As I continue to gradually declutter items which are no longer required, it often becomes evident that alternative locations make sense for other things.
It is quite a while since I had taken anything to the op shop but I had a bag in the cupboard which I had been adding to as I found things. Additionally, there were a couple of electronic devices which I also needed to pass along.
We are going away on holidays soon and have housesitters coming to stay and they will use the guest room. I knew that I would have to move the large collection of magazines which I had recently relocated from the floor of the wardrobe in the guest room to the drawers of the dressing table. I had done this so that we could store a couple of chairs in the wardrobe.

With the op shop stuff successfully delivered I had a spare shelf in the cupboard in my sewing room. It was the perfect size for the magazines. In all honesty, it is going to be easier to access them rather than having them lying in drawers.
The dressing table drawers are now empty and able to be used by the housesitters and any other future guests.
While I was in the guest room I noticed that the doors (vinyl finish) were somewhat discoloured and on closer inspection had some mould stains. Unfortunately, mould is a constant enemy in our climate.
I cleaned the doors using the lightly abrasive home-made cream cleanser and they look much better. I think it is the first time I have really scrubbed them in more than 10 years since they were first installed. They are now looking as good as new.
