What to do with Stuff


Perfection Paralysis is often a trait found in Stuffoholics so this page sat in drafts waiting for it to be as good as the sites it signposts. Decided one day that one of the tips from this journey is Do Something .. that’s right it may not be the perfect solution but at least you’ll have learnt something by trying. So here goes ….

Did you find your way here because keen to do something with your stuff but not sure how or what. Maybe these links to good advice and projects will help to get you on your way, after all who knows what you could find to do with that stuff behind the sofa (or even the sofa!)

Please note though that one R that’s missing is RUBBISH. If you want to just throw it away you might want to read this first.
