It’s the last week of Jenny at Words on Wendhurst’s 111 Things in 1/11. All good things must come to an end. If I kept this up, we’d be living in a cardboard box with nothing but a change of clothes and a laptop.
When Jenny asked me to join in December, I have to admit that I wondered whether I could find 111 things to get rid of in one month. Boy! 111 was the tip of the iceberg!
For the last week, I combed through my drawers and closet. I actually purged in the fall, so I didn’t have a ton of things. But, it was definitely more than expected.
The socks and undergarments went into the trash. The clothes and purse went to Goodwill.
I also purged some jewelry. All the jewelry went to Arizona Lainey. I got rid of the few things I know I haven’t worn, even if I like it. It’s crazy to keep things I don’t wear.
Here’s what’s left. Just getting rid of a few makes it look so much neater.
I also went through my bathroom ‘stuff’ and threw away everything that was old or unused by me.
More than I expected.
So, after this, I ended up purging:
2 old hairsprays
1 old shampoo
1 volume spray
14 makeup items/cleansers/eye creams that were out-of-date
2 makeup bags
1 bag of bobby pins
7 hair clips
16 various undergarments
1 eye cream
1 jewelry box
2 pairs of earrings
(64 items purged this week)
Overall, I purged 184 items in January. Wow!
It’s most sad that there’s lots more that still needs to be purged.
What did you purge this month?
