Preparing to move. A.K.A. THROW AWAY ALL YOUR &@#%
Posted by Lissa on September 14, 2010
I’m HUGELY grateful that Mike’s company will do our packing for us. It’s the only reason I’m not a gibbering hysterical wreck right now. That being said, there’s still a bunch of work to be done on our part. The movers can’t pack up that random stuff under the spare room bed, which includes cat toys, hair ties, a pair of shoes, random batteries and a pair of flip flops, y’know?
So this past weekend I tackled the big cupboard underneath my bathroom sink.
I was ruthless. I was merciless. I pictured myself as the Genghis Khan of bathroom paraphernalia. I dispatched toiletries like Michael Moore dispatches doughnuts.
Half-full bottle of hairspray last used one year ago? Toss!
Bright cranberry lipstick received as a gift and never worn in public? Toss!
New bottle of Clinique black mascara . . . hmmm . . . Oh, received as a Christmas gift two or three years ago? Toss!
Sunblock left over from 2008? Toss!
Sample bottles of Renu that I no longer need? (Hooray!!!!) Toss!
The hairdryer I bought back in college and last used a year ago? Toss!
Any bottle of nail polish older than twelve months? Toss!
I threw away TWO GARBAGE BAGS FULL of junk. I don’t know how it was physically possible for that much crap to live under my sink.
Next up: The Closet!
P.S. Mike has kindly agreed to do a guest post for me in the next few days; keep an eye out!
