Missing My Posts? I’ve Moved!

Wings of Flight is my spiritual hub; my path to Druidry and beyond – including my de-cluttering and simplifying aspects. Come on over and leave a comment to say you’ve made the switch; don’t forget to update your…

Budgeting

Everyone’s situation is different. However, I think it’s safe to say that debt and financial struggle is a pretty common phenomenon these days. I was reading a post over at Becoming Minimalist about getting out of debt and was reminded of my own situation. I’ve written about this before and about the situation of being an…

The Year of Accomplishment

Affirming Two’Ten Everywhere I look, I’m seeing fabulous affirmations for this year. In the turn of a new decade; of leaving a year which was portrayed almost as ‘rock-bottom’; I can see the relief emanating from strangers in the street. The workbooks, to-do lists, books and blogs on resolutions are out; and they’re everywhere. Living…

Setting Goals in Motion

It’s the first week of January. And we all know that means: Some people make resolutions, others think “it’s just a new calendar” and others choose a theme to focus on. For anyone creating habits or aiming for goals, there is advice around this time of year for doing it efficiently, effectively and fast. However,…

Focus Habit

The Focus of Habits Firstly, happy new year to all and a good luck for all those resolutions you’ve made. As a part of my own self-improvement resolution, I’m forming new habits and I thought I could share what I’ve discovered with you. My word of the Year for 2010 is Focus. As 2009 drew…

Clothing Purge: Part ii

My 87 items The Final Count Today I went through my two drawers, two wardrobe shelves, three wardrobe drawers and the rail. I discovered that out I have around one-hundred-and-twenty tops (not including yesterday’s 26 favourites). This includes ponchos/baggy t-shirts/’covers’, strap tops and work/interview/going out tops. Well, not anymore I don’t. Forty-nine of those are…

Clothing Purge: Part i

Clothes Clutter: When it comes to clutter, I see a multitude of things around my room that don’t have homes. That’s my main issue; no homes for objects. When it comes to things I know I could easily cut down/give away, my list is basically clothes. I could probably give away a lot of my…

Organising: Part 3

Today I worked on the top 4 shelves of my bookcase, (inspired by this article) and had a little 5 minute de-clutter of my desk (part of the second half) and a couple minutes on my dresser. Scarily, I’ve purged my bookcase of 51 books. Some have been set aside for specific friends at university and…

Organising: Part 2

(Part 1 of my de-cluttering action plan can be found here) Last night, I looked up from the frugal & simple living websites to this sight outside. I get lovely sunset pictures from my bedroom window. I had a glass of wine while debating my menu ideas for University. I move back to Brighton in…
