  2. Lighting that’s too bright or hard
  3. Colours in your home that you don’t love and feel right living with

  7. Paintings on the wall that you don’t love
  8. Photos that you don’t love to look at or mean something
  9. Regret
  10. The coffee table in your living room
  11. The top of the fridge
  12. Old notes that you no longer need
  13. To Do lists that hang around not done
  14. Random phone numbers that could be put into one single contact list
  15. Chores that stop you having family time
  16. Exercise that’s too tough to fit in with family life so you put it off – walk daily instead

  18. Old food in the fridge

  24. Bras that no longer support you
  25. Knickers that have gone grey

  28. Your goals for this year
  29. Your contact list for friends and family
