I no longer use paper to line drawers and cupboards. Several years ago I found a deal on a large bundle of cotton tea towels. Now I use them, and I also line drawers in the refrigerator. When the time comes I dump them in the washer and dryer and return to use again. So easy, just fold to fit. No cutting and purchase of more paper.

@Huia if I may make a suggestion from painful experience, give yourself 24 hours between stopping the preparations and your guests arriving. I didn't over the new year when I had a guest and really suffered for it

Um, this is the day before they arrive.

Have you seen the film "Field Of Dreams"? Much of it is about a baseball field, built on the basis of "if you build it, they will come". (I won't say more!)
So I hope that if you declutter, they will come, as you wish.

I’ve started on the spare bedroom. Most of the clutter is mine but there is the odd thing of Mr Boogs (Odd being the right word!) they are sort of antiques which really need a visit to the Repair Shop!
So I’m bringing them down one at once with the label ‘charity shop, loft or bin?’ and it doesn’t move until it’s in one of those!
My clutter is stupid stuff like old coats which should have been binned months/years ago. I also need to sort out the many photo albums. I want to digitise them and then have them printed in photo books - much neater.
I’m determined to have a room with bed, cot, shelves, toy box and nothing else in hope of a (one day) visit from my son and family.
