Down the TBR Hole // To Read Eventually – Part 2/3

DTTBRH - E

Get Ready to Purge!

I’ve hit my final wind!

I’m not going to lie, I was starting to really hate these posts because I’ve been doing them forever!

I always love the idea and the end result of clearing shit out, whether it be my bedroom, the daunting bathroom cupboard, the fridge or pantry, or my Goodreads TBR.

I hate the actual doing it part.

Though once I start I tend to be on a roll and then decide to start cleaning out about 4 things at once, causing me to run out of steam half way through all four tasks!

And while writing these Down The TBR Posts, I’ve also been clearing out more than just my Goodreads TBR.

My mum and I have been clearing out the entire house and packing because we’re moving!
By the time this posts we will have well and truly moved house! I’m writing these waaaaaaaaaaay in advance while I’m on hiatus!

Oh boy this was a long time ago! We moved in OCTOBER of 2018!

Through this process I’ve learned many things:

  • I got the habit of holding on to stupid shit from my mother.
  • I got my ability to start multiple tasks and run out of steam halfway through them all from her as well.
  • It’s very easy to get rid of meaningless material shit after having gotten rid of the bigger shit like family members!

We really should start making spring cleaning a habit every year!
It was spring in Australia when I started writing this! It’s now fucking winter. it’s nearly been a whole year! 

I’M GETTING RID OF ALL OF THE SHIT!

Anyway back to what this post is about!

I’m on my last shelf, second to last post for this shelf and third to last post of this series!

Guys I’m so excited! I’m ready for my skin to be clear and my shelves to be purged!
