More E-Mail Decluttering

1 Comment

It was too hot up here in the attic HQ to do any work, and I’m going to need stronger cardboard to redo the mini-drawer organizers anyway. (I may have to design them before putting them in, which should be a good project. The set in there now is the result of being designed as I went rather than really planning anything out.) So this week I went through my e-mails.

My e-mail box gets cluttered up a lot. Not counting the year I was away from my computer most of the time due to being in the hospital the various projects I work on doesn’t always leave me time to really go through them. I do have some tips for how to make it easier and I even manage to take some of my own advice on this. Sadly, not enough or this wouldn’t be a recurring topic on this site, now would it? 😉

Re-Cleaning The Mini-Junk Drawer

Leave a comment

It’s time to come back to this set of drawers. The bottom drawer is used as a sort of junk drawer, which is mostly extra stuff in the studio. It’s become more and more stuffed, as junk drawers tend to do. It’s kind of in the name. This is where we put things when we don’t have time or location to put them properly, or stuff we come back to often enough to warrant it. This one looked like this:

When you have trouble closing the thing it’s time to do something with it. So that was this week’s project.

Quick Report: Listing Comics For Sale

Leave a comment

I’m not going to get rid of the comics unless I can sell them off. So this week I started listing comics on the Clutter For Sale section’s comic page. I actually had a few up there I didn’t realize I had already priced. I was going with the “new comic every day” plan but this week had numerous stop gaps and while I tried I fell a bit short. So yesterday I popped a whole bunch on there. Apparently I also need to add to the books for sale section and I though I had gotten them all. I must have lost some when I reorganized the section so I’ll have to fix that.

I’m actually low on long-term projects. The comics I do almost every day as far as going over them. The books I only get to read a chapter a week. The Transformers reviews may bring bonus traffic to the site (now that one I have completed of the ones I’ve gone over) but that’s not the mission of the site and it’s not like I couldn’t organize better. Plus I’d like to sell some of the ones already on the toy page before building that pile any further. And I just noticed one figure I didn’t list like a dummy so I need to fix that.

Now I have to see what the new computer can run software wise and what I actually need. That’ll be “fun”. The real clutter is my schedule. This is what I need to work on the most as far as getting my life back on track but that’s actually harder than you think. I’m also taking on another video project that requires specific artwork. Timing is probably my biggest barrier for anything. That and figuring out how to get rid of stuff I can’t just throw away. The work goes on. Advice is welcome.
