So, Im supposed to be doing work, which obviously led me to the need to have a bit of a tidy. I bought a new dress and a load of velvet hangers today so I decided to go through all my dresses and put them on the nice hangers. I ended up counting them and I own 38 dresses, I really don’t understand how this is possible and what even more annoying is that when I go out, I can never decide what to wear as I end up thinking everything looks awful on me. I have an absolutely massive wardrobe that spans the entire length of my large room and is just on ceiling height, and I just about cannot fit anymore clothes in. I kind of feel in the mood when I feel I need to get rid of everything I own and start again. I have a large bookcase and multiple shelf in my room all of which are filled with books, photo frames, ornaments and other bits and pieces, when Im looking at them now I can just see clutter, but at the same time I cant get rid of any of it as they are either things passed down from family members or things that Ive had since childhood, Im too sentimental for my own good. I was looking through an interiors magazine today and I would quite like a bedroom with a bed, and a few pretty drawers with some nice photo frames and flowers dotted here and there. I thought this could be the case when I move as as I thought would be ok as my room at home would stay exactly the same, however my mum just informed me that I have to take everything with me. So im either going to have to move and display the pretty clutter, hide it away and feel bad or get rid of it and feel bad. Im just hoping that by the time I move out, my mum would have changed her mind. 1 month ago

Normally Im quite an organised person, meaning I have a system and put things in their place, but recently Ive been a bit lazy. Bank statements and wage slips have just got thrown on the shelf in my cupboard instead of being properly filed, and when ive been in a rush Ive emptied my bag and purse of receipts and thrown them on my desk. Today was the day for a bit of reorganising.
I filed away my recent bank statments in my existing folder, and put all my wage slips in chronological order in a new file, along with my work contract and other imprtant work stuff. Next came the receipts, I file away receipts of things ive bought in the past month in case I need to take them back for any reason, and them after this time I get rid of them.
Now I can actually see the surface of my desk I feel a little better :-) 4 months ago
to clean out my closets and get rid of any clothes I dont wear and give them to charity. Over the years I have got better at this as I used to only give away a few bits and bobs as I was convinced I may still wnat to wear the other stuff; now im a bit more ruthless. I have a whole closet full of cardigans that I refused to give away, but now I realise that I only ever wear my long cardigans, not my ones that end at hip height, so that are earmarked for the charity pile. Im pretty sure I can gather together a few tops and skirts aswell. Out with the old, in with the new :-) 4 months ago
So right now I have a load of college assignments to do, they’re not hard, just time consuming and boring. As im sitting here staring at my computer screen I just keep thinking how I need to tidy a bit, as I have clothes and handbags all over my floor.
Why does cleaning always seem more favourable than working. I dont understand how I can sit here just listening to music and thinking about not wanting to work when I could just do it and get it over and done with. 6 months ago
This feels like a never ending task. When I think Im getting nearer the end, I realise there a whole other thing I need to do. Anyone would think my one bedroom was a huge mansion with all the stuff I manage to fit into it.
Today I counted all my shoes, I own 48 pairs. No wonder it was a tight squeeze in my shoe cupboard. My mum pointed out that at the top of one one my closets I had a huge shelf stuff full of soft toys from when I was younger, which to be honest had become invisible to me as it too high to be eye level. So as we had a few charity bags that had been posted I thought I may as well give them to charity and make more space. This was harder than I thought as I remember a lot of them from when I was younger and they used to be my favourites. All in all I kept half and gave half away. Im too sentimental for my own good.
Im also currently going through a bottom drawer full of scarves and belts. 8 months ago
Currently I am sitting on my bedroom floor completely surrounded by all my art stuff. Today I thought it would be a good idea to tidy the shelf at the top of my wardrobe, containing all my art stuff, and rubbish that I couldnt fit anywhere else. Im hoping that when this shelf is neat, I can move all my university stuff here, freeing space on a shelf in the other section of my wardrobe. Then I can tidy my built in cupboard and move some stuff to the free shelf. Basically this is just dramatic reshuffling, while getting rid of some bits.
Im quite enjoying looking through all my art books with a cup of tea and my ipod on shuffle. Ive come across songs I loved back in 2006 and realised I still love them. 8 months ago
I decided to re-evaluate all my high school stuff. This time I actually got it all out of my cupboard and looked at it. I must have been through it previously as I only found years 10 through 12, that or its all hidden somewhere else. I kept all my biology and geography stuff as they were my favourite subjects, and all my completely, neatly filed coursework. I did however throw away all my business studies stuff as I really dont care about it anymore.
Now its neatly stacked up in my cupboard :-) 8 months ago
I have a few shelves in various cupboards, plus a whole wicker basket full of stuff from secondary school. I know that I no longer need these things, and that I dont look at them, but do I really want to throw them away? This is where I tend to be sentimental about things, as I may want to look at them when im older. I know for a fact that I am never going to get rid of my university things, these are nicely organised into 3 giant folders so its not too much of a problem.
I really dont think I can do it, so maybe for now I’ll just tidy things. I have a real problem with letting things go, its the same with ornanements ive acquired from dead relatives (great aunt and great grandad)- they dont really fit with my decorating scheme, yet I feel like I cant get rid of them because of who they belonged to and the fact that they are old and were once loved by someone. 9 months ago
First it was books, second clothes, now Ive moved onto pajamas. I have so many different pajamas in my drawer, most of which I no longer wear, either because they have small holes in them, or due to the fact Ive grown and the bottoms are a little short. In light of this I bought myself one brand new set of pajamas today and went through the drawer, either binning items, or setting them aside for charity. 9 months ago
It is the time of year when I go through all of my summer clothes and get rid of things I havent worn in a few years, and will probably never wear, and give them to charity. One thing I will never get rid of are shoes, even though I own about 40 pairs. As undoubtedly I will want to wear them in the future even if I dont regularly wear them now. I just need a better place to store them as my closet is not big enough. Do I think I could convince my parents to let me have the spare bedroom as a walk in closet…somehow I think not.
I did the same with my books a few weeks ago. Normally I keep books as I like to read them again, but I had a load of books from when I was younger, and books I did not like, and so took about 15 of them down to the Oxfam store. 9 months ago
Im not a messy person per se, I just leave the odd couple of clothes of my floor, but completely tidy, dust and vacuum once a week. What I need to do is to go through everything and clear stuff out. I know for a fact that I have lots of old stuff like games in my cupboard from when I was younger. I also have a lot of ornaments that Ive acquired from families members, a lot of the things they got when they were young so they’re quite old, and I just cant bring myself to get rid of them because I feel they are a part of who I am. So I try to move things around and bunch them up to also make room for more things, but it just makes the room look cluttered. I will fare much better when I get my own house as there will be more room to spread my things out, however at some point I will just end up where I am now and haver to start all over again. 9 months ago
