Project Simplify - Week 1 Results

I'm a bit late with the post, but I didn't give up. I'm just late with the post, but about the challenge: I made it! Week one was a great challenge, since we tend to let the mess grow into our wardrobes as times passes, specially when we get more and more clothes and shoes and stuff and some things are not properly used or remembered (so we should let them go). I started a bit late in the project, since I didn't hear about it since Friday 11 (and it started on Monday of this same week, and since I couldn't stay at home to deal with it properly, I made it the next Monday and Tuesday, then started the project of week 2).

As a result, I ended up with a huge plastic bag of trash (with some old panties, old flabby socks, lots of rubbish, expired medicines and cosmetics), a huge tote bag with things, clothes, hats, a Beatles picture, handbags and some shoes to donate that I gave to Luci, the woman that cleans my house every 15 days. She always get things from me when I'm in the giveaway mode. I'm glad that she always let the stuff I don't need anymore get a better destiny than catching dust on my wardrobe.

So I bought 6 pairs of socks and discarded old ones, and also some panties to substitute the shameful ones, a dozen hangers (will need more) and some cleaning materials.

I still want to get my wardrobe reformed but it's not time yet ($), so I made some adjustments for now. Since I painted its doors at the end of 2010, I'm still procrastinating ($) to find nice knobs/thingies for it, so don't look at that for now. Just wasn't in the mood to put the old ones back.

Part 3 I will publish later, since I'm tired and need to sleep a bit. I'll edit this same post, so check it out later again. Then I explain why I put my things this way in there. :)
Will post the Second Part of the challenge too, the dusty one... papers were harder to handle for their allergy capabilities. Now I'm even getting medicines to survive them. lol

Declutter time! Project Simplify

In the last few days I was thinking about my life and the stuff that is still making me sad about it and I think the mess around me is one of the main causes of this stuck-in-the-shit-forever kind of behaviour and feelings that results in more and more mess in my mind that reflects in my routine and more physical mess around in a vicious circle. So since I found this interesting project today, I decided to join it and start decluttering my life and the spaces around me the best I can. It will be hard. VERY hard. Specially living with a crazy old man that collects every piece of shit he founds in the trash can. Yeah, he's that sick. So wish me luck.
I'll try to finish the first part this weekend since I'm beginning a bit late. But I'm sure I can do it. :)
