Why Ethiopia? Aside from the fact, the Lord led me to adopt from Africa? Adoption…
Why Does It Feel *So* Good….
When I consolidate things in my house? I mean…I feel like I’m almost euphoric overtaking my bazillion little bitty trial size hand lotions and mixing them with the 7 large things of hand lotion that I already have. I threw away a trash can FULL of little empty containers and let me tell you….it feels GOOD!!!!!!!!!!!
There may be something wrong with me LOL. I’m not a clutter bug. I do not collect things (I was a huge couponer, and I still have bottles upon bottles of conditioner, lotion, floss, and mouthwash.) I do have a goal, though and this goes along with us saving money. I’m going through our household cleaners, and what I had, I’m replacing with all natural things like baking soda, vinegar, castile soap, Onguard, and essential oils. I’m using what I have until it is gone and then I just make more because I already have bought the bottles. As for my bathroom, I’m doing the same thing. I’m forcing myself to use lotion more, to use all the leftover deodorants, soaps, conditioners. I have a habit of running out of something, and then I put it on my grocery list…run to the store to get it and then realize I had 7 bottles that have never been touched. What a colossal waste of money.
Them days are OVER, I tell ya! O.V.E.R. It is time to use it up before I buy. Then, maybe, if I can do really well at it, I will start couponing again for ONLY the things I need or are not necessarily a need for me, but things I can donate to food pantries or people in need.
I seriously may not even be able to sleep because my mind is flooded with “what else can I consolidate and organize.”
I think I may need therapy……….
