The Modern Woman is writing her saga following her personal challenge to spring clean her body, and the posts are fantastic. I’m trying to spring clean my life at the moment, and it is a huge task!
I started with my skin (see post before last) and then moved to my apartment. My apartment is the disasterous living space you would expect of someone that works 3 jobs and is a self confessed organisational nightmare. So I started in the bathroom and ruthlessly threw out empty boxes, tubes, creams I’d never used, mini samples of potions I didn’t like (couldn’t part with the 4 bottles of sunscreen though). I’d previously thought my bathroom cabinet was full of neccessary products that I constantly used, but it turns out it was chocka block with useless and empty packets and bottles.
I moved to Melbourne almost 18 months ago with just 23kgs of possessions – how on Earth did I end up in the position of owning far too many things (most of which are barely used)?
My wardrobe is exactly the same story. Shirts that are the wrong size, unflattering dresses, odd socks and far too much lingerie. So the mission this week with be to cull a significant percentage of my belongings and send them to a fabulous new home with the power of eBay.
Is anyone else Spring Cleaning or is it something our mothers’ mothers used to do every September? Either way, I’m enjoying the overhaul.
