Smiley Sunday

Sunday morning (the morning after my first official decluttering day), when I left my room to go downstairs for my morning coffee, I was greeted by a lovely clear computer nook. "Oh yeah! I cleaned this out yesterday! *smile* " I thought to myself. What an awesome way to start the day!

The reading

The fourth book I've been reading is The Joy of Less, A Minimalist Living Guide: How to Declutter, Organize, and Simplify Your Life - by Francine Jay (298 pages). I'm a little more than half way through and I'm a little disappointed. I feel (so far) that this is redundant information considering the other 3 books that I've read last week (one by the same author). I will finish it, in case there is another little lesson or at least more reinforcement to the concepts I already have on minimalism.

The next move

I've still been contemplating my next move. I've taken a few before photos of the various areas of my house because I've actually started moving stuff out of their old designated areas and into the hands of family and friends. I wanted people to get the real picture of the before and after, and how could I do that without taking a photo of the real before?

So the plan this weekend is to tidy up the garage so that I will have room to put the undesirables until they find a new home. And then I'll let family and friends rummage through these things and choose whatever they could use. Whatever is left over will go to charity.

That's it for now... Stay tuned for more on my journey to simplicity.
