De-clutter diary (3)

Last year i started de-cluttering my flat. Donated clothes, sold board games for charity, recycled old electronics and threw away other things.

Yet, i still i live in a flat with clutter. Things which i rarely use or i’m not even aware they are even there. Hidden in cupboards and boxes. I find it embarrassing that i live in a two bedroom flat, with a storeroom and still find myself with not enough space. Last year i also put a hold on most of my purchases while i was doing this de-clutterring but i’m still shocked by how much clutter i’ve collected over the years. I say clutter because it is cups, mugs, clothes, electronics i bought but never, never use now. So in every sense of the word, these things are clutter to me.

This past month, i’ve raised the level of this clearing out. I gave away almost all of my DVD collection ( I rarely re-watch anything and the ones i do re-watch i’ve kept plus there is no dvd player connected to the TV anyway at the moment). I also donated more clothes, mugs, bowls (10 bowls i got from Alfamega using vouchers, who needs 10 bowls excluding the 5 i’ve kept….), linen, towels, table cloths, napkins, candle holders and got rid of old academic books. Now i’m almost done with the kitchen and moving to the bedroom.

All these are out and I’m still not done yet.

I find it simply embarrassing and near shameful.

Board games for sale

I am selling a few board games which never find table time either because someone else close to me owns a copy making mine basically a duplicate or because i simply don’t have the time to play them.

The proceeds i receive for these games will be donated to a charity by January and i will post about it on the blog.

The games (all in english) being sold are:

1. Power Grid (EUR25) – Very good condition, played 2-3 times.

2. Dominion (EUR25) – box is damaged, cards in excellent condition.

3. Here I Stand (EUR40) – Like new, never been played. Cards are sleeved.

4. Forbidden Island (EUR10) – Like new.

5. Castle Ravenloft (EUR40) – Very good condition. Cards are sleeved.

6. Carcassone: Inns & Cathedrals (EUR5) – Very good condition (expansion – still need the base game)

7. Carcassone: Traders & Builders (EUR5) – Very good condition (expansion – still need the base game)

I am only looking for buyers living in Cyprus, preferably Nicosia, and the prices (which are non-negotiable) don’t include any shipping costs.
