For the new year, I wanted to get rid of a lot of books, objects, clothes I had no interest in anymore. For the longest time, I kept everything – and I mean everything – tucked away in various little corners of my room to the point where it was perma-chaotic just to look for something. I had piles of receipts from previous purchases, books and class notes from grade 9, and clothes and books I simply didn't wear or didn't read (or never wore, never read). I used to want to keep everything just in case or "just 'cuz" but I finally grew tired of this growing clutter.
Today, I finished ripping apart a bag full of old receipts, made room on my trestled desk , found posters and old paintings I've been wanting to frame for a good while and most importantly, I got rid of a lot of shit (all in big garbage bags ready for consignment stores, Fair's Fair, and Value Village).
I have never felt so clutter-free in my entire life so I felt the urge to take a bunch of photos in a Design Sponge kind of way.
And yet, you shall see that my room still looks filled with stuff '... Do enjoy!
