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.

My African American & Black Love Romance Adventure Nearly Ready After Four Years.

Thanks for dropping by and taking the time to read this. This post is going to be about my upcoming black love and African American contemporary romance release, which I think tentatively will be late this year or early 2024. It will be a six-part serialised novel, and I'll reveal the date nearer the time. It has been five years since my last black love romance novel. I have two novellas published on Amazon, and I'm  pleased to finally say, I'm about to publish again. It's been a long time.  I planned to release this book in February 2019, but after a long writer's block and other things, it had taken me this long to complete it.  If you follow this blog on and off, I've spoken about it a lot over the years. I'm thinking maybe I should relabel those blog posts as a series of how it developed.  The Story Description The names have changed well from Angelica to Pippa but it's fine.  Everyone wants someone special but PIPPA MILLER thinks not her. She

HAPPY NEW YEAR - LET THE GOALS ROLL

Hello all. Happy New Year! So last year was awesome for me because I managed to achieve one goal. The biggest goal which was to get a new job. And that came with financial reward as well. Yay! It was hard, challenging, horrible. I hate change but I had to get out of the rut I was in. Dudes, I was desperate to move. So I dug deep, did my interview practice, attended a number of interviews and hit one. Yay. Now longer gaming. I didn't need the escapism with my new positive work environment. I also abandoned the iPhone family and went Android. To cut a long story short, I got bought an iPhone 8 but it was faulty - however Apple weren't transparent about their return policy - ALWAYS ASK ABOUT RETURN POLICY. Nor did they believe the phone was faulty. It was. Anyway I was so disgusted the arrogance of the 'apple people', I decided instead of getting a replacement to spend my money elsewhere. I'm still part of the Apple family. But the Apple Store sales assist

Finally I'm getting close to a release date for my urban Black Love African America Romance now Pippa & Leyton

I'm working on a pre-release campaign and it isn't going how I'd like it. However if you have being reading me on and off, you'll know I've been writing some novels-in-progress for the longest times!  I stopped writing about it because it just got EMBARRASSING especially when I planned to release this book in 2019. Yes, five years ago! But it's nearly there.  Leyton & Pippa The heroine started off being called Angelica but I kept on misspelling it so I changed it to Pippa. If you look under the label Angelica & Leyton a lot will come up.  Anyway I'm exciting to say, I'm getting reading for publication soon.  Its going to be a six-part serialised instalment, and I'll have details nearer the time.  Maybe A Six Months Countdown I'm planning between three to six months, however when the details are clear, I'll write a post. I'm also doing an extended blog posts on another blog but I'll keep it short and simple here.
