Last weekend my two daughters and I went shopping. I didn't need a thing, but of course that didn't stop me and I never turn down an invitation to hang out with them. One stop was Home Goods and I saw a drawer organizer. This I needed. I did.
|9 Inches wide|
A quick call home to interrupt Brawn's flu and ask him to measure the top center drawer width in our bathroom. 9" wide? Perfect, the organizer also was 9" wide. It was meant to be in my non mathematical mind.
|9 inch wide swath of crap|
The organizer did not go in easily, duh 9 inches on both items leaves no room for give. But I forced it in. I only split a small spot on the drawer side and it's not even noticeable. It's in, and it ain't coming out!
I discovered this little treasure under 100 eye liner pencils. I think it was my mom's and I tossed it in that drawer over 10 years ago. It will go nicely with the vintage barber shop junk we inherited with an old building we bought.
And I found this.....
The missing alligator claw from a Florida vacation back in 1994. I need a show of hands please if anyone else has an alligator claw in their makeup drawer. Don't be shy, speak up.
Amazingly I got rid of very little stuff. 'Got rid' of as in threw in the trash. I did take out all the tooth related items and put it in a Velveeta box for now. I'll organize the cabinet I tucked that into another day. I also put the claw back in. What else am I gonna do with it? Can you find it? Where's Clawdo.
The most amusing thing to me was that I have so many lipsticks. They must be from Halloween costumes since the one beauty item I use the least is lipstick. I have my mothers old lipsticks, some from the girls when they were in dance, and a few I thought I might like. Give me an eyeliner pencil, some fragrance and flavor free lip stuff and a bit of face lotion and I'm pretty much good to go.
We also made this purchase at Costco. No I didn't eat it all myself, (thought about just rubbing it right on my ash). There is always plenty of help around here for cheesecake eating, just not drawer organizing.
