Hello there,

first of all, I have to apologize for not keeping my promises in writing more often.

The cold I was referring to, the one with no voice, it was actually way more than that and believe it or not, I just recently recovered from it. A side effect, i just had started a new job and lost if a few weeks later, I guess, being sick in your probation period doesn’t look to good with your new employer…

Anyways, one door closes another one opens…

During those weeks of being ordered to do NOTHING, I had a lot of free time on my hands to move forward getting rid of more stuff.

This time my VHS collection, tapes, scarfs and other accessories and some DVD´s had to bite the dust: Want proof, here you go:

                      

                   

TATAAAAA:

So here are the results of the past weeks:

VHS       35

DVD        6

Tapes    25

Scarfs    36

Total:   102

Old number: 2857 minus 102, that brings us down to a new number:        2. 7 5 5  

Slowly but steady people, slowly but steady.

I leave you with a quote of my favourite Tv series of all times FIREFLY:             “I’ll be in my bunk”  🙂

Till next time

PS. Of course my favourite DVD-Box-Sets of TV Series survived the mayhem !

Hello everyone,

first of all, apologies, its been a while, I KNOW… mea culpa.

A nasty cold finally caught up with me, I thought I had made it trough the season, but no, finally the superfluous critter got me. Tiny side effect, no voice at all. Since three days, not one word out of my mouth, which is kinda hilarious knowing my ever so distinct need to babble, äh, communicate.

For example, yesterday my soccer team (Eintracht Frankfurt) won 6:1 (!!!), which is kind of a BIG deal and I couldn’t even scream. Hello ??? Even more stupid, I couldn’t call my friends to discuss our glorious victory in full lengths. NO, – this whole “no voice thing” is a big pile of crap.

So I decided to use my unwanted speechlessness to write my next post; it’s about a girls best friend, diamonds ? –  no,  SHOES !

Some of you asked me already, how the heck do you wanna get rid of your beloved shoes Miss B ? You recognize the subject and can identify it by name, well done. For years and years, I collected shoes. Piles of them, many, plenty, a lot, mucho, hundreds, loads, tons, all shapes, colours, types. At one point I think I owned around 400 pairs of shoes. Did I mention that my second name was Imelda Marcos, without the famous shoe-closet of course…

I downsized my shoes to around 200 pairs when I moved to Berlin and now its time to say good-bye once more, and oh wonder, again, no tears, seriously, no tears.

You want proof ? Here we go:

The big blue plastic bag in pic 3 holds the ones that had to go, wanna guess how many got the BOOT?

150 (!), that means yours truly owns as of today only 50  (!) pairs of shoes, how about that ?

I have to say, I am pretty proud of myself, I never imagined me ending up with “only” 50 pairs of shoes …

Guess I left some of you speechless now, haha, Raffaela knows what I am talking about.

Project my1000things is moving on, looking forward to the new number end of february.

I want to leave you with a band I truly admire, The BLACK REBEL MOTORCYCLE CLUB – Restless Sinner:

Take good care and mind the chill, it’s here to stay 😉

Aloha,

how are you all ?

Since some of you told me, they have started their own unclutter session, I would love to hear about your progress, the little successes but also about the little set backs.

Today I want to give you Ilona Royce. It’s a woman, that is 90 years old and so very inspiring. My friend Sneschi, posted that video on my FB page and I thought, this is perfect for the blog.

This woman is so full of life and ideas, its impressive. One thing she said stuck with me:

“You know, these days advertising has taken over. And I see people on the streets, they want all those new things. And they must have it, but if you don’t have it, your are not going to die. It’s a wonderful thing, not to need to have something”.

I think this beautiful old lady simply nailed it.

Here is the full video:

Enjoy and you know the drill, feedback is very welcome.

Cheers

Beate

PS: In the next days, I show you more progress in sizing down, selling stuff and turn them into presents, behold people 😉
