Instant Pot, decluttering and Netflix........

Remember my Instant Pot post from Tuesday?  It seems everyone who has one loves it and uses it.  I am still on the fence, so will wait until the Black Friday sale in November and revisit the idea.  I think I can manage to live without one until then.

I am still working away at decluttering.  I have been trying to sell a number of unwanted items online with mixed results.  We have a local Facebook site for our area.  I have to shake my head at some people.  They are all gung-ho wanting your items and then just muck you about.  Other people its a simple transaction that goes by without a fuss.  Having a yard sale is a no, no where we live, another one of those delightful rules we must abide by........

Loving Netflix still.  We are now on season 9 on Midsumer Murders, and every episode we say, "we didn't see that coming!!"  We have yet to figure the plot out on any of those episodes........LOL

My mam had a big birthday last week.  Here is one of her cakes; my younger brother had this one made for her:

When you ask her how she is; she always says "I'm fine."  And she is always cleaning, that's why there are all the cleaning items on the cake.  Love Mrs. Brown.

Belated Birthday wishes to your Mum, a great cake. Decluttering is such a major job and takes so much longer than you anticipate. I donated so much stuff to charity in the end it was easier and quicker.

I kept going back to your instant pot post and came to the same conclusion as you - wait for Black Friday. I think I may even wait until my trusty slow cooker gives up the ghost but I din't see that happening any time soon.

yes, I haven't rushed out to buy one of those cookers either! I am really finding I do ok with a stove and an oven! Happy Birthday to your mother!

I think the instant pot is a bit pricey - I have a crockpot which I only use a couple times a month. Plus I usually only cook for two people, and often just one. AND my small appliance cupboard is overflowing with items I rarely use. I think I've talked myself out of it :)

I love mrs brown too! I'd of loved a cake like that one
Maybe rent a spot at a market just a one off and see how much you sell.
Yes selling stuff online can be a huge pain. I don't do it. Everyone wants your stuff but no one wants to pay

Happy Birthday to your dear Mum and good luck with the decluttering - I am just giving most of it to the Opportunity Shop - just easier. I love Netflix - so easy to use.
