- Day 7: I somehow managed to flood my makeup bag, so this sparked a long string of finding items that I didn't reel the need to salvage. Here we have two unused chapsticks (chapsticks are a sham, lip balm is what's up), one eyeshadow pallet I'm almost certain is from when I first started attempting the smoky eye in 2006, a dried up mascara and 3 plastic silverware sets (not from the makeup bag). All trash.
- Day 8: Totally deleted the photo from my phone and didn't sync to my laptop - but day 8 was all more randomness from my makeup bag. A few more eyeshadows and some brushes. Trash.
- Day 9: The third and final day of the makeup bag clean-out. A sharpener lid, an eye cream, an eye liner, 4 icky brushes. For the last two items, I finally came to terms with the fact that my basil and tomato plants were done producing. All trash. P.S. if anyone can help me think of a sustainable way to reuse and recycle soil from indoor plants for future use, please comment below! 2014 was the first year I had any sort of green thumb so I'm open to all advice for the future!
- Day 10: A popcorn maker - I just can use the stove - two pairs of sunglasses, two candles, a shelf, a tray, the beads that the candles sat on and 2 empty containers for painted wineglasses, which I now am displaying proudly on my bar cart. The candles were pitched, the two wine glass boxes were recycled, and everything else will be donated.
- Day 11: One pair of really nice Fossil sunglasses, a headband, an Ohio State scrunchy (don't ask), some fake flowers for hair, some pins I wore in my hair when I was in a wedding 5 years ago, a barrette, 3 hair ties. I'm going to try to sell the barrette, the flowers and the sunglasses to a consignment store. Everything else will be donated.
It was still smooth sailing over here for the Minimalist Challenge. Days 7-11 really brought up some "why do I still have these things?" moments.
I'm just a twenty-something female raising the weirdest dog I've ever met.
