Decluttering my porch was my second task in my declutter project! The first being my garage. I had already partially done this when we purchase the inflatable spa because we we needed to make space in the end of the porch to put it in.
This time I had a lot more help from the kids who helped to carry the rubbish to the skip and to sweep the porch afterwards. There was a few scraps between them as there are 3 older kids and only 1 broom and only 1 brush & pan. Taking turns was required but we got there.
Basically this area had become a dumping ground for cuts offs from building projects and the kids’ broken toys or bikes etc and this annoying carpet that the previous owners had glued all over the porch but turned into a slippy mossy mess in winter that I wanted pulled up and thrown out. I only kept the carpet that is around the spa simply because that area is completely covered and doesn’t get the rain.
Now that’s it’s clear, the kids have a lot more space to ride their scooters up and down freely. And now that the carpet is pulled up, the area is a lot easier to sweep and keep clean!
