Gonna Marie Marie Kondo my home

I watched an Netflix episode of her system of cleaning organizing and just trash anything I will never wear or use. One thing is dump all my stuff depending on the room into a pile and ask if this thing bring me joy or usefulness one by one and trash or giveaway it away.

I just did my bedside table. It was a mess and junkie. Now it’s this! Should have done before after.

I did this somewhat before the last move. I had large garbage bags full of just spare cables that I had saved and didn’t need. Must have had over third old AC adapters that outlived the devices they came with, too. Pared down my tech bits bout about a third. A good start.

Decluttering is good for the soul…I used to collect books, cds and movies. Now my books are on kindle: My music is digital and my movies are streamed…

I think it’s a great thing to let go of stuff in this digital world if you can take it…Not for everyone but declutter is good!

My place has been driving me mad. Can’t find things under junk. It’s gotten so bad. But I’m gonna do it one area at a time.

ohh, I have good library in my basement, can’t part with my books I’ve read.
the only time I really part with anything is if it’s damaged.
it’ll be a bi’tch to clean out this place when I’m dead.

@rogueone true. I really only need stuff on my phone and iPad. Gonna scan documents with an app and just keep digital copies.

Lol. I think the same @daze. I would feel bad for anyone to go through and clean up. But I am gonna try this out. I might be able to maintain it. Hopefully.

As I say @Daze …It’s not for everyone but if you love tactile books I don’t begrudge you. I grew up on them and moved endless times with boxes of books…it was finally good to let go of that. Simply my new self.

I hate prepping food finding a clean plate is a ■■■■■. Fork and spoon knives too.

We got rid of 3/4 of our books before the last move. Found digital versions instead. Much easier on the back.

Yeah. Making that mental flip was invigorating. I moved overseas for a couple of years with a suitcase and a carry on…

I came back and I’ve got rid of most things. Dont’ get me wrong. I still have a lot of toys but other things are so much more basic. I even keep my clothes to a basic two day cycle.
