ADVICE YOU NEED TO BOOKMARK
As my daughter approaches double digits early next year, I can relate to this quote in the post where Robin’s friend said this about her 10 year old daughter “She’s already lived half the amount of time she’s going to be with you….” YIKES!
If you do not have teenagers, you can still put into practice some of the advice, but I would also bookmark it for future reference.

SELLING CLOTHES WITH A DIFFERENCE (FOR NEW ZEALANDERS)
iswish is an interesting way to de-clutter your family’s wardrobe. You sell your clothes for credits, and then use those credits to make purchases from the range of clothes, bag etc on their website. Niceeee!

A GREAT CAUSE IN WELLINGTON
I just found a couple of unused curtains that I was wondering what to do with. The Sustainability Trust has set up a Curtain Bank, so that low income residents and those with chronic health conditions have access to free curtains to keep warm during the winter and keep heating costs down. They even accept curtain rails and fabric to make curtains too!
(I emailed them to see if there was anywhere I could drop off the curtains locally, and they said they were doing work in my area and came and picked up the curtains from my house!)
