De-cluttering

    You must be joking. Strictly for the collectors I'd think. For the knives I have bought the utility decreases as the number of blades increases. Once you get past the bottle opener/screwdriver it is all downhill (or down-leg once the hole in the pocket gets big enough).

    When I made my first move it was from a 5 bed 1800 sq ft Edwardian terrace where I'd lived 58 years to a 2 bed 700 sq ft bungalow. The decluttering was horrendous, more trips to the charity shops and to the tip than I care to think about.
    This move was an upsizing, to a 3 bed 1400 sq ft house, so very little dumping needed.
    I did have some things that didn't get used for about a year, but since they were £14k worth of astro imaging kit it was just a matter of getting other things ready for them. No way was I going to get rid of them.

    The camera kit will go before the SAK MT collection. I agree it’s easy to hoard stuff, hence this thread. I’m off work for a fortnight this Friday -skips already booked !!

    Talking of Swiss Army Knives, has anyone ever needed to pick a boy scout out of a horses hoof?
