Decluttering Me! Discovering the Marie Kondo way to declutter PART 3

Hi all,

So I've sorted out ALL my clothes, and makes for about 12 bags of clothes. New, old, tatty, prism etc. I've donated the first two bags I filled when I begun and with the other ten bags, I'm going to see if I can sell some stuff. I also have stuff for recycling so I need to bag that up. All in all a lot of stuff.

So the plans are going to a carboot sales. I think of doing it online but I stopped using eBay a long time ago, and really I can't be bothered with the postage. The same with Depo. It's new and sounds fab but it's the same old postage issues and buyers wanting something for nothing.

Also I just want this to be an easy process. To be honest it's really shipping/postage that is the big dealer. Also buyers. Saying that before I got bored on my eBay account, I did sell a lot.

There are lots of options for reselling but I want minimum hassle so I'm doing it the old fashion way. In a car book sale.

So the next stage is books which will be interesting because I write.

Marie Kondo Process Takeaway so far

I had a lot of cluttered. I've discovered lost things, new tights-pantie hose, lost items.  It has worked for me, but only using her method.  I've been doing the spark of joy thing which was quick surprising what I kept and have throw out. I have four items which didn't spark joy or neutrality, there was something. If felt like unfinished business so those I'm keeping. I feel guilty about it but they stay.

I'm going to start treating my remaining clothes with respect, as in the washing process. Not mixing clothes, the right drying, taking care,. FOLLOWING THE PROPER LAUNDRY INSTRUCTIONS.

 I'll also be doing a review maybe every three or six months.

It is a very emotional process but I feel a lot lighter. I rearranged my bedroom so now it's a lot larger. I probably need more storage space but I have a junk drawer that needs sorting - when I come to knickknacks like makeup etc, so I can probably use that.

Books next. That is scary. Books. So I'm pulling out my bookcases - I have six. Yes, six bookcases, and I shall be going through them. Oh and let me not forget the five boxes- plastic storage boxes. The those stacked in closets. Oh dear. This may be more hectic than the clothes.

It has been lingering on my mind for some reason. I don't like parting with books, so I'll see. Like some clothes were my emotional crutch. A lot of books are a massive emotional crutch.

I found my unused and still tagged clothes reflected my career aspirations but I got there without them. Some books reflect that too. Let's see.

Catch you later.

Daily Writing Journal: Mo Money Challenge - week 8 which means £8 in the tin!

£8 in coins So I'm on my second week on saving and still not sure. I'm not feeling the pinch per se, but it's hard thinking how am I going to maintain this. So I managed to get a few coins out and gather some change, but at some point I'll really need to organise this. I've put in four fifty pence pieces with come up to two pounds sterling and the rest in pound coins.  Remember the money tin from last week. Well it all went inside that.... How am I feeling? Slightly bored but I still have a long way to go..... Saving money is boring, spending is more interesting.

Searching for office christmas party venue, celebrating Momma AG birthday.

Rang to sing Momma A G happy birthday! Got to work early and did some of my goal work. Also Accounting Guru Boss showed me an easy way of planning. She is a genius. It's that simple so I'm going to practice her method of planning.  I must say I've learn plenty. Working with her is like one long professional master class with private tuition.  Glamorous colleague also gave me tips on completing a goal related task. All tasks are like elephants tackle the largest on in the morning. Red Jumper colleague took the day off for Black Friday. Apparently he's waking up at early to go on the internet looking for deals after which he'll go to the shopping centre. Told him I was going to wait until boxing day to get a new purse. Then after all the excitement he was like 'What am I going to do on Cyber Monday." Glamorous and I went looking for some where for our team christmas lunch. She wasn't having us eat in a pub. She has high standards. She was okay abo

Daily Writing Journal - #6 my urban lit African American romance. Went Christmas Shopping in House of Fraser and John Lewis.

Not much going. Well, it's Christmas! I went shopping yesterday after work to get some presents. I still have plenty more. House of Fraser is a good place to go. I feel it misses a lot of traffic because it's in between John Lewis and Debenhams.  I'm talking about departmental stores on Oxford Street, London. Okay let's talk about writing. Or maybe not. It's the festive season. In John Lewis , they also had the Elton John Experience. That was nice. I feel compelled to show some pictures but that means downloading all the pictures in my phone. I'll get more organised about this as I go along. Then again this is just a journal of my writing. So writing, well I said I'd skip that but I did manage to write another synopsis. What do you think? Synopsis Angelica Washington is a strong woman takes family responsibility seriously, but things aren't always as perfect as they seem .  A bad family ordeal and an impulsive urge leads her to the arms of a h
