I’ve been fairly silent on the topic of house hunting ever since our first contract fell through, but I can say now with a fair amount of certainty that we are officially moving in just over two weeks! Excited doesn’t even come close to explaining how I’m feeling. I am pumped to be getting out of my mom’s house since we were here way longer than we planned. And then there are practical matters that make this great timing as well, namely being that all my fall/winter clothes are packed away in boxes and its starting to get cold. I’ve had to get very creative with the limited amount of clothing I have at my immediate exposure.
I need to apologize for the lack of videos on my Youtube channel recently. I lost the plate that connects my camera to my tripod and then I bought the wrong one. I think I’ve got the situation remedied and the correct plate is now on its way to me. With that said I am so excited to get back to filming. I have a whole list of videos I want to film just about the house. I can’t wait to share the buying, renovating, and decorating process with yall. Before we get to that though I will probably have a few more planner related videos to film prior to moving and my final pre-move empties video.
The upcoming empties video is actually what sparked me to write this post (before I went off on a tangent). I am now in use-it-up mode with several makeup and skin care products that are on their last leg. My daily beauty mantra has been “the more I use, the less I move.” I mean, yeah, in the grand scheme of things using a few beauty products isn’t going to make the move any less strenuous, but it will certainly make organizing the clutter post-move a bit less stressful. There is, of course, the added bonus of achieving the super satisfying used-every-last-drop feeling that comes along with adding another empty product to my empties bin.
The use it up list is short, but keep in mind I have just over two weeks to accomplish these goals. Some of these items are almost empty, while others I just want to use up to clear out beauty clutter. Here’s what I’m aiming for:
- 1 face powder
- 1 tinted moisturizer
- 1 moisturizer
- 1 acne treatment
- 1 tube of cream face mask
- 2 packs of eye gels
- 2 sheet masks
- 1 face wash
My empties bin is already overflowing, but I’ll be sure to mention in the video which of the goals items I was able to use up.
I don’t know about yall, but for me setting these types of goals really helps me focus and stay on track. Are any of you working on using up a stash of products? I would love to hear about what keeps you motivated.
