What I Did This Weekend + My Dumpster Haul! + Konmari Styled Linen Closet (January 26-28, 2019)

Hey, everybody! It’s been so looooooong since I have done a Weekend Update/What I have been up to post, so I am going to be getting back into it today! Come and see what I did this weekend!

Saturday

On Saturday, LOCMom and I went to visit LOCAuntS! She was doing pretty good and I even gave her a Kirkland brand applesauce pouch to try which she seemed to like! I’m just hoping she finished all of it eventually because I don’t think she was hungry enough to finish the entire pouch, haha. ^ _^; I also told her I would bring her some Macha green tea next time I came over to see her! The cool thing about Macha green tea is that it actually turns your tea water green in your cup instead of that ugly yellow color that most American green tea brands do to one’s tea water. x _o Plus, it tastes better! ;D

After visiting LOCAuntS, I went thrfting and LOCMom bought me a children’s piano (with IOU money, of course ^ _^; )! I’ve been craving to pluck at piano keys for a while now and maybe even learn how to play the piano someday, but after looking up on the internet of how learning the piano is reeeeeally, difficult, I’m just going to put that dream in a drawer for now, haha… O _X;;;

Also, I have an update on LOCFishy Leon. A few days ago, I put Leon in a smaller tank and after a few days, I realized it was killing him. :C So I put him back in his regular 2 gallon tank and he is happier again. At least I am hoping so. The reason why I put him a smaller tank (1 gallon bowl) was because I though with having less water in the tank, he would not be as cold in it. Well… After reading on the internet, 1 gallon tanks really suck for any fish and they are NOT recommended at all. I learned that the hard way. :’C Hoping Leon will be okay now, but since he is nearing 3 years of age, he may pass away in the near future. Not looking forward to it. 😥

I also had a wonderful dinner on Saturday! Macha green tea and two clementines, or two Cuties! It was delish, haha. * o*

dinner
YUMMY! * O*

After dinner, I hung up my laundry I did a few days ago and that is always a chore, haha. @ _@;;;

And on Sunday, I believe I went to Costco and that is always fun. 🙂 I also got to catch up with many an LOC family member on Sunday and it was great talking to everyone again! ^ _^

Dumpster Hauls!

I still can’t believe what people throw out. It’s crazy! 😡 The two craziest items I have found most recently in our apartment complex’s dumpsters or by them was an expensive racing bike (donated it to Goodwill) and most MOST recently, somebody’s FREAKIN’ PASSPORT. I mean, guys… You don’t put your expired passport into a dumpster, more less ON TOP of said dumpster full of trash with your information clear as day on it, and call it good! I’m so happy I spotted it when I did because it was a child’s passport. Bad parenting 101, anybody? – _____-

So I did what any good citizen/person (or parent) would do with an expired passport, or a parent’s child’s passport. I got one of my king-sized Sharpies that I use to block out addresses on my Amazon packages I get and scribbled out all of this young person’s personal information in their passport including the stamps they received when going to other countries. I then gave the passport to our apartment’s office which the staff members there said they would put it in their confidential paper file box to be destroyed appropriately.

There… BAD PARENTING FLAW FIXED. 😡 Uggghh… So yeah, that is my fun dumpster story of the week, haha. 😛

Now to my hauls!

Check em’ all out! 😀

haul 1
Random stuff found in a dumpster. Nothing wrong with any of it… > _> Lunchbox was unzipped so the inside of it could be featured. ^ _^
haul 2
Clothing steamer! Tried it and it works like a dream!
label
Working label maker! All it needed was new batteries! 😀
haul 3
Outdoor sprays/cleaning/house supplies. Btw, that toilet brush was never use/still had its tag on it. 😉
haul 4
Close-up of my new headlamp! All it needed was new batteries and it worked great!

Yup, I scored! ^ o^ I’m keeping half of the electronics I found though and I will be donating the label maker to my new place where I will be volunteering at soon! I kept a few of the cleaning/house supplies that I found and put the rest I did not want outside of the dumpster in a box so other people could take them if they wanted them. 🙂 I kept the Clorox cleaning wipes and the trash bags though! Those things will definitely will come in handy around the house! ^ _^ The new headlamp I found will work great in emergency situations as well! 😀

Konmari Styled Linen Closet!

So, I’m not sure if I mentioned this yet, but in the past I have wanted to be a Professional Organizer. You know, like Marie Kondo but without the Shintoism in her decluttering methods. 🙂 But they didn’t really work out due to my life situation, so I had to give up that dream up and just declutter stuff by myself in my own living spaces.

And when I declutter stuff, I do a DAMN good job if I do say so myself! 😉 Marie Kondo also helped me make my life easier with her folding techniques she uses on clothing and other cloth-like items! Thank you, Marie! ^ u^ Because of her folding techniques, I am able to give myself more space inside of my drawers and cabinets so more things can get put into them maybe in the near future!

Anyway, without further ado, check out the decluttered linen closet! 8D

decluttered

I do not joke when I say I wanted to be a Professional Organizer in the past, haha. 😉 Of course, this entire linen closet is not completely KonMari’d concerning the contents in it. Sometimes I have to use my own folding methods to get things to fit smaller into the closet with some KonMari-ish inspired folding techniques. B) Unfortunately, I couldn’t get the whole picture of linen closet in one shot because it is so long. 😥 But hey, I hope everyone likes seeing my hard work anyway! ^ o^

So yup, that is basically everything I have been up to. ^ _^ Hoping everyone has a wonderful week!

What have you been up to?
