downsizing my girlie stuff [day 242]
As I stated a few days ago, I’m behind on my 2-per-week goal of creating trashograms. Although these are fun to make, I’m finding other opportunities that have much more impact in the trash society world. I have a few trashograms to share, then some news to share.
I don’t wear a lot of makeup, as a matter of fact, most would say I don’t wear any. I do wear a little bit of eye shadow and sometimes lipstick. (I cringe as I say these things) I’m not opposed to makeup or people that wear makeup, as it’s a personal choice. My reasons for not liking it is it takes way to long to put on and I prefer to stay low maintenance. I also hate the way my face feels with all that paint clogging my pores. I had horrible skin that used to breakout all the time. I stopped makeup foundation and about 98% of it cleared up. Anyway, this is makeup that I’ve had a long time, most of it I was talked into buying. I downsized my makeup by approximately 75%.
I gave this to a couple of pre-teen girls to use for playtime. I don’t like to play dress up.
I had lots of nail polish too. I don’t mind using this stuff on my toes in the summer, and I have 2 colors I like, so I kept those. The rest? Gave it to the girls. I downsized my nail polish by about 80%.
I have a lot of this and I never wear it. I don’t even know where half of it came from, but I do know I’ve had it for years. This tangled mess of metal is just more clutter I don’t need. I downsized my jewelry by about 80%.
Okay, enough of the girlie stuff, here’s some trash society news. I’ll still keep doing trashograms when I see a good opportunity for one, however I will not be doing the 2 per week any longer. I’ve found that there’s much more value in experimentation and cost analysis projects, so that will be a new direction. There’s also some exciting changes coming soon on the trash society blog. I’m working on a bit of a redesign to make the blog more functional. If there’s anything you would like to see on here, please let me know. :)
