4 Practical Ways of Getting Rid of Personal ‘Rubbish’ at Home
This is to share on how I am able to get rid of those bulky things I have had at home as a result of my recent retirement from 25 years working in the government.
I want to get rid some of those books which have been published more than 10 years and teaching manuals and textbooks which I have used when I was teaching before as a classroom teacher in my small library at home. They are classified as periodicals and old newspapers and magazines; pocket books, novels, and do-it manuals.
I pack those books for I want to donate them to our city library. I weigh those old magazines, newspapers and periodicals for I want to sell them to the buy-and-sell business venture and I want the money to repaint my mini library wall. Some of the pocket books and novels are intended to ge given to my close relatives especially those who love reading them and who are still studying in college. I know they would be so grateful receiving them from their uncle.
Stored Computer Files
Since I have just retired from my recent school, I have a lot of computer files to the school desktop computer and also to the laptop issued by the city government in which I have returned upon retiring from the service as a school head. I have a personal file created at the school desktop. Thus I need to copy or delete them from said computer. Since those files contain momentous images of which I am involved like the graduation exercises which I am the speaker, PTA conferences, Local Government Unit meetings, teachers consultative meeting, scouting and other school related activities in which I am personally conducting and involved.
In the laptop, those similar pictures are also stored. I need to remove them too before I turn over the laptop to the city government property custodian. If I would to estimate those files, they are around 16 gigabytes. They are great files. I buy several pieces of DVD to recopy those files. The DVD come short of space to accommodate those bulky files. I am compelled to use Google Drive. Aside from my personal email ad, I create two or more ads and they are all recopied.
Getting Out of the Mess
What should I do all those things which I couldn’t use them anymore? I need to get rid of them for sure. In doing so, 4 simple practical things come up to do to make myself free from those “rubbish” I have had after those 25 faithful years of working with the government.
