I’ve been seeing a lot of blogs recently about decluttering, a topic that’s near and dear to my post-move heart.
Now that most things are neatly stored away, I sometimes forget what I already own. This leads to embarrassing discoveries when I buy something and realize later that I already have more of the same or similar — often in multiples.
My particular nemesis is skin care, especially bath products. For some reason I can’t resist new ones. Is it because these luxuries are relatively inexpensive? Because of the implied promise of silkier skin, relaxation, leisure, stress relief, or dare I say even a more youthful appearance?
From now on, I’m going to try to remember to check all those carefully labeled storage bins before I succumb to the siren call of another new lotion, potion or emotion.
Does anyone else have this, er, problem?
