You are probably wondering, 100 Days of Letting Go and More Pink? What does that mean?
I have always wanted to begin this project, however, just never got around to actually doing it.
A project that my friend Bonnie S. had done last year and is actually doing it again this year.
Oh yes, I would toss out things here and there, when the mood struck.
But, never sticking to the rules of the game. Game? That is what I am going to call it.
The “pink” will come later in the post.
The Game . . . . . so here are the rules:
On the first day, you toss out or donate 100 things,
the next designated day, you toss out or donate 99 things, and so on.
Now you may think . . . do I have that much stuff to part with?
Yes, you will be surprised.
So join me on my journey of my 100 Days of Letting Go.
My closet is rather small when you compare it to my house being 4500 plus square feet.
I have procrastinated on purging the shoes.
I did not really think of myself of having a tremendous amount of shoes,
like my sisters, a.k.a. the Imelda Marcos twins.
However, when I started letting go of shoes that are too worn, out dated
or have not worn much, I was shocked!
Now if my friend Linda M. is seeing this, she probably is thinking,
“you still have those shoes? … you bought those 15 years ago!”
I keep my shoes in either their original shoe box or the plastic shoe boxes
you have seen stacked (empty) in the above photo.
In the plastic shoe boxes, I can often place 2 pair of shoes in them. Saves space!
I either label the plastic bin or for the most part,
I take a photo of the shoes, print it out and place the copy on the front of the box.
It is a great way to find the shoes by looking for the picture of them! 🙂
At one point, I ran out of “shoe shelf” space in my closet,
so I took my “flip flop” type sandals and my ballet flats,
placed them in ziplock bags and placed them in a large drawer.
Now I think I can place those shoes back in the closet now.
I then went through some of my dresser drawers and part of the closet.
I have done a recent purge of my closet, and still needed to do more.
So let’s count …. 38 pair of shoes.
Now I did ask Miss Bonnie if a pair of shoes counted as 2 pieces.
I think the answer was NO!
3 belts, and 59 pieces of clothing…now I did count a “pant suit” as 2 pieces! 🙂
I have more of my closet to go through and clothes in other closets!
Day One . . . . 100 things . . . . DONE!
Now on to “the more pink”
I added a little pink to the Master Bedroom and Bath.
Started with some pink roses and a switcheroo of pillows on the sofa.
I added a soft pink ruffled throw to the chair
that I won a long time ago from Janet of Shabbyfufu
I never realized how great it would look with the sofa.
It used to be in my Sweetie’s room that is currently getting a major makeover.
I added a bit of pink to the Master Bathroom.
A little bit of pink goes a long way.
As I am working on projects around the house,
I am also working on adding to the pile of “99”
I think I will be close to the “99” from one area real soon!
Let the games begin!
Have a most beautiful day!
