Giving Stuff Away
A couple weeks ago, I decided to do another purge on my bathroom since I felt super invigorated last time I did this.
This time I was going to set the bar higher. Anything that I think I haven’t used in the last 6 months goes.
I got rid of all my nail polish but one (in Holiday Red!).
I got rid of all my perfume with the exception of this Jo Malone (from my trip to Paris last year with BF) and two perfume oils I got when traveling in Egypt (in Gardenia and Lotus).
I got rid of all my fragrant body lotion and left myself with a basic Vaseline.
I got rid of my extra non SLS shampoo and conditioner.
I got rid of the make up that I wore a Christmas party that one time to match my green dress.
I got rid of extra make up gift bag and goodies that relatives had gifted / donated to me.
I didn’t toss most of these out. (Those perfumes are good stuff, but I just don’t use it. Most of them were gifts.)
So, I brought them to work and asked if any of the girls wanted them.
I had some good grub ;):
- The Body Shop
- Bath and Body Works
- Tresor by Lancome
- Blue by Ralph Lauren
The girls loved it and I was super happy that all my neglected belongings now have new homes. BF commented that no wonder I’m so popular, I give out free grub 😉
My next mission: Get rid of that teeny tiny bottle of suppose-to-make-my-hair-produce-less-oil thingy that I paid $26 for at the salon(!). It didn’t really work on me. I’m not sure who I could give that to, and it would be a waste to toss it 😦
Update: This is it – it’s called Oil Detox Leave in Treatment by Redken (I Googled it after I wrote this…)
What are different ways that you get rid of your clutter without just tossing things? How do you think I should part with my next mission item?
