Hello dear people, I scrolled through my earlier blogposts and I saw one called: Favourite Things I Did In May!, so I thought: 2 years later, let’s do the same. So, hereby, my favourite things I did last month :).  Continue reading “Favourite things I did in May 2017!”

Do more of what makes you happy.

What really inspired me of that thing called minimalism is to get rid of your stuff to make room for what makes you happy. And I do believe that getting rid of junk is going to resonate in more aspects of my life. Getting rid of negative things, energy vampires etc and to make room of what makes me happy.  Continue reading “Do more of what makes you happy.”

Second-hand shop

Hello dear readers,

Today I went to a second-hand shop and together with my parents we donated 5 boxes of stuff! Mostly books: there was a full box from me, lots of children books, but also English & Dutch books, and my parents also gave away a lot of books. In the boxes were also DVDS/CDs/PC games we never watch/listen to/play anymore. And it is all such a relief!

I divided my last box with books into two boxes, well, I had to because it just didn’t fit in one box. And these are my prettiest English & Dutch books. These I will bring to a second-hand bookstore and hopefully they want to buy them from me.

After the summer I’m going to England and during the summer I’m going on holiday with a friend (we want to visit among others Budapest & Paris) and I can use a little money for that!

Now I’m decluttering so much I don’t feel the need to buy stuff anymore. I always wanted to buy books. More more more more books. But now I have gotten rid of so many already, I feel so much better and lighter! Everyday I saw all those books and it made me feel guilty & a slow reader. Now I look at my shelves and see mostly the books I love or the books I still really want to read. Some books I want to get rid of too, but I don’t because they may come in handy for my uni. So those books I am allowed to keep and after uni I will donate or sell them.

My bookshelves look soooo much calmer and lovelier, I’m really happy with it. Next week I will go to the second-hand bookshop and then my room is without boxes and with a lot less books!

How do you feel about decluttering?
