I Need HELP! Packing Suggestions Wanted..

Dear Readers...
If you're one of my friends on Facebook, you'd know by now that I have managed to get transferred back to Sabah. I'm very, very happy that I have finally got what I've wished for although now I'm in a bit of a pickle.

I don't know how on Earth am I going to pack all my stuff. I've accumulated so many clothes, accessories, shoes, lotions and potions during the 10 months I've been here. OMG! No wonder tidak digalakkan membeli belah sakan (in other words, BOROS), rupanya bukan saja mem'bankrap'kan tapi juga memyusahkan bila mau pindah.. Good thing I didn't buy any furniture except for my multi-purpose rack and my Worn-Thin-At-The-Butt matress.

It's the little things that are driving me crazy. Sudahlah fragile, mau bawa pun susah, kasi tinggal sayang pula. On top of all the things that I have here, I also have stuff left at my sister's house and at the office. One of my trusty luggage (the pink one) pula zip sudah patah dan tidak boleh diselamatkan so I only have one luggage left (Thank God it's the expandable one!)... Kalau overweight sy punya barang2 ni matai la mau membayar.. Hm.. Have to ask my superiors if they still tanggung the cost if that happens...

I was thinking of giving my lotions (Notice that it's plural?), hair mask, body scrub, and some of my makeup away to friends, kalau tidak pun put at my sister's house in Damansara but my housemate said, "Bawa jak, sayang bah tu.." I could give it away but quite sayang cz some of them are unopened and some only used a little bit. Mau jual, belum tentu diorang mau beli. Kalo simpan at my sister's place, nobody will be using it which is a waste.. Haiya..


My makeup. Have more at the office and in my handbag. I know, I know.. It's an incurable affliction of mine. Haha..

Kemarin sy cuba la kunu ni prioritize my makeup mana satu mau bagi kawan, mana yang mau kasi tinggal dan mana yang mau bawa. My MAC, Bobbi Brown and Benefit are of course coming with me without a doubt. I thought that I wouldn't have any probs in making my decision since I don't really use some of my makeup items often. Sekali sy try guna makeup2 yang jarang diguna tu, I discovered so many ways of using it and making it better. Needles to say I ended up not being able to part with any of it. Adoi...


My magazines..


 
My books..

I will have to leave my Female, Cleo and Seventeen (Yes, I still read Seventeen magazine eventhough I'm 24 years old, so there!) magazines at the office. I adore them and I can't bear to part with them but I know without a doubt that I can't bring them with me. It's just too heavy. The books and novels that I've bought would have to go to my sister's place. Sorry kak Alia for taking up your space. Will belanja you makan at Waroeng Penyet next weekend. Hehehe...

Then there are my shoes and acessories to think about... Oh, tidak.... They're my babies and I love them but where to pack them into? Terpaksa lah sy membodek budak IT nanti minta kotak. Atau minta dari tu Bangla yang ada kedai runcit di bawah perumahan sy (Who by the way has an iPhone... I'm just saying..).


Macam satu rumah punya kasut tapi suma sy punya. Ada 3 pasang lagi tidak masuk dalam ni gambar (Shame-faced... Huhu...)


Normally I keep the necklaces, earrings and bracelets separate but for the sake of packing I had to dump 'em all in the same box... And it's full... Huston, we have a problem...

Sy betul2 taubat oh dari beli barang lagi... Well, at least for the time being.. Hahahaha... So dear readers if you are have any suggestions in how I should pack or how to lighten my load of stuff (A mantra to get rid of emotional attachment to things perhaps?), feel free to leave a comment below. Toodles...

haha! you can use the spring cleaning trick: set aside things (makeup,beauty products, acc, clothes) you'd use EVERYDAY. note the capitals. and things you need for special occasions - dinner, parties, beach etc. and leave the things you havent use for 3 years! but in your case, ONE year! really, you wont even notice its gone.
