Decluttering Me! Discovering the Marie Kondo way to declutter PART 4 - BOOKS

Hello there,

I'm dealing with books which aren't as easy as clothes. Not easy at all. So I've broken a few rules already with my categories

  • Keepers - sparks of joy
  • Leavers - no spark of joys
  • Five chapter test - for books where no joy but haven't read
  • Writing technique books - still needs to test.
So fair I have nearly three boxes of books to discard.
 
Quite a good selection - like my cookbooks - I've put about six in the leaving box. Mostly because the recipes weren't unique and I no longer cook as much. Most of them were also celebrity cookbooks so Gwyneth Paltrow, Carol Vonnderman and a few others. I've kept the sliver spoon and another reference book and a few others - just the books with classic recipes.

A few writing books are going and also non-fiction. 

However the cheat are the maybes....the plan is to read the first five chapters then decide, normally I'm done by the first page or two. YOU ARE NOT ALLOWED TO DO THIS BUT I AM.

With this process of elimination, I've been about to increase the non-keeper books. Also I'm recovering books I actually like.

This is probably going to be the longest process....nah....I still have papers. I still have papers to sort.

So far so good.

Yay

Annaxx

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.
