When you’re decluttering, it can be shocking how old some things are. I thought this paint tin was maybe 3 years old, but when I opened it, the entire tin was rusty and crusty inside. So I checked the date on the label. 2006! It was 6 years old. Ouch. I needed to save that paint for touch ups, so here’s my less than-two-dollars-storage -solution: a small plastic tub with secure fitting lid. Glad I didn’t leave it any longer – the paint would have spoiled I think.
What old issues could you check on that might need your attention? Is it a dripping tap, a broken tail light on the car (I’m guilty of that one) or Christmas decorations that still need to go away? I’d love to hear about a problem you’re now motivated to fix.
