I’m not the only one who tackled a project this week! The boys went through their video game cabinet and got rid of all the games they no longer play. They took them GameStop and now have $75 in store credit!
When summer started, I decided that I would tackle the ‘me’ projects right before school resumed so that my school year started off fresh. ‘Me’ projects include my makeup drawer, my bathroom, my medicine cabinet, and my closet. I worked on my makeup drawer this week, which was a weird project. Most of my makeup wasn’t actually in my makeup drawer. We travelled a couple of times this year and my makeup never made it back to the drawer. Instead, it housed dozens of makeup samples, powder dust, infrequently used brushes, and a lot of expired makeup.
I tossed out quite a bit, though it’s hard to tell from the pictures since all my makeup was scattered around the bathroom. I tried to limit it to the basics, but did keep all 200 of my tweezers despite knowing the boys will only use the newest, sharpest set on complicated Lego builds. I have two foundations (one full coverage, one a tinted moisturizer), two blushes (one cream, one powder), two primers (one sparkly, one matte), two mascaras (one lengthening, one thickening), and four lip colors (two glosses, two lipsticks). My makeup drawer is the Noah’s Ark of cosmetics.
School is right around the corner and I’m starting to feel the end of summer blues. Anyone else?
