I am the same. I keep far too much and it annoys me. So i have days when i just chuck chuck chuck. So far i have cleared 2 cupboards and 2 drawers full of crap! My sister is gutting her kitchen and is giving me loads of kitchen stuff she no longer uses. We are skint and they have expensive taste so i know the stuff will be good quality even if used. I will then do a kitchen cleanse again and get rid of everything we wont/dont use. I can't handle clutter and my house is already far too clutterd for my liking.

Oh Catty btw my mum is the same. Chopping boards/cups/pots and pants from when i was a kid!

Still, although I do know how to sew up a hole, I don't t think I'll be doing so even with good intentions!
I NEVER even thought to sew socks. We go through a ridiculous amount as my OH is on his feet 12 hours a day and can wear a hole in a pair in one day!

I hate mis matching socks and it takes me all my strength not to throw it out as soon as i find an odd one. Chances are ill find it i the next load of washing but hate it. I always check for pairs when i am loading the machine but my OH doesnt so it happens quite alot.
