Pieces of My Life

Yay! Long weekend coming up and my NCIS S8 and Chuck S3 dvds have arrived just in time!

Keeping it simple today… wanna rest…

Work in progress:

After… a bit more tidy…

Drawer After

As promised… I did 2 drawers today… but they don’t look that much different before and after… spot the difference! I found that I have a lot of erasers, stationery and notebooks! Gosh I have enough stationery to last a lifetime! I think I’ll need to find time again to go thru the drawers and segregate the things into type and organise the 5 drawers into categories… but before that happens, I’ll just throw out everything that isn’t needed first

Before:

Drawer 1

Drawer 2

Work in progress:

  

Freaky eh? There’s so much stuff!

After, not much difference, but at least the drawer isn’t filled up to the top… much!

Drawer 1

Drawer 2

Another drawer down… Gosh I found a lot of crap in this one as well… Stickers, Temp Tattoos, Toy Story 1 Iron On sheets…. All going into the bin. Found 2 gloves… but missing the other halves, and also apparently a knitted sweater from my baby years… WHAT DO I PUT IN MY DRAWERS?!?!

Work In Progress:

Everything is stripped and scattered on the floor…

Nice and tidy, more room now to put more stuff in it… but trying to keep to a minimum and sure that there are more things that I could have chucked from that drawer…

Finished reading Heat Rises today and the new episode Heroes and Villains was AWESOME!!! With all the nerdy references, I was totally Geeked OUT!!

Did a drawer today… not much difference, at least it closes properly now… had so much in it before I had trouble keeping everything in before closing.

After

There is a little more space… but not much more…Haiz… I think today’s unclutter wasn’t very successful.

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…

 

Did a little drawer tidying today… but after cleaning out some stuff… it doesn’t look that much different 😦

Spot the difference:

Before

After

Really not that different is there? Just some of the cables missing….

Grey’s Anatomy 2 hour season premiere! OMG loved it!

Just a slow day today… had to watch my TV first.. NCIS, Glee and Body of Proof all premiered today! Yay!

So I decided just to clean up a bit of the  clothes rack area…

Before:

Before...

Just cleaned up the stuff and threw away some of the boxes…

Trash that needs to go in the bin!

After the cleaning and putting away a lot of bags… and this photo is prob a bit deceiving as my camera bag wasn’t put back on top of the black box as I was using it to take photos…

Camera Bag is missing in this pic...

Prob have to do the next bit of the big bookshelf tomorrow…

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:

 

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.

Day 3! OMG still going… did the other half of the desk today.. doesn’t look that much different, but it has actually changed a lot, I threw a lot of my documents out or scanned them onto my computer.

Look at the right hand side of the desk, that was what it looked like before:

Desk 1

and the work in progress today:

  

What it looks like now, as you can see the pile is smaller, mostly my glasses and their cases… Gosh I have a lot of pairs of glasses:

 

Desk Corner

Hmmm will be mostly out tomorrow… must pick a smaller area to work on… prob the top of the black bookcase….

I found that a lot of this is quite difficult until I get to clean out the drawers…
