I’ve been thinking about purchasing a dresser for a while now. My closet is on the small side, so I thought I needed a dresser to hold all of my clothes.
Turns out, I just needed to get rid of some of my stuff! 😉
After spending several hours cleaning, dusting, and hauling out donations, I finally realized that my current storage space, while not as large as I’d like, is perfectly sufficient.
Decluttering has also helped me take an inventory of some of my stuff:
- 20 pairs of shoes
- 63 books
- 16 purses / handbags
- 25 pairs of earrings
- 8 bottles of moisturizer
- 5 foundations (liquid + powder)
- more dresses/skirts than I care to count
And all of the above is counted after I’ve finished cleaning/organizing.
Whenever I’m watching HGTV, one refrain that I hear from home buyers is that they need more space. I hope that when I’m ready to buy a home, I’ll remember that it’s a lot cheaper to get rid of stuff than to buy a bigger place!
