I’ve been slowly packing the house up since December but I’m really in full tilt now! The kitchen only contains the bare minimum to keep us in food until Friday, everything else has been mercilessly boxed up. My precious makeup collection has been tidied into boxes and I’m working out of a little bag with the essentials now. It’s very thrilling.

In the meantime I’m also getting nervous about things. Shooting off emails to my conveyancer and personal banker left and right. I’m sure they’re sick of me already, but i have so many last minute things i want to check. A large and very dull part of today was also devoted to changing our address with the relevant companies, organizing for last bills to be send for utilities and setting up utilities for the new place. Hopefully we won’t be moving again after this for a very very long time, cos I’ve moved every year since moving to Melbourne and I’m thoroughly tired of it.

Another thing has been playing on my mind. My parents and brother are going to be visiting from interstate over the easter break and they didn’t see the house before i bought it. The only person we brought along to approve it prior to purchasing was my Mother in law. I’m extremely anxious that they’re not going to approve. They liked the domain profile, but everything is meant to look good in the ad right?

It’s very therapeutic. I’ve been slowly filtering through the house these past few days sorting things into 4 groups.

1. Keep
2. Rubbish
3. To donate
4. To garage sale or sell on vogue forums/ebay. (anything that doesn’t sell off by moving time gets donated)

3 great big bags of stuff have just gone off to a collection bin! I have a load of cds and books to take to the second hand store to sell in a few weeks. And so many clothes to get rid of. I’ve even found enough MAC empties to Back2Mac for a new lipstick when the mood strikes me (and it may soon considering i am on a month shopping ban)

Textbooks i am not sure what to do with… They were so expensive but I’ve tried to haul them off to second hand book stores and now that they have been superseded by new editions they will not take them. If anyone wants any medical or dental textbooks let me know? I’m willing to give them up for almost nothing, it just seems a shame to throw them.

Decluttering feels very freeing at any rate. I feel so much better that I’m not hoarding all this stuff i do not use or really want. No point in just having them in boxes all around the house. There’s still lots to go.
