Operation Declutter

Project 1: Bathroom

Before - BAD

Interim - better but not good enough

Solution - Courtesy of Officeworks


Project 2: Shoes

Before - DISASTER!

Solution - these beauties from Bunnings


Next task will be to take a photo of every pair of shoes and stick them on each box.

Also tidied up our casual shoes rack

Two large bags of old shoes for charity

Bye bye shoe boxes!

It feels so good to be organised and know where my things belong :-D

P.S. I did a bit of decluttering of the blog too - do you like the new look?

Added 1 August: For those interested in the clear shoe boxes, here's a photo of the packaging. From my recollection they were $15 per pack.


  1. I really need to do something like this with my bathroom! I have no space left foe anything! Since I don't study anymore, I figure I can transform my desk into a little "beauty station" and move the majority off my stuff over there.

    I also want to say I love the fact that you have a shopping trolley in your house.

  2. ahaahhahaaaaa you took a woolies trolley home for this very purpose? ;p I've transferred all my shoes into clear shoeboxes but haven't gotten around to taking pics yet...this was 3 years ago, mind you. Still no pics, I hope you'll fare better! =D

  3. LOVE the clear bunnings shoes boxes, do you mind letting me know how much they were and if they came in packs or otherwise? It's just a medium sort of plastic right?
    Good work, loving the cleansing process - did something similar 2 weeks ago for my room, although planning to move out within next few months so it was just for a short-term sigh of relief ;)

  4. His post is so inspiring! I really need to declutter :((

  5. hi ms curious

    the reject shop also sell shoe organisers..........Bunnings also sells shoe organisers. THe other good place is Big W.
    Ur cupboars look much better and decluttering is a good way of attracting more
    love anurag

  6. Love the trolley!! hahaha....

    I need me some clear boxes.

  7. I did something similar last year and it is so much less stressul when you have less clutter! I am so determined to maintain it that when I buy something new, I make myself throw out an old piece so I don't get all cluttered up again :)

  8. Love the Bunnings boxes, I had no idea you could get them from there! I might have to have a look x

  9. Thanks everyone, I'm pleasantly surprised to get so many responses.

    @Helen and @aelie I updated the blog with a photo of the shoe boxes packaging.

    And that is not my trolley! We live in an apartment block and the trolleys were at the garage when we moved in! Handy for bringing the groceries upstairs, and apparently for moving shoeboxes!
