De-cluttering...(and some storage tips)!!

It is that time of the year again when I freak out and start throwing away and giving away lots of my stuff.
This "activity" is what I like to call de-cluttering and I thought that, this year, I should do a post in order to inspire more people to get rid of things they no longer need or want.
This year, I started off with cleaning out my massive bathroom cabinet which had been bombarded with all sorts of products that I haven't used in a long, long time and/ or products that were empty or had expired.
So, I went through all 4 of my drawers and the roll-top storage cabinet and threw away some stuff.
I also went through my make-up collection and threw away some products that were no longer needed or had expired.
These are some of the products that I got rid of...

Now, I took pictures of the two lipglosses I back-to-maced (there is no such phrase is there?!) because I would like to remind you all to check your products regularly and make sure there is no change in consistency and/ or smell. If there is...then get rid of them ASAP.

Then, I re-organised my products according to frequency of usage and type. For example, on the top left drawer I keep all my hair-related products(brushes, pins, ties etc) and next to the sink I have my perfumes and daily skincare products. Here is a little taste of what I did...

The inside of the drawers is not perfect, as much as I would like it to be but at least all my stuff is organized according to what I use them for...!Of course a misc drawer is always a thing and that is O.K.(or at least that's what I keep telling myself).
That is all for today my dear readers. I hope I have inspired you to de-clutter because I promise that once you have you'll feel like a huge weight has been lifted...!
Hope you're all well...


  1. i've been having spring cleaning fever lately too!! i just de-cluttered all my makeup and jewelry accessories :)!! i have that same marc jacobs perfume love it!

  2. It just feels so good after you've de-cluttered. I mean I gave away 50% of my clothes and I feel great because now I can actually see what I have and I can even buy more stuff without feeling guilty.

  3. I do that too, toss the oldies after a while...
    One question though, u store cd's in your bathroom cabinet (said the person who thought it was Friday)? :)


  4. @Tina...yep yep yep...!Somehow it crawled into the bathroom cabinet alongside the baby smurf plushie which we should play a game of "spot the item" with.
    I mean imagine how many useless items were piled up in there...
