Uncluttering My Life, One Box at a Time

Spacebee’s movin’ in at the end of July, and my apartment was full.  Well, not full as in things-spilling-out-of-closets-full.  More like we-can’t-fit-another-human’s-stuff-in-here-full.  So, I hit the ol’ internet and discovered a never ending cornucopia of information on productivity and uncluttering.  Now, my friends, I am on A Roll.

Goodwill has been a benefactor of my throwaway spree, as well as the Madison chapter of Freecycle.  I’ve given away a lot, and I’ve thrown away even more.  And it genuinely has helped create a better, more open space to live.  A lot of the stuff that I moved from Wisconsin to California and back has ended up thrown away once I really ask myself hard questions on why I’m keeping it around.

Over the next few weeks we’ll be moving spacebee in slowly but surely, and the only furniture we really have to buy at this point is one or two dressers for the bedroom (I don’t own one currently).  We’re planning on moving a china cabinet in, and that’s pretty much it.  I’m looking forward to an uncluttered space.  I’ll take some pictures once I clear a lot of it out.

  1. hey hey! man, i got a bacterial infection! so awful. monday afternoon i was like, hmmm that’s strange, i have a slightly sore throat… so i take some wellness formula (6) and go to bed. when i wake up (tuesday morning) i am sweating and have a fever. so i’m like, i gotta get to the old fishin hole and ktk should clean that place up. no not really, really, i was like, duh, i had that sore throat and now i have the flu because those %^#$@%^ airplaines are dank dirty flying dung holes. and i was on one for 10 hours. so i have the flu. great. seriously, if some stupid idiot marketing person working for some stupid nearly bankrupt airline would sell they’re stupid nearly bankrupt airline as “clean” i would pay more money to fly them and thus solve their financial woes. just clean your $#%@^$#%@ airplanes. for real. just spray some windex or something for gods sake, i’m dying. ok so tick tock tick tock, now it’s wednesday still sick and fever goes up and down up and down and i still have this terrible sore throat. so finally i saw a dr and it is not some flu it is bacterial infection on my throat that caused the fever so now i’m on penicillin. for a week. i feel lousy but getting better anyway. the end. i’m still coming to wisco i think. the end. but i probably won’t win the sausage race anymore. NOT because i can’t just because of my unfortunate illness that could not be prevented due to unhealthy contaminated gross ass airplanes. the end. i might win anyway. the end

  2. hmmm…what is happening on an old blog post – Some More Pictures? Is this some spam porn and drug shit? Or, is there a madd scientist creaping? I saw the evidence on recent comments.

  3. every single poker website is running at an unusable crawl right now. begun the net neutrality wars have. loaded be my guns.

  4. cardplayer down, tilt down, ultimate bet down, pokerroom down, hollywoodpoker down, betonbet down… party poker still worked.

    politicians are using our network against us to leverage their own personal agendas.

    this is not what america is supposed to be. the terrorists are already here, and they are wearing suits in washington d.c. while they spend their comcast/charter communications/at&t/harrah’s gaming money. i hope they all pay for kisses from cal and die from them.

    a dirty politician doesn’t just stop being a dirty politician. they are cancer on society. they need to be killed or deported… every second they reside on american soil our way of life is comprimised.

    i did not post the porn spam, but i do support the nude arts.

    fuck everything.

  5. part of the unlawful internet gaming act that bill frist DICTATED on the american people states that enforcement policy would be made within 270 days. it has been 272 days at the justice department stated the obvious that it is unenforcible.

    our system is completely corrupt and i’m sickened by people that pretend it isn’t or don’t care. these people are pure evil.

  6. at the federal level, any schmuck can write a law, attach it to anything at the end of session after everyone leaves, and have it pass on unanimous voice vote (a different way to say no one was there to object) and we all must obey or we are locked up.

    that is not democracy. that is broken facism. bill frist needs to be punished for what he did. then he needs to be punished again and again until he can no longer be punished.

  7. fascism i mean… even though bill frists face is broke as fuck too. bill frists facism is ugly as fuck. dude is in hiding. what a pussy. you know what you did bill. i know what you did. you will pay.

  8. private sector technology driven monitoring of the american people will lead to near term war on US soil.

  9. Cal, be sure to cough all over the airplane when you’re coming to wisco. Share the bacterial love.

  10. my original post re: zach and stacy’s bedroom furniture got lost in cyberspace, dammit. my vote, once again, is to have one large bureau. same drawer space as two pieces of furniture but no awkward gap in between two pieces, no needing to match two pieces for complimentary styles, and generally less physical space taken up in the room.

  11. Though it was laughed at, my house in Lake Chuck took the cake. You could put it in a Simple Living Magazine and everything. Pre-woman, my Milwaukee Apt was pretty sweet too.

  12. When I first saw the headline “Lady Bird Johnson Dead” I thought it said “Larry Bird”, and I was all like, shit, dude looked pretty spry to me, but then I saw it was Lady and it made more sense.
