I am still desperately trying to catch up on my decluttering… so after yesterday’s decluttering post, I’m going to do another one for day #4 of five photos, five stories. I am going to go a bit our of order though, and jump from week #6 to week #8…
I have a confession… I actually did this decluttering task at the same time as I did my dresser top… I was in my bedroom, on a roll with the cleaning and decided to just keep going… So, not only am I posting it out of order, I actually did the decluttering out of order… anyway…
I don’t really have many purses or bags… but the chair where I keep them was a mess… probably mostly from my clothing, but I wanted to go through my bags and see if I could get rid of a few… and I did.
I got rid of a couple bags that were starting to fall apart, some that I had never used or were keeping for no reason other than they were a gift… and I settled on a few bags to keep.
Now that I have sorted through them, I want to store them in an easy way so that I can easily swap bags, and make use of all of them… I want each bag to have a spot, but I haven’t quite got there yet. I want to buy a couple hooks to go on the side of my dresser to hang my nice purses from. When I do that, I will post an update to this post.
Being able to easily swap bags will be a bit of a process because I have a tendency to fill my purses full of junk… So, with this decluttering process I also emptied out the purse I was currently using, and put things away. Since doing this, I have been pretty diligent at emptying out my purse every night, and putting the key things (my phone, wallet & keys) on my freshly decluttered dresser to be put in to whichever purse or bag I decide to use in the morning. This has really been helpful.
Little cat was helping me with this process and showed her approval of the newly cleaned chair.
So there you have it, my purses have been pared down to only a few, and hopefully very soon I will have a pretty storage solution that I can show you.
Do you have multiple purses or bags? How do you deal with swapping between them?
Another day of the of my five photos, five stories challenge is done. If you missed my previous posts this week, Jillian from How To Be Myself nominated me for the five photos, five stories challenge where I am to post a different photo with a story for five consecutive days, and nominate another blogger to do the challenge each day. I’m not sure that I am totally following the rules, since I am sort of posting things that I would have posted anyway… and they just happen to have photos, with sort of stories… Oh well, that’s how I’m doing it… Today I will nominate Jessica at Settle Your Finances. And don’t worry, participation is totally optional, so no worries if you don’t want to.
