About once a year, I get in the mood to throw everything of mine away. It’s strange, but I go through phases when suddenly I hate everything I own, which also makes me want to buy all new things.
It started earlier this week when I decided to Spring clean my nail polish bins. Yes, that is plural.
This is only a glimpse of how girly-girl I really am. And to this girl who said she only owns three bottles of polish, I do not know how you even live.
When I woke up this morning, the Spring cleaning continued. I decided to get rid of anything in my closet that I haven’t worn in a year. If I haven’t worn something in that long, that usually means I don’t like it, it doesn’t fit, or…it’s a jacket. *sniff*
The closet cleaning turned into a big floor pile. About half of that will make it to Goodwill and I’ll wimp out and keep the other half. Still, I don’t know how it’s possible to take that much stuff out of my closet and still have no extra room.
Compounded on top of the Spring cleaning and wanting to buy a bunch of stuff I don’t need, I also feel the need to re-decorate. It’s like I want to do everything so I try to do it all at once even though I don’t have the time. So basically I start a bunch of projects and don’t finish them. It’s really frustrating.
Today, I thought it would be a good idea to start a DIY project for my bathroom. I went to Michaels to get the materials for the project but ended up buying Halloween tealight bobbleheads instead.
They are so cute! Apparently I get distracted easily. I would have bought the vampire bobblehead too but the lady shopping next to me took the last two. Who needs two? Honestly. < —- bitter, party of one
Anyway, I have to work tomorrow, which means I won’t have a lot of time, but I’m going to do my best to break the vicious cycle of starting projects and not finishing them. I hereby declare that I will finish that bathroom project and I will clean up that Goodwill pile. Now I’m off to Joann Fabrics to get what I didn’t find at Michael’s. Hopefully I won’t come home with a garden gnome.
Are you a pack rat or do you get rid of everything? (I get rid of everything. I can’t stand clutter. Hubs has other ideas on that one.)
