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.

Weekly update. Verdict on Check It movie, lack of black male role models and normal boring stuff. Oh and I'm still fat.

Hello everyone! So new focus. Yes, I never know what to write about. Never know what’s interesting so I’m just going to write for myself…if that makes sense. There are slew of blogs trying to change the world, radicalise the world, and revolutionise the world so I’m not doing that here. Not am I going to think - oh will people find this interesting or boring. To be frank, I’m a pretty boring person but hey ho let me write.  I’m thinking of changing my gym. Well right now I’m a member of Virgin Active Health Club which styles itself as a life style gym, and to be honest the only thing I use is the hot tub, sauna and steam room. In the three years I’ve been a member, I’ve only been in the gym about ten times, gone for two classes - they are always fully book so I only really just use the hydro-pool/spa, and steam room. I’m a member of the Islington Angel branch which is were all the posh liberals are.  This is a picture of the spa, and pool. The pool can be a bit chill at times.
