{ purging the clutter }

Spring is here. I have been basking in 70 degree weather, the smell of freshly cut grass, and windows open, a soft light breeze causing the sheers to look like ocean ripples. Then waves. Then tsunamis. And blows things off counters, causing yet another mess for me to clean up.



Yay.

I have decided that I have too much crap. I am not a pack rat, but my tightwad mind gets the better of me at times. The classic thought "I need to save this- one day I will have a use for it" constantly plagues the deep recesses of my brain.

I've been getting better, though. I have discovered a new high that only donating to Goodwill can bring. Refreshing, invigorating, relieving, liberating- I love it!

My sweetheart has mixed feelings.

'Cuz I seem to be more willing to get rid of his junk stuff before mine. Oh well. Baby steps, right?

I have another confession. I like things that smell good. Like lotion.

Oh, yes. The lotion bottles. I have eleven-teen billion of them plaguing my bathroom cabinets and storage. All used. Because... I need change. Not the major life altering change, just little changes, like, rearranging furniture, new hair cut or color, jr. high wardrobe revamp- oh wait. That last one is life altering. Scratch it.

So I like to use different flavors on different days. To match the mood. {Doesn't everyone?}

But no more!!! I am purging my lotion stash! 7 year old vanilla spice lotion, 3 year old orange cream lotion, 2 year old pumpkin spice lotion: This is your eviction notice!!!

But do not worry my sweet containers of yummy smellingness. I will send you to a good home.

Which leads me to announce

Don't fear. I would never give away nasty lotion bottles to you, dear readers, no matter how good they smell. ;)
