I am in no way a fashionista. And I don’t buy expensive things. But every once in a while you need some fresh new things to wear. So I bought new top, jeans, shoes, a bra, socks, earrings and even a new scent to wear. It will feel good to go into work one day soon feeling fresh and new.
After cleaning my bedroom closet it only seemed natural that I complete this task next.
Because well of course when I cleaned out my closet I got rid of a lot of clothes that either no longer fit me or I just never wear.
I still have more clothes in my closet than I need or probably wear, but maybe if I go through everything again in a month or so I can continue to declutter.
So Spring is here and it only seems appropriate to start some Spring Cleaning.
I thought cleaning out the closet was going to be really difficult but after some of my purging efforts that as part of my other things for the year I had a lot less clutter than expected.
The closet is still full… because I still have way too much stuff. But it is cleaned and more organized, so there is definitely a nice sense of relief.
As some of you may have learned from me over the last couple months, I often find myself in routines and find a hard time getting out of them. Often this relates to using the same shampoo, or wearing the same clothes, or eating at the same restaurant. Much of the list I have formulated is to break myself from the molds I have formed for my life, try new things, and have new experiences. Which is what life should be all about.
Some of these things or tasks are super simple and others develop more complex situations.
Today it is simple: detox/exfoliate my skin. I bought a new product-
I just have to remind myself to try a new kind of facial cleanser in a couple months.
I have actually read that changing your shampoo on a regular basis is good for your hair, particularly because your hair gets somewhat immune to a brand or kind after a while.
Because of this I quite often switch what I am using but in most cases I switch between three different kinds and do not try new ones often.
So at the store I just randomly picked a new shampoo that seemed legit.
Coconut Water Shampoo
I went all out and bought the conditioner too. 😂
I used it tonight and my hair seems to be a little healthier. I guess I will see how it looks and feels tomorrow.
Just a little more purging for the day. And a new task to check off the list. (Which should probably be done more often than I like to admit.)
This task makes me feel a little more productive and organized. It also made me feel like I should go grocery shopping to have more items (and health foods) around.
Even though this is only the third day of purging items I think this is going to be great for my mood and daily life. It feels great to organize and get rid of things that sit in piles and cause clutter.
I found this interesting article of 10 Ways to Declutter and there are a few on there that I might try. One specific is to get rid of one item every day for a year. I am starting with a month but maybe just try and continue past that.
While I was researching for this I also found a Woman Did Not Spend Money for a Year. Of course she paid rent, bills, debts, and bought food but she cut out unnecessary items. I have on my list “do not spend money for a day” but I might add time to that. This could really help me save money for that house I am trying to buy too!
