    Same! I wait till college-prep items go on clearance, so I have a mini closet. I even keep store hangers since they hook on each other & can easily make a days worth of clothes & accessories into an all-in-1 package!

    Literally everything you said about cleaning is so true. Sometimes my bedroom is really messy and I can't stand it, cleaning makes me feel really loved. I'm actually doing it for me, so I can live in a tidy and cute place for the next week.

    @9:47 "There is basically no limit to the amount of crap I can justify buying."

    My stock response to being told I am a horder or "Why did you buy that?" is

    "Collector and curator."

    But even those items are marked for culling but after selling or otherwise the other stuff boxed up ready to sell. How is that going? Work in progress 🙂

    Congrats on your new apartment! NYC is very expensive and I've been considering whether I want to stick with renting, or invest a large amount of capital into buying a home in NYC (I intend to stay in NYC for a long time, perhaps even retire) . As you've lived in NYC for so long I wonder how you feel about this! Most people will insist on buying instead of renting, but NYC is such a unique market it's hard to get an idea of what is the financially savvy route, especially with the inflation.

    I keep a list of things I want to buy and home projects to tackle. I put my change in a jar as well as abt. $5 a week. I then use it for those items and projects. I have bought a bathroom dresser with that money, put up shelving, fixed my closet, bought a "writing," club chair, and top down blinds. Also I do not use cc or debit cards except online. I find I wasn't concious of the money I was spending. I use cash only while out and about. It lets me see the money dwindling. and if I am spending too much I can adjust. Like if spending too much then I'll make sandwiches for lunch for the rest of the week if for some reason I have not cooked or will stay home more or something. I also roast a chicken and make some sort of casserole every sunday. At work for lunch I'll buy a salad and/or sides to go with it. These little things have helped a great deal.

    You might like the book An Everlasting Meal. It’s about batch cooking that snowballs over time. Basically you make something and continually add to it and it morphs into several things over time as you us leftovers from the previous night.

    Chelsea has the best personality and has that touch of bitchiness it is just what I like. She says it like it is basically and I agree with almost everything she says in her videos. Funny, likeable, and always useful! Now I need to figure out how the hell she cleans her house in one morning. Impossible for me.

    I agree with most of the suggestions in this video, but I don't really agree with the idea that dreading Monday morning is a choice. If you're in a job that you hate for whatever reason — perhaps you feel like you have to put on a persona to deal with your work, or perhaps your job puts huge demands on you and always leaves you feeling exhausted — you're going to dread Mondays, because you're having to switch from having freedom and autonomy, doing what you want with your time, to putting your head down and grinning and bearing it.

    I used to be a teacher in a challenging urban school. On Sunday nights, I'd usually have a bit of prep work to do ahead of the new week starting. But no matter how much prep I did, I would never be fully prepared for some element of the shit I'd have to deal with when I got into school on Monday morning. Unexpected staff absences. Pupils throwing tantrums and fighting. School equipment breaking down. Last minute schedule changes. So I'd always dread Monday, as the thought going through my head was, 'Here we go — another exhausting week that's going to leave me feeling completely depleted at the end of it.'

    Because I couldn't control a lot of what happened at my job, I couldn't really prepare for it. I imagine that folks who work in similarly strained public services also feel the same. No amount of batching cooking or outfit prepping is going to make you feel prepared for what you could have to deal with that week!

    I've changed jobs now, primarily to preserve my mental health. I work in an office that is relatively relaxed with coworkers who I get along with. Big improvement! In my life now, I'd say that these suggestion are relevant.

    when i can reliably cook things that aren't disgusting, i will batch cook! I eat a lot of raw meals, ie one carrot, one celery, a handful of nuts, an apple, an orange, a lump of cheese, two pieces of toast, etc etc (a toaster isn't a cooker!)

    I'm a chef, and even I batch cook. 😀 Otherwise I would be eating take-out the whole week, because if I cooked 8+ hours a day, my brain says no to more cooking, I usually cook something nice for at least 4 days of the week and then I'm excited to get home and eat somethin really nice and home made.

    The Monday mindset is such a valid point. I'm an elementary teacher and my morning duty is to stand and monitor one of the main hallways of the school (for safety, behavior, reorient lost substitutes, etc). Every Monday, I wave at each student who walks by and I say "Happy Monday!" in the same way that I used to say "Happy Friday!" A few were confused by the switch at the beginning of the year, but it's January and I now get so many "Happy Monday!"s in reply. It has made a huge difference in my and the students' disposition for those 15-20 minutes! Before I began this practice, it saddened me to see so many 6-10 year-olds overtly despondent in the morning. When I asked why they were so sad, the response was typically "Because it's Monday…" If these are their feelings at 7, what could be expected at 40? Some students ask me why I'm so happy on a Monday and I exclaim "Because I get to see you!" Moods instantly improved: Mindset Matters.

    I love these types of videos, but I do wish I could find advise on productivity and sticking to rituals on a 24/48 life. I'm a paramedic working for a fire department. I don't live a 9-5, M-F life. I also have a PRN job at an Emergency room. Meal planning and bringing food to work has been difficult. I end up wasting food.

I have a Bedroom floor for the 1st time in My Life and I have found that scheduling time aka creating rituals is the Best coping mechanism I've ever had for my ADHD& the associated anxiety I experience. Helping me learn German too.
