This month’s organizing challenge and my hairspray friend
Put your hand up if you have drawers full of makeup and cupboards full of hair supplies. Oh my word, you are so not alone my friend. I’m a hair product junkie. I don’t even want to begin to tally the money I’ve wasted spent on “miracle” hair products over the years and while some of them worked, most of them did not. This isn’t the first time I’ve blogged about this obsession of mine either. Take a look at this post and this post and then please tell me you can relate. Don’t leave me hanging here, I can’t be the only one.
I was doing so well too until the world decided to conspire against me and make my favorite hairspray impossible to find anywhere. Then, because I felt so abandoned and alone, I was forced to look for a new hairspray best friend. Problem is they all want to be my friend and oh the promises they make. I take them home only to find out after a week or so that everything they told me is a lie. A flat out lie. They told me they would be by my side to uplift me and hold me, everyday if need be. I so wanted to believe them, but apparently I’m not the only one they make these promises to. Can you believe that! I’m still struggling but if you happen to have a “friend” that has been faithful to you that you could recommend I’d be forever grateful and up-rooted.
So where was I? Oh yes this month’s challenge! We are on a quest to organize our makeup and hair supplies. I’ll be right there with you that is for sure.
The prize for this month is a fantastic book by Jennifer Ford Berry called Organize Now!: A Week By Week Guide To Simplify Your Space And Your Life
Clutter has a cost. It steals your storage space, robs your time and energy, and takes away the peace and beauty of your home. Why pay for it another minute when you can get organized now?
This book offers practical, action-oriented advice that teaches you how to organize any part of your life in less than one week. Long-term goals help keep the clutter away for the months and years to follow so you can maintain the order you create. You’ll find help with everything from time management and mental clutter to paperwork, pets, purses, toys, rooms and life events such as moving, pregnancy and celebrating the holidays.
Quick, easy-to-follow checklists let you spend more time organizing and less time reading-a perfect fit for your busy lifestyle! Countless tips help make organizing faster, easier and more effective. Special “Live Green” tips show you how to help the environment, and in many cases your wallet, by rethinking, recycling, reducing, and reusing as you organize.
Don’t let piles of paperwork, overflowing closets and overbooked schedules drain your resources and energy anymore when you can learn how to enjoy a richer, clutter-free life!
All you have to do to participate in Org Junkie’s Monthly Organizing Round-Up this month is organize your makeup and/or hair supplies. I’ll be providing relevant posts throughout the month that will help you through it as well as providing some handy tips from Jennifer’s book.
So go take your BEFORE pictures and then let’s get to work!
