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

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
