i’ve been reading Konmari, as you know, and started to throw away stuff at the office that just piled up and accumulated over the years. newspapers i got from eating breakfast at mcdonalds and jollibee, flyers from shops, even readings i never got to read. now they’re in a pile in the trash.
and i can’t believe how really therapeutic it is to have this declutter your space. it gives me breathing room and releaves me a great deal. it de-stresses me a lot!
now, i just have to go through the boxes of gadgets i still have piled up here.
i know, it’s not following Konmari’s rules but what she says about it is true: it is a personal problem that you deal with and you will feel a lot better letting go of things. you think you might regret throwing that one thing “you just might need in the future” but never do. it’s liberating.
of course, i haven’t solved my problem of continually acquiring things yet but i’m getting there. 😀
