Life : My weekend. Getting Organised.

This weekend was all about getting organised. Organised with my blog, organised around the home. Tom and I have decided we have far too much stuff and it was time to start the process of a bit of a declutter. I wouldn't say I am a hoarder but I definitely have a habit of keeping things that realistically I could live without! I thought the best place to start out little mission would be the wardrobe and our dvd/cd shelves. We actually have  a lot of duplicate Dvds, so it was about time we started to sort them out. Eventually once everything is sorted into piles we are going to sell some of it. We may not make much but it will be nice to gain a few extra pennies for either our house fund or to put away for a rainy day.

I do think next on my hit list will be my beauty products. I do have a fair bit - probably not as much as some other bloggers mind you! But I know I just need to start using things up and giving away/selling the products that just aren't being shown much love. You may remember a while ago I was making an effort not to buy any more products and finish what I already owned. I actually did pretty well and used up a lot of my stash. I admit, I've had a few naughty months where I've bought stuff so I think now its time to start again with this mini mission. Not only will I rediscover products I forgot I had - Mac Lightscapade I'm looking at you - but I'll hopefully save myself some money by not rushing out and buying a new body moisturiser when I actually 3 or 4 others stashed in my drawer already! It'll be nice to get back into the swing of my Project Samples series too, I miss doing that... I sure do have a nice selection of samples to get through too!

What did you get up to this weekend?

Much Love,


  1. It might sound a bit weird, but I love organising and sorting things out! I'm quite OCD when it comes to everything being in its right place, but I need to start using things up too instead of buying more :)xo

  2. I actually did this last night, in just my bedroom. I through out two large black sacks full of clutter, have a pile to go to carboots/ebay and a pile for the charity shops. I definitely feel better for doing it but now I have two empty shelves and a draw and I'm looking at them with the need to fill them and buy more stuff, opps! xo

  3. I need a weekend like this. I have so much crap. Especially the sample situation. I forgot to buy moisturiser the other week so had a look in my drawers, I have tonnes of the stuff! xx
