I've made a huge dent in the clutter around my home. I still have a long way to go but I'm getting there slowly. It's hard for me to get rid of things even if I have never used them. I am a bit of a hoarder at heart. My partner however is not. I can see the difference in him as I've gotten rid of things and kept the house alot tidier. He is definately a happier man. I have also started baking for him again which he loves. When he is happy our whole house is happier I feel. There are alot of renovations that we would like to do to our house and I think that sometimes this brings me down as I feel like I'm not living in the house that I really want to be living in. There are so many things I want to change but we just don't have the money at the moment. My partner is starting a new job next week with a big pay increase but I am not going back to work full time after having my son. I will be going back 2 days a week so that is a big drop in income for me. So we will probably end up where we were before we had our son which was comfortable and alot better off than many other people. I have to keep reminding myself that we can't have everything we want now. We need to save for things :) We'll get there one day!!!
