Time to declutter

I have years worth of accumulated junk in my room. Airline tickets, receipts and credit card bills dating back to 2003, unused clothes, toys and many other things that should have been tossed ages ago. I always plan to clean my room but never really get the chance to do an intensive one. I think its mainly because I find it hard to let go of things that I think are important to me. Too many memories attached and almost everything has a sentimental value! This year though I am really trying hard to simplify my life. No more buying of new toys and things that will just gather dust in my room. I will also be diligent in sorting my paper collection (bills, tickets, receipts etc.). In fact, I bought a paper shredder and have almost completed discarding all of it. Yay! I think I spent almost half a day shredding stuff. Haha! I'll be sending my huge bag of paper confetti to the waste market in a couple of weeks for recycling :)

I collected the things that I wanted to discard and joined two of my friends in a garage sale this afternoon. Like me, they are also trying to declutter their homes. Aside from clothes, we had a really strange collection of knick knacks! Who wants this alien salt shaker?Decorative dolls in international costumes... not mine but my mom's (?!?) The Korean version was the only one in this batch that was sold! Haha :)  Cute bots!At the end of the day I made almost p2,000. Not bad considering most of my items were in the p5-20 range :)Oh, I saw a couple of cute cats too! Me-ow!


  1. my house also got lots of stuff i deem as "junks".. but if i wanna sell them or throw them away.. sure my parents dont let.. =P

  2. @kenwooi there are still so many unsorted things in my home! hopefully, i'll get to discard more :)

  3. What a good idea to de-clutter!
    I might do a garage sale, soon. Curious books, gadgets and toys to sell.

  4. I think I need to de-clutter soon too!

  5. oooh, now i want a paper shredder, too!

    i joined two bazaars last year to sell my stuff. it's a great way to get rid of stuff and earn a little extra cash. :)

  6. I need to de-clutter, too. I have too many "junks" already. You got cute stuff, mahirap i-let go. =)
