I’ve never been very good at downsizing…. Well anything at all. When I was 10 I was obsessed with collecting newspapers to make collages, ask my Mum, I had a pile so big that she made me throw them all out because… You know fire hazards and stuff.
So when I started blogging and there was a main focus on beauty I went a little ham. I would buy full collections to review and kept up with all the new release – for years. That’s left me with a lot of stuff that I just don’t know what to do with. I’m not surrounded with a tonne of people who are interested in beauty so palming products off to family and friends isn’t as easy as it sounds so things have gotten a little out of control.
Over the past year I’ve become less beauty obsessed and I feel I’ve found my jam with a routine of products I love. That’s not to say I’m not still more interested in the beauty industry then the average joe but I’ve gotten to the point where I can’t keep consuming beauty products because my storage is low and walking into my office gives me a tight feeling of panic at the best of times.
There is just too much.
I’ve been banging on about clearing out but now I’m deadly serious on doing a massive, massive clear out. So much so I don’t want to house products in the tower if possible… That’s probably a tad extreme but you get, I’m getting lethal. I started on a pile that I had already cleared out in one of my half ass attempts but that was mainly things that I knew were so old and needed to go rather then the things I do particularly use.
My question to you is how do you want me to blog about it? Would you like a series or just one overview? I’m leaning towards a series 2-3 posts a month broken down by categories. I feel like that way it won’t take over my content but we will still churn through it. I do want to share it so that I’m accountable for what I’m keeping rather then doing it away from the blog.
Have you got to the point where you just needed get brutal?
