Yes, I heard about Marie Kondo. I even tried once to watch one of her shows, but I couldn't go past the first 10 minutes. I can't stand reality TV setups, it's beyond me. So I have a very vague idea about what her shows and occupations are about. I understand that she's brilliant at organizing things, and at helping people to being organized. I'm sure that she could help tidying up the basement where I store my things. Maybe she would insist that I should get rid of my book boxes. I must have forty-five of them, probably more than 80% of what I store there. I tried to sort some once, last time we moved. I ditched several dozens indeed, but it took me hours to go through just a few boxes. Too time-consuming, I'll wait for the moment we get a real place with bookshelves. Then another area she may help me with is digital cleaning. After having tried many note taking apps, eventually I've been using Stickies ("Post-it"-like notes) on my Mac as the main repository for my notes & to-dos. Even though I try to clean them from time to time, I'm mildly efficient at best at that. I just counted more than 160 notes. So I'm going to do something actually useful, as opposed to this hollow post. I'm going to locate and delete five obsolete stickies. Maybe I should start a new streak: #dailyNoteDeleteStreak, and get busy for semester!

    @philh <3 I knoooow...
    I think you cannot watch the show, because there is a part of you which knows, it could be useful, yet make you feel even worse about NOT doing anything with the 45 boxes of books (and... many many boxes of almost totally unidentified objects actually :D)
    and... but... hihihi... you had an (humongous) apartment with shelves for like 5/6 years and... the 30 "original" boxes were taken out of it pretty untouched... only that they were followed by 15 more... haha!
    Well, you know best how vast my "clutter basements" are... not much right for criticising other I get I am afraid... yeaaaaaah...

    @philh This is for those of us who create more than we delete; buy more than we give away and in other ways need a structured approach to balance.

      @brianball So indeed that would be useful with my digital secretion :)
      I did delete 5 post-it the other day, it felt good!
