I am back to work this afternoon. Dreading it. Ugh. Stay-cations have a lot going for them! I accomplished a lot, fling and quilt-wise, spent time with my hunny and haven’t felt pressured!
In any event, here is category three, which will probably carry me through the weekend, as I work until Sunday.
My toiletries and makeup reside in three locations. The vanity and drawers of both bathrooms and the travel kit I have. If you carry makeup in your purse, don’t forget to fling from there, too.
Fling anything that is in it’s ‘old style’ packaging, and anything that you used at your wedding (unless you just got back from your honeymoon). ‘They’ say anything older than 6 months… (does it pass the smell test?) Have you even USED it lately?? In the past year?
Is it a color that makes you look ill but it cost a lot, or its a good brand? If it makes you look ill, you aren’t going to use it. Ever. Fling it!
A perfume that is too overpowering for you, makes you sneeze? Fling it (or Goodwill/give to someone who will like it…. probably the only item in this category you won’t simply fling into the trash can.)
Tubes and bottles that have only a squidge left, make a shopping list and fling them. Fling your toothbrushes too, and you will be good for a few more months. Don’t forget nail polish.
If you keep cleaning supplies under your sinks they count, too. And the medicine cabinet, wherever that may be. Everything that has expired, fling it. Left over prescription antibiotics, fling!
Once done, can all of the keepers fit comfortably where you would LIKE them to be stored? (basket, drawer, etc.) If not, can you do a second round of flinging to make it work?
(Oh, by the way—Do all of this before you hit the tail end of the Big Sale at Bath and Body Works. It will save you money when you realize you already have 6 bottles of shower gel in reserve!)
