Decluttering My Life

Have you ever walked into a room and suddenly realize how much unnecessary stuff you have? There is no reason for me to be living with so much excess around me. I have so much that I don’t use or need and I keep it around for who knows why.  Clutter stresses me out and makes me feel closed in, overwhelmed, and just… I think it’s time to make a change. Yesterday, I spent about 3 hours sorting through all of my makeup and beauty products. I organized them, wrote lists (a sort of inventory) of everything that I have. I filled more pages than I thought I would…so I decided to start a project pan that consists of 17 makeup products and 17 beauty products (for 2017).

I am putting myself on a STRICT NO BUY. This means I will not purchase any makeup or beauty products unless I ‘need’ it or run out of all other products like it. I’m starting this project pan with older, less used products to get use out of them before they go bad.

I also need to get out of my makeup rut. Lately, I haven’t been spending a lot of time being creative with my looks and it’s something that I used to really enjoy. This will give me a jump-start and help me rediscover and work with products that I haven’t been reaching for. Ultimately, I’d like to downsize my makeup collection and my stash of beauty products to only my favorites and things I ‘need’.

Accompany me on my journey! Talk to you soon!

  1. I’m in the same boat, but I’ve been buying a ton. It’s my birthday month, I needed new clothes and shoes because everything I had was too small from before the baby and I only had fall/winter clothes, and I treated myself to a little money after working all year during tax time. No more buying after the end of my birthday money, except for the $20 in khols cash that I need to spend. I’m 18 lbs more than I was premom. My goal is to lose 8 lbs this year and start exercising again.
