Update On The Big Purge
If you missed the details of the Big Purge, you can catch up HERE!! I had gathered quite a bit in that purge pile, but I definitely wasn't finished. I sorted through everything, even makeup bags, at least twice...but most categories I sorted through several times.
At the end of it all, I feel pretty darn amazing...lighter, less burdened, and my choices are easier and nearly stress-free :-) And here are the results...
Here we go!! One bag is full of skincare, hair & body stuff and samples. The other bag is makeup. At the bottom are makeup bags. There are a few things here not pictured, as I have already given them away or they are set aside for people, but this is the bulk of all the stuff I chose to let go :-)
Care to see some numbers? Here's what I'm getting rid of...
Nail stuff: 18
Shadow singles: 9
Shadow palettes: 3
Shower Wash: 2
Samples (all sizes): 53
Makeup Bags: 5
Big Purge Total: 139
For the year, I previously only purged 14 products. But now my year-to-date purge total is...
YTD Total: 153
Let's see those makeup drawers, shall we?!!
Previously I had this...
Plus this! If you missed that post, you can catch up HERE.
And now I'm down this this ONE drawer, plus 2 big palettes (the Shu Uemura Neutral palette and some Burberry and RBR depots that are in a Z palette) that are too wide to fit sideways. Granted, this one drawer is a little more closely packed than either of the 2 drawers were before...but I still think that's pretty darn good!! You can see how it's organized below...
I'm really excited :-) Ideally I'd like to keep my stash around the same size (or smaller?!!!), so I'm hoping to stay ruthless and purge on a very regular basis.
If you are interested in some other reads, here are some ladies that are also on a big purge and declutter:
Have you purged anything lately? Or do you consider yourself more of a collector?
