Why Does It Feel So Good
Why Does It Feel So Good when I consolidate things in my house? I mean, I feel like I’m almost euphoric. There are about a bazillion little bitty trial size hand lotions in my bathroom. Sadly, I also have seven large bottles of hand lotion. Consolidate! I threw away a trash can FULL of little empty containers, and let me tell you, friends, it feels.
There may be something wrong with me. I’m not a clutter bug. I do not collect things (I was a huge couponer, and I still have bottles upon bottles of conditioner, lotion, floss, and mouthwash.) I do have a goal, though, and this goes along with us saving money. I’m going through our household cleaners, and what I had, I’m replacing them with all-natural things like baking soda, vinegar, castile soap, Onguard, and essential oils. I’m using what I have until it is gone, and then I make more because I already have bought the bottles.
As for my bathroom, I’m doing the same thing. I’m forcing myself to use lotion more, to use all the leftover deodorants, soaps, conditioners. I have a habit of running out of something. Then I put it on my grocery list, run to the store to get it, and realize I had an abundance already. What a colossal waste of money.
The days are OVER, I tell you! O.V.E.R. It is time to use it up before I buy. Then, maybe, if I can do well at it, I will start couponing again. Any excess will only be the things I need or what I can donate.
I may not even be able to sleep because my mind is thinking of “what else can I consolidate and organize.”
