Today I done some organisation/minimalsim so I thought I would write up. It has been a long time since I did anything major. Recently I was sick for 2 months. So during my down time, I realise that I STILL have too much stuffs and I am not really using some stuffs. So I have been wanting to re-start my organisation/minimalism project. I am far from what I wanted to achieve but I am working towards there.
So I went through my wardrobe + cupboards and throw away some stuffs. I also threw away stuffs I no longer used – an product of a Kickstarter project that I have supported (GREAT product but I get an headache from using it!) + some clothes, hobbies that I am no longer interested in – collecting miniature, analogue photography. It was a painful to remove them as although I do not spend time with them anymore, but I did invest my money in it. But in the end, I decided to take the plunge. And I feel….. so good!
So here is what I have learnt:
– THINK before investing into a new hobby. I am a Gemini which means I am always looking to try new things. It was really bad in the past but it get better these days. I am constantly reminding myself to be commit to the hobbies that I truly love.
– THINK before purchasing anything. I only buy things I really need and I will wait. Like recently, I am planning a trip to Korea so I need some winter clothings. I think through a few times before committing to get some things.
– Get QUALITY product if need to replace. Instead of buying something cheap that required replacement or duplicate because it doesn’t work that well, buy a quality product.
– Don’t get attached to things. Recently I have a conversation with a colleague. She asked me if I keep my paper planners (I used one every year). I said yes. Today, I realise that there is no point of keeping them if I don’t refer to them anymore. I threw away 3 of them. I would probably keep my hobonichi (the paper planner for this year) because I wrote a lot of stuffs in it. But the key point is try not to keep things because of the fond memories
After today, I would continue to organise further… There is still so much to be done!
