40% Off! W00T!

I now have a bedroom set.  That means I have furniture with surfaces.  Given my normal slob tendencies, the surfaces will be covered with flotsam and jetsam* and my apartment will start on an inexorable slide toward mess.

That's the old me.  Whether I stay here, or move back or on, I want that part gone.  I decided that I'm going to iterate the goal I mentioned yesterday of getting rid of 50% of my miscellany: once I get rid of half, I'm going to start again.

I stopped in Sears to look for a few things.  I didn't find anything I liked except for this jewelry box.  $65 and 40% off.

One more girl item gets put where it belongs and I think I'll be smiling more when I walk into my bedroom.

I think a makeup organiser is next.

* I know I'm misusing the terms.  Mea culpa.


  1. Getting rid of the detritus from a previous incarnation is very liberating!
    Want flotsam? I got some. Need jetsam? I can get some.

  2. Meg -

    The more you furnish your apartment, the more like the Meg that you would like to be, that you become. Furnishings like the Jewelery Chest help to define who lives in a space, and the choices you are making both influence who you are becoming and reflect who you are.

    Enjoy the trip.... There will be a lot of bumps along the way, but the endpoint is in sight - a self actualized Meg....


My day is brighter when I hear from my friends!
