There’s nothing like “keeping it real” here on the blog. And it doesn’t get more “real” than the linen closet in my bathroom. It’s where I stash towels, sheets, duvets, makeup, my blowdryer and a slew of other lady products. It’s become so bad that I do the ole shove-and-run when I put anything else in it. I stick an item in, slam the cabinet door closed and hope that nothing falls on my head the next time I need something. If this isn’t bad enough, I decided to empty the contents and reveal what I had inside.
Listen. I AM NOT PROUD OF THIS. I’m about as low maintenance as it gets so why all the junk? As you know, I’ve been trying to green my beauty routine for some time now, so I knew I had to do a major purge. I decided to limit myself to just one tiny basket of nail polish and makeup. I sorted items into a keep, toss or donate pile. I had plenty of barely used hair products that I could drop off to a shelter and some of the nail polish I was keeping was way past its prime.
And the end result? …drumroll please…
This is it! I was able to pare everything down to just this one small basket. I’ve kept some of my better makeup for when I actually need to try and look good and limited my nail polish to just the good bottles that I actually use. The rest is in the garbage or in a box waiting to be donated. And the best part? My closet isn’t a hazard anymore! Hurray!
