It has been a long time since I do a random post!
So here it is…
I have been attempting to keep up with my journal (as usual). I always love Kikki K’s 365 but the price put me off. I found an cheaper alternative from Taobao but I am still not updating it daily. I always say this but next year, I would try to do it on a daily basis. In the meantime, I would just write whenever I feels like to.
I have been watching too much soap!
I am currently watching a old soap of mine. I loveeeee that soap when I was in still in school but school have prevented me from watching it properly. I been wanting to catch up on it for several years and found it online a few weeks ago. It is addictive as I know all the characters so well. At the same thing, I seen things from a new angle. I realise that it has becoming too addictive a couple of weeks back and have since implemented a system where I watch it on alternate days. This allows me to work on other tasks and hopefully be more efficient!
I finally cancelled my HP subboxes!
I was very determined to cancel the Lootcrate ones as they are rather trashy. I was never satisfy with any of the box with the amount of money put in. Although it was licensed products, but they look simply cheap looking. GeekGear is abit hard to let go as they generally have better products (Although one month I received some childish rubber band and silicon mold which I would never use – safety concern!) I delayed the cancellation by skipping the next renewal but I decided it was enough. I wasn’t particularly excited for the box that I received. I forgot to skip the month! It was good but I have too much of the similar products – tees, posters, enamel pins.. It was just too much for a learning minimalist! So I pulled the plug a few days and feels happy!
But I subscribed to a new box!
My purchase of a new planner regain my interest for stationaries as I am so excited to for the new year to start writing. One of the accessories I stopped myself from buying is the Hobonichi memo pad. I decided that Field Note (which I always wanted to try out) would fit in the need. So I came across their subscription packs which seems too intriguing for me! Before I knew it, I purchased the subscription box and 2 packs of the limited edition packs (to save on shipping ha!). I would keeping them for next year to use along with my new hobo 🙂 I know I have many notebooks but I do not have compact ones to slot into the hobo cover.
I have been reducing my wardrobe. It hasn’t been easy but I try to get rid of clothes slowly! What I do is pack the clothes I do not wear in a box/plastic bag but I do not throw it away immediately. But I would throw it after a few days. This would allows me to realise that the clothes are useless to me since I don’t wear it.
I have a dilemma for books. I have dig out two stacks of old novels that I do not want to keep. But as a bookish person, I find it hard to get rid of it.
Other than that, I am still working hard at NOT SPENDING on unnecessary thing. I keep reminding myself in my planner etc.
