Clutter, again this topic is on top. It has to be. I feel as if I'm always behind of everything. There are even a few things where I've missed deadlines. It is not a good feeling, that my taxes are not yet done.
I have to make difficult decisions right now: Do I really need this yogurt machine? Do I really need two blenders. The one I've bought from my first salary 30 years ago. How romantic. I have also 2 kitchen scales. One has a bowl the other not. I could use the bowl, I think, but I have also too many bowls, I guess up to 10. They are of different sizes of course and of different beauty. This all adds up.
I just returned from the dressmaker. This jacket that slept in my wardrobe for years (5 or so) either had to go or I had to get the sleeves shortened. Sleeves shorter is the better idea, I thought. I'm very curious now if I'll dress this jacket once the sleeves are shorter.
Big issue still is the goods that I bought for my online business in 2005. All the bags and carpets that are in my storage room, but also in my living room, because the storage room was too small. This stuff needs space, but serves for nothing. I must buy something so that I have something to sell, I remember, I thought when I wanted to make money with EBay and my own online shop. One day huge parcels came and then my rooms smelled of these new cotton bags and carpets. I found jobs again, my business was sleeping, I had no time. Always this lack of time. The carpets are still here and I'm so sure they won't walk away. When I don' t do anything with it, they will accompany me till my last hour here on earth. I know a shop that sells similar goods, perhaps I can sell them. Action. Tomorrow. Today it's too late.
In addition, this shop reminds me of a not so successful enterprise. Better to get rid of it.
I NEED SPACE. I NEED ROOM for new things.
There is also clutter on the PC. A few days ago I deleted all emails that I've sent on yahoo and google. Of course I have two accounts. Lately I learned how automatically the yahoo mails are directed to the google account. What progress. Yep a start is done here, too.
I'm currently reading a book: Stop clutter from stealing your life by Mike Nelson. A good book btw. I have of course more than one book on that topic here. But this one is good, too. This man knows what he is talking about. And stuff is stealing my life, too. Today I didn't go to the Mysore class, I knew I had to attack this stuff problem. Stuff. I attach feelings to stuff. I know better targets.
And now I know: the yogurt machine has to go. I don't think that I will ever replace it. One blender has to go, too.
How many salad servers do I need? I will reduce it to two: the one from South Africa I will keep and the silver ones. Sigh.
I'm so glad that I do not live in a house, but in a rather small flat. This alone sets limits already.
How is it with you? Have you too many things?
