So, I have spend the last weekend “Konmarie” a few things. I have completed the personal care category, discarding rarely used items, serum that no longer work so well, makeup past their prime and other small items that I wonder, why do I keep them?
As Marie Kondo recommends, I start by pulling all the bottles, jars, little pots and whatnots from the medicine cabinet, drawers, under the sink, and put them on the floor. Next, I did hold each one of the item and asked if this sparks “Joy”, and did I like using it? Not surprisingly, I kept most of my skin care items, but discard away most of the make-up.
Next, it was cleaning the cabinets, drawers, wipe the bottles with alcohol or cloth, and then return them to the rightful place. I must admit, it does look better, and this week skincare routine is more relaxing than usual.
Hubby also shares the main drawer with me. While I did take every thing out, and wipe them clean, I did not remove his things. He does not have a lot to begin with, so it was an easy job cleaning them.
I wonder which category I should do next? I know I have thousand of photos to sort, but that is really a big project. Maybe I should do some garden maintenance instead, the plants are not doing so good (sad face!!)
