Up next: my closet. Ugh.
I’ve actually made some really good progress this summer. I’ve had a break from the project for about 3 weeks. My classes, conference and travel were probably a good diversion. Before the respite I did the “den” and guest bedroom, part of the living room and part of my bedroom. I have lots of bookshelves that have been receptacles for stuff I didn’t want to deal with.
The guest bedroom was a pretty big deal. I’m a Mary Kay consultant [very part-time] and I’ve got supplies and products that have accumulated over 11 years. The company has revamped a lot of products since I started. Needlesstosay I threw a lot of stuff. I have a few boxes of samples ready for donation to a women’s shelter or somewhere similar. I’ve got some really old product that needs to go too. The rationale used for purging that room was pretty easy: If I wouldn’t want to put it on someone’s face it’s out the door.
My closet is a big project. I already took out some stuff that I’m going to bring to school. I’d rather give a sweatshirt to a kid that could use it. Plus, if it has my school name on it, kids would probably be cool with it.
Do any of you have a suggestion for organizing jewelry? I’ve got a lot of cool stuff that I’ve accumulated from my various travels. I like to wear it, but it gets put aside and I forget about it.
It feels good to get rid of all of this stuff. So I’ll keep plugging away…
