Who’s the Mummy: The Bedroom Secrets Edition

This week, in support of TK Maxx and Cancer Research UK’s Give up Clothes for Good campaign, and as part of the Tots100 Blogging Carnival, I’m offering an insight into my bedroom secrets – and specifically my wardrobe.

Why? What did you think this post was about?


So, in summary, take your unwanted, quality clothes to TK Maxx this April (including the ones that you can’t fasten any more) and they’ll be sorted and sold via Cancer Research UK, with the money going towards research into treating and preventing childhood cancer (funds raised from the sale of clothing donated via this campaign will only be used for children’s cancer research, if you’re wondering why you wouldn’t just take it down to your local charity shop). And that seems like A Good Thing.

Disclosure: TK Maxx is a client. But those are really all my clothes.


Sally is a full-time blogger and founder of the Tots100, Trips100, Foodies100 and HIBS100 communities, along with the MAD Blog Awards. She spends a bit too much time on the Internet. She’s also a very happy Mum to Flea, the world’s coolest ten year old.

    Such a lovely organized bedroom. I should take a video of my bedroom where we have perfected the floordrobe, well maybe not. Now what size are those boots?

      LOL – I was gonna ask exactly that question re Boot size 🙂

      • 16th March 2012 / 9:38 am

        Size 5.5. Coming soon to a charity shop near you…

    Oh my god, your bedroom is so organised. Do you want to come round and do mine?

    • 16th March 2012 / 9:46 am

      Ha! I can’t help myself, it’s a compulsion.

    Oh I’ve got loads of clothes I could pass on so I’m off to fill some bags. I’n only bothered by one thing though – are those books in alphabetical order? For a fleeting moment I thought there was perhaps one out of place and this is greatly bothering me now.

      I don’t alphabetise in the bedroom, I group by genre. But I’m glad you cared enough to ask 🙂

    Wow, I have serious wardrobe envy! Why oh why can I never get the inside of my wardrobe to look like that! I’ll be have a good root through mine for some stuff to donate and a good tidy up while I’m at it!

      I’m fairly ruthless at clearing out stuff I don’t wear – and I don’t really buy a lot!

    Can I have your bedroom please? How come you don’t have any kids stuff in there…..is it just my kids who dump stuff all over the house? 🙂

      I simply don’t allow her to leave crap in my room. I have two HUGE baskets on the landing and when I go to bed, if there’s anything in my room that shouldn’t be there, it goes in the basket. Simple 🙂

      Also, threatening with sticks works well.

    Its so tidy. I’m assuming you tidied up first. Please say its not always like that! Although the odd sock basket makes me feel better. A great idea though. Will definitely be contributing.

      No, I am that tidy. I always think that things being ordered gives me an entirely illusory sense of control in a chaotic world.

    I am so seriously impressed with your organisation that I had to write. It makes me want to go and tidy up my horrendous cupboard but then I realise…I wouldn’t know where to start. Fab post and I will do the ‘cull’ this weekend.

      It’s a soothing process, I promise.

    You actually don’t iron?? I only ask because I don’t iron (clearly I don’t iron, I fail to understand why anyone irons) but my folded up t-shirts don’t look anything like that. Possibly because they’re not folded up, but that’s details.

    Anyway, like the new look – did I miss that the other day? – too. Am going back to look sadly at the state of both my blog and my wardrobe.

      No, I don’t iron. EVER. I don’t own an iron, or an ironing board. Haven’t done since, erm, well, since I left home 20 years ago, basically. If you dry things on a clothes airer (we don’t have a tumble drier either) they come out pretty much flat.

    I am in awe. Forget the order of the wardrobe, why do you not have any crap lying around?

    • 17th March 2012 / 9:59 am

      Honest, my bedroom is like my little sanctuary, it’s my one calm space so I tend to keep it uncluttered if I can – it’s not a perfect art, but I try!
