Why do we keep all these things?

Why do we keep all of these things?

I’m sure this is a question everyone reading this blog has asked themselves at one point in time.

I know my house is clean and organized but also could use improvements in some areas. One day I was on Instagram and saw a lot of people cleaning and decluttering their homes because of a new show on Netflix with Marie Kondo (I think that’s how you spell it.) Anyways I learned how to fold items to get more in a drawer which I wasn’t currently doing and this helped out a lot, especially my husbands shirts (this man has every under armour shirt in all colors).

I also folded my towels, hand towels and wash clothes and realized we have kept a lot that are tattered or discolored and need to be thrown away which I did do. Later I realized that the towels could have been donated to the dog shelter because they always need towels. I will keep that in mind next time we need new towels. I did keep two or three old towels in the closet under our steps which now I am glad I did because we had a pipe burst and a leaking hot water heater last week and I needed those old towels to help clean up that mess.

I moved on to socks, I basically just folded them together which was stretching out the band of the sock. I asked myself why do we keep all these socks that don’t have a match and may have a hole? So I got rid of a ton and actually had room in the drawer for other items.

I still need to get rid of more but slowly working on it. I can’t wait to get a day off and on trash night leave the trash men a huge surprise in the morning for the next upcoming weeks. I’m sure they won’t be happy. I wish my homeowners association would have a dumpster day cause I’m sure I could fill up some of it. I just don’t feel like selling some of it at a yard sale. I also know the lady who I believe is a hoarder down the road could use one for herself. Lol

Anyways get to organizing and cleaning. I know I will be.

You can always donate used old towels and blankets to your local dog rescues or animal shelters they always need things like this.

Need a dress?

Hi I recently was invited to a wedding and I love weddings but hate trying to find a dress that fits me and is the style that I like.

Well speaking to another co-worker about trying to find a dress she told me that she always uses Rent the Runway app and has had great dresses for weddings and other events.

Link. $30 off

You get a designer high dollar dress that maybe you wouldn’t pay for, for a great rental price.

The reviews are so great you see actual pics of the person in the dress and most people put bra size and what size they usually wear and what dress they decided to wear from rent the runway.

You can rent for a great price and they send the dress a few days prior to the event and guess what? You get two sizes to try on and if they don’t fit you can ask for a different size or different dress that will be overnighted to you for your event. The whole process went smoothly.

I will rent again soon for another event. Afterwards I dropped my dresses off at a ups drop box which was across the street from my house.

Click on my link and you will get $30 off your rental.

Here are pics of my dress which was around $300-400 dress that I rented for $30 which I don’t think you can beat. I decided on the 4 day rental but they also have a 7 day rental as well. Plus a membership if u want to go that route and rent more items on a more frequent basis.
