Pieces of My Life

Day 12 peoples! OMG I reckon today’s unclutter was the hardest to let go of…

Before

Behind the crate are 2 shelves of books and old notebooks from High School.

Books from High School Yr 7 to 10

All the exercise books are going away! Threw them in the recycle bin, and that was the hardest thing to do… I felt like I’m throwing all my knowledge away.. but I have to be realistic, I know I’m never going to read it again, and I haven’t touched them in at least 6-10 years…

Work in Progress:

  

So finally once it is all gone, I have space to put some of those boxes for my camera and Ipad into the bookshelf instead of on the crate, and look! There’s room on my bookshelf again!

After

Bedroom Corner

I tried to go through the crate and see what I can chuck… not much… so just piled it back on…

Now the only shelves left are the top 2 shelves of my big bookshelf, and the bookshelf right next to my bed. After that, it would be the drawers, I know that there are a lot of things to chuck in them…

Wow what a morning… did the bookshelf with the Hello Kitty things… Now it’s all moved to 2 boxes… 4 shelves of Hello Kitty Things all moved into boxes now. Gosh I used to be obsessed! I had Hello Kitty everything!

Before:

Hello Kitty!

There’s a lot of dirt there! Work in Progress:

    

Had to move my bed mattress before I could reach down to do the cleaning…

Now I have so much more room for more books!

Time to buy some more books!

I’m waiting for my Derrick Storm Deadly Storm Graphic Novel and Heat Rises to come!

I quite proud of what I have done today and it’s not even noon yet! Watching CSI NY right now… Did uncluttering early today as I need to go out this arvo and night to the city.

OMG!! Still overwhelmed by the amazing Season 4 premiere of Castle! Rise was soooo amazing! Also found out that it was actually trending on twitter in Australia! lol of all places!

Nearly completely forgot about my unclutter project for today as I wanted to watch and rewatch the episode so many times….

But alas I found a little section to clean up… The bookshelf right next to my bed, the bottom shelf.

So this is what it was like before:

Messy!

Really not much to clean except for the 2 magazine boxes to the side… I know there are a lot of crap in those…

Work in progress:

I pulled everything out, found some old primary school workbooks! Threw them away, but kept some because it had diary entries in it and it was very interesting to see how I perceive the world when I was young…

So this is the end result, with most of the primary school stuff put into a bag, to be moved elsewhere… but don’t know where at the moment until the other bookshelves are cleaned as well….

Two empty Magazine holders.... What to put in there now?

Now it is definitely getting harder… what section will I do tomorrow… as the sections I have left require a weekend to do…

Another day has gone by… Castle is back tomorrow! I can’t wait!!!!

Today I focused on one of the shelves on my big bookshelf… This one had a lot of folders and I just threw away some of the stuff so I get more space…

So this is what it was like before:

Work in progress:

    

End product… Looks kinda the same… but that’s how my folders will fit, but at least there is a bit more room now and looks a bit neater..

After Cleanup... with a bit more room!

Ok… now with that done… I’ll prob work on the shelf above or below tomorrow… but which one looks easier? Cos I know I’ll be spending more time watching TV tomorrow!! Castle is finally back! That 3 month Hiatus was torture!!!

 

Sorry for not blogging yesterday… I did end up cleaning a little bit yesterday, but I was out most of the day for Chiropractor Appointment, then went out to the city for the Italian Film Festival. Didn’t get home til 11pm so too tired to blog progress.

So I’ll blog 2 days of progress today, so these 2 days I have focused on the black bookshelf. Yesterday just cleaned up the top of it, and today I wiped down and cleaned out everything in it.

Reminder of what it looks like before:

Side Bookshelves

First thing, all the magazines are gone! I’m only keeping 5 months worth at a time:

  

Work in Progress:

    

After completely stripping the black bookshelf, I chucked some old folders, and other things on the shelf, and now it is only books

Cleaned Up Black Bookshelf

I know it’s not that much different, but at least I was able to put all of my textbooks now on that shelf… I had books sitting on my desk and chairs cos I had no place to put them before. I’m quite proud of myself of letting go some of the things… Now the question is what should I work on tomorrow? As the other bookshelves really require a weekend and not one night.

gosh i have a lot of books… really need a bigger room to fit all my books, running out of space out of my 3 bookshelves…

need more space...

need more space...
