Believe it or not, I have reached the next category: BOOKS.
Jeng jeng jeng... more scary than clothes!
I'm still trying to perfect my clothes, trying to get that click (about 70% with clicks yay!) but I have also moved on to books and it is much more difficult for me as I love my books more than my clothes! This is a fact!

The problem I had was most likely due to the hardcovers as I am a sucker for it. Hence saying nay to a hardcover is really difficult even if it doesn't sparks joy! Can you believe it? Also the books come in various sizes as some in mass paperbacks, some in trade paperbacks, etc. I should have taken note of the size when I was buying it then. So no matter how hard I tried to arrange it, the click was not easily found. I preferred arranging it by author which added to the complication. Sigh!
Non-fiction was easier for me as mostly sparks joy! LOL! Also, mostly are in similar sizes so it's easier to arrange it and getting that click! Furthermore, it's only 1/5 of my books and mostly consists of my handmade patterns i.e. sewing, cross-stitch and crochet so how not to spark joy? There are still some cookbooks left to settle and need to dig out more to see if anything hidden or left behind.
|Some of my non-fiction, which is just a fraction of my books. I totally forgot to take a pic when I started with fiction LOL!|
|Found loads of gems from my cookbooks yay!|

On another note, I do feel some changes in my environment like I'm happier, feeling more optimistic, feeling more thankful and blessed with what I have and even my garden is blooming! I also have more clarity of my friends and colleagues, who is true and who is fraud. I noticed even hubs seems to experience some changes although he hasn't KM much but I guess I have helped with the positive aura. Plus I also do KM a bit of his things lah! My anger management has still not pared down although it is much controlled now. Also the urge to shop has lessen! I have even found some gems which was hidden, thought I didn't have it hence now cancelled from my shopping list! Isn't it a blessing?!
An update of my sparking joy bookshelves:
|Children's, mixed and male authors|
Next will be papers which is another headache! It's all over the house so I wonder how I'll gather it all in 1 place?!!! Fingers crossed with the remaining of my books first!
