabric, cottons to Project Linus, fantasy and glittery ones to a local nursery. We filled a bag for the rubbish bin but most stuff was sent to people and places where it can be used. My next job is to sort the yarn.
And the narrow escape?
Claire told me there are professional declutterers who work on the Marie Kondo system of handling each item to see if it gives you joy. If we'd have done that, we'd have taken a week and not done half as much!
