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.

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
