Discovering the Marie Kondo way to declutter - Tackling Clothes

Hello Internet Family,

Things have been so busy at work and preparing for my self publishing venture. Oh man, it has been a journey and I haven't even started. Anyway, I was reading a magazine left into the office kitchen and discovered an article on Marie Kondo.

So looking round a few articles I've discover a few tit-bits. I have lots of clutter due to my home being refitted and moving stuff from room to room, then having the hectic jobs. I also have massive of books and papers all over the joint.  Plus you can read about my story about how I struggled to become an associate.

Anyway I was so deep in clutter, I could not figure a way out. But yesterday, I read the article and decided to try.

I love the folding bit. I haven't read any of her books yet. I mean I have so many so trying to curb the habit. So many books on organisation too -okay about three plus I joined the fly lady group. However I loved the categories not room.  Then again all my stuff is all over the joint so it made sense.

A lot of people are making fun of her talking to clothes and all that jazz. But to be fair, take what you want. So not having the massive time available for a deep sorting of loving and supporting clothes, I did a quick sort of the pile around me. I did the whole folding thing even of the stuff I found I didn't need anymore. It was very interesting.

Currently I have three bags of clothes I don't need to 'support' me anymore. However some went back into the pile.

Of course being typically disorganised I'm doing this out of sync. Yes, I had a vision of clear surfaces etc. No I didn't get all my clothes out. I need to do this in stages. But at least I started.

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.

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.
